I live in ranch country. Most every hill is dotted with cows or sheep (and the occasional goat.) In the winter, usually around mid-December, lambs are born. This often continues into January, and over the months the lambs get older, bigger, and more rambunctious. They are a delight to watch.
As I pack for tomorrow, when I will be flying out to New Zealand where the sheep out number the people by ten to one (40 million sheep, 4 million people) I thought it fitting to share with all of you some images of the sheep near where I live, in Tomales, California.
