The Security of the Sheep Fold

spring in the garden 319

Our rustic garden shed was on the farm property when we restored our barn home.  We believe it was a sheep shed.  Now it houses equipment and tools but I like to think of sheep being herded inside for protection after a day in the open pasture.

Sheep going into shed

How cute is this!  The shed will keep them warm and safe from marauders.  I think I am a sheep at heart.  Give me a good shepherd and I am happy!

  1. There is a farm on my way to work, which keeps sheep, and they have a couple different pastures for their sheep family. As of last week, they are in the pasture closest to the road, and all the little lambs are so excited to be free! They gallop around and bey with their little mouths as I drive by and I swear that they are, smiling. I want one. Just one.
