Mother and Daughter

A mother ewe and one of her offspring taking a rest from the daily grind of chewing grass and producing meat & wool. The lamb is wearing its 'new born jacket' which Lois likes to put on them when they are born but they eventually get all tattered and fall off. It used to be a joke that NZ had 70,000,000 sheep and only 3,500,000 people, nowadays there are less sheep 29,000,00 and more people 4,500,000! An amusing statistic maybe.

Time to shoot a few snaps but still - Rather short of time at present with study and work but having a look at everyone's splendid images when I can.
