A-Photo-a-Week-Challenge-Livestock

~~~~~~

In a few weeks time (June) this was

a sight I looked forward to…

 as it meant an income for future years.

Some years, though, it was heart breaking

especially if the weather was nasty…cold

and wet…lambs often died before they stood up.

This was also part of my farming life until the 1983 drought.

After that year it was decreed that sheep had bellies

which were much easier to fill than cattle,

especially in a drought year.

Sheep also did less damage to fences

than hungry, or not hungry, cattle did.

Goodbye cattle.

  1. Seems like a change of stock by necessity. We have both sheep and cattle here in Utah, mostly in the mountain valleys. Wonderful photos. I especially love the ewe and lamb. 🙂 Thanks for joining the challenge!
