I've been given a hint that I should try and get a pic of a lamb jumping with
all four legs off the ground so I decided to see if I could find any lambs at
play this evening. This gang were happily playing 'King of the Castle' on
the remains of a tree which fell victim to a storm earlier in the year. They
didn't do any 'springing' though so this will have to make do. I will have to
be quick if I want to catch one in the air though, as they stop being so
playful as they get older. Some of these Blackface lambs are already
beginning to look like mini-sheep.

What a sweet springtime scene. I can imagine how much fun they are to watch.

So... not so much a "catwalk" as a "lambwalk", then? I like the expression of the one who isn't on the log; "You want me to SPRING? Yeah, that'll happen..."

A beautiful composition. I can't tell you how much I am enjoying seeing these little lambs, and I adore the black faces. V

It's as easy as falling off a log Mairead heh heh heh.
I was watching a field full of them tonite too, as well as springing around they were also racing madly around the perimeter of the field, then they'd have a conflab then race back to where they started, all good fun.

Jump or not they are so cute yet!

Oh how cute! I hope you are able to catch one mid-air sometime. Would love to see that!

Should've had a glamorous assistant to jump on the other end of the log ;o))
