Between showers, the sheep and goats have been busy just eating their winter away. On the top left is a beautiful black and white sheep with large curled horns. He is Sequoia. He came to us as a day-old orphan and has been a fabulous companion ever since. He never fails to greet me when I come into his pasture, even if it means he has to stretch a bit to get his now-aging legs moving. He is a Navajo Churro and his fleece is strong and coarse. The shades of black, gray and white make it a treat to felt with. He is probably our largest sheep and our biggest baby. He is never pushy but manages to walk right at my back pocket as I go about my chores.
