Farm

 

Three days straight of glorious escapism walking - so many paths revisited or explored anew - we have walked miles and miles. Most paths at some point go through farms as we make our way up onto the more isolated moorlands.

And at this time of year nearly every field is full to bursting point with lambs - this little school of lambs were definitely playing 'king of the castle' and although I did not manage to capture them - there were so many little bouncing lambs experimenting with the 'springs in their legs' as they leapt up and down with obvious enjoyment.


linking with Astrid's Scavenger Photo Hunt - do pop over and see what the others have done. Right, I'm off out, despite the overnight snow, we're going to head for those hills again. I'll catch up with blogs later once I am home - enjoy the rest of your weekend xxxx

  1. Yes, it's wonderful to see all the lambs about now. They seem full of the joys of life. I love to see them leaping up and down and bouncing around, chasing all over the place. For some reason we call the leaping about pronking, which I think strickly applies to springbok and other antelopes! x

    1. You are correct that pronking is for antelope but it is perfect for them when they bounce around so much :) We also call it 'binking' and 'popcorning' - both terms that come from guinea pig and rabbit owners when they talk about their pets doing that sudden jump just for joy!

  2. It just wouldn't be spring without lambs or as is the case here more often baby goats. Cuteness overload for sure !. The photo is adorable I can just imagine them bopping up and down trying out their new legs. keep well Amanda x

    1. They are so cute - when they are brave enough to leave their mums and play in little schools - I love it !

  3. I do love seeing the spring lambs. We normally go away in March so get to see plenty but we’ve not really seen any this year at all. 😃

    1. I don't know if I am imagining it but there seems to be more lambs this spring than last year, and we were home then (the first lock down) and all we could do was walk locally as you know. But the fields seem to be full to bursting point with them!

  4. How precious those little lambs are! We have a lot of dairy and beef farms around here, but we don't seem sheep very often. Have a great week.

    1. We have mostly sheep around here as the land is 'hard' and dairy cows could not thrive. So any cows are beef but we have mostly sheep which are hardy and can cope with rough grasses and moorland fields :)

    1. They are so quick, some times I find I just end up watching them and not taking any pictures either!

  8. Those little lambs are so cute it makes me want one :) They are so white too, it looks like they've been washed in Persil :)

  9. Yes Lambs leaping around always remind me of pronking springbok. Pronking comes from the Afrikaans verb pronk, which means "show off" and they definitely make me think they are showing off and having such fun. Such a contrast from the staid sheep they will grow into.🧡 xx
