We'd had a bit of a rain storm last night and the Lincoln boys were out in it.  The sheep seem to prefer to ignore the rain rather than take the time to run for shelter like the goats do.  Anyways, I was taken with the way the rain had parted their fleeces right down their spines.  The locks are looking so lovely, especially considering that the fellows are barely 3 months old.  Both started out as black lambs with a lighter undercoat but Buddy, in the first picture, is turning almost silver.  Should be interesting to see how their first shearings look next spring.
