This afternoon I drove the back way home to check on the sheep, which I hadn't seen in a week or so. I'm happy to report they're getting a small amount of wool back after their recent shearing, and they look a little less naked and vulnerable to the icy winds that whip around their pasture. I sat in my warm car on the edge of the road and drew as fast as I could since they moved constantly. At one point they all took off running like a big deal was happening, and they vanished down the back side of a hill. I moved the car to catch up with them and to see what was luring them to the new spot. I couldn't see anything at all different about the new spot, but they apparently could!
