Shy Ladies

These ladies got a little camera shy when I was lurking about near their field, while a Tup was servicing them. I sound like a weirdo! Haha 🀣

  • A Tup is a un-castrated male sheep – a Ram.

Shortly after their encounter with me, they trotted off out of sight with the Ram to another field for more fun 😳

  • The red markings on the sheep are so that the farmer can identify his flock from others in the area.
  • You might also notice that the Ram is wearing a harness. The harness carries a dye which rubs onto the rear end of the sheep, so that the farmer knows which Ewes have been mated with.

I think I could sing and shear a few sheep at the same time.

  1. I zoomed in on the second picture to check out the harness on the Tup. The first thing I noticed was the definite smile on the ladies face following him πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚β€οΈπŸ˜‚.
    Pretty nice curly horns on that fellow
