Seeking shade

Seeking shade

It was hot today, hot by Irish standards, too hot for doing
much except seeking the shade. It can't be much fun being
a sheep in the warm weather, having to go around with
a big wooly jumper all the time. I guess it will be soon
be time for shearing.

That's not much of a shade tree...

It seems like such a short time ago we were complaining about the cold! They look quite comfortable lying in the cool grass.

It must have been hot for them to take a break from chomping on the grass.
I was out yesterday (4th) and listening to the weather report on my car radio when he said there'd be heavy rain JUST in Ireland and Scotland, as he said it the heavens opened (in Cheshire) and as i passed a field gateway in the torrential rain i spotted lots of sheeps huddled close together sheltering under a tree....just like yours Mairead...but different...
I wanted to take a foto...honest i did.

They'll be tracking down a shearer.
