The ducks were so busy exploring new puddles that I couldn't get a good picture. They were all bathing, dabbling & generally having a big time while the chickens simply tried to get a drink. This was the calmest duck I could find.
While Gwen, one of the Anatolian Shepherds, was keeping watch over her pasture from the tractor shed. The Shetland in the background was passing time leaning up against Al's shearing board which won't get much action now until spring time.
And this little Shetland is doing her usual "own thing". She grazes at the far end of a pasture, ignoring the fact that all the other sheep had already run up the hill on the chance that I was bringing them a treat.
And here's to a quiet new year - at least so far, so good!
