It's lambing season. Did you know that lambs can jump really high
? Ever seen a lambpede
The black lamb in this video
is named Mistral, and yes, that's a sweater she's wearing. Mistral had a tough first few days
and needed the extra warmth until she got her strength up. In the lambpede video above, you can see her at the back of the pack, just learning to flock.
More pictures and plenty of posts about lambing season on the SheepGal
blog. For more leaping sheep, see Foxfire Fiber's YouTube channel
. The sheep at Foxfire are Cormo, specially crossbred to produce a super fine, soft wool for handspinning. The Flickr set above is of another "spinner's flock" in the UK; they're mostly Ryeland sheep, a rare breed whose wool is known for being extra springy and resilient.
