Yet more so-so pictures


I don't know how many times I have stopped to take pics of this place and yet I never get one I am proud of.  I am posting it anyway.






Another so, so pic...at least I was straining to turn around enough to take it.  If Roger backed up, till I didn't have to, the tree was in the way.  Why I didn't just get out is more than I know.  But this is one of those Jacob sheep...notice the horns!

cool sheep - glad you remembered the species as it would have driven me crazy trying to think of it.

A very handsome sheep with the beautiful horns.

I really like this old barn. We are losing them at such a fast rate these days. Nice to see one you can see through that is not falling down.

Christine said...

Nothing so-so about them, Rose. I love them both and thanks for the name of the sheep breed as I don't think I've seen any hereabouts.

Tom said...

so, so, nice!

The horns caught my eye right away. Not sure I ever saw this before. And . . . how many times have I asked myself the same question about taking the time to get out and take the photo I know I want. I think it's called 'hurry sickness'.

I enjoyed both pictures regardless of your opinion of them. The sheep is fascinating with those horns.

It has 4 horns! Most unusual... well to me anyway. I have never heard of a Jacob sheep.

Stephanie said...

Wow, horns on the sheep. Great shots!

I love the barn - it has such character. And the sheep is amazing - what horns - watch out for those.
