SHEEP AT MOUNT VERNON


I have shared many posts on our visit to Mount Vernon, George Washington's home located in Virginia.  Today I am sharing the website where you can find information on the animals kept there.  You can click on this link.  The page also includes the sheep.




























I am sharing with the following memes, with my thanks to Theresa, Eileen and Misty for hosting.  If you wanted to visit other participants or to join in, you can click on the name of each meme.

  8. Some of those sheep appear to be in need of a good shearing. I hope the crew at MV does this regularly. I assume you heard about the poor sheep in NZ who hadn't been sheared in years and was suffering horribly when they found him. Apparently, that wool keeps growing and growing and growing and can eventually kill the animal.

  10. I imagine they attract quite a bit of attention. What a difference in size between the adults and the young ones.

  14. I had no idea about the animals there. Are these all sheep? Even the ones with the horns? (Country girl I am definitely not!).... the black lamb is cute.

I thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading them very much and always try to return a visit. As I do monitor comments it may take a while for them to appear, even quite late depending on what is going on and how much time I am able to spend on the computer.

Also, there are times when I delete by mistake, so if something you have written to me is gone, it's usually because my fingers have pushed the wrong button!
