Dancing sheep

Sheep like to dance. At least lambs do. There are moments in every sheep's life, often when we aren't looking or when we don't have a camera handy, that they dance. They like to have a dance floor tho. So, in several of my photos you will see young sheep laying on or next to their dance floor. It's the top of a big plastic dog house on the ground. Jump over. Jump onto. Whirl around. The sound is fun. It's a step higher than their friends. Two on top can play king of the hill. When they're done, they lay down next to it and nap, like a kid falling asleep with their favorite toy.
Dance like it's the last day of your life, or your first.

I like your last two posts a LOT. Almost poetic. Glad I don't have more predators to deal with here than I do!

I have a piece of plywood for a dance floor. Sometimes in the spring, the little yearling ewes joined together to dance.
