Have been seeing some spring lambs as I drive through the country roads. I love the sound they make. Reminds me of the time I spent on a sheep farm in New Zealand. Lambs arrived every day (although in winter, rather than in spring). After just a few weeks, they were leaping and bucking around in the fields. Sitting on a fence and watching them was truly one of the loveliest experiences I've had. I watched as very young animals pushed their little bodies to the limit running, jumping and racing around in little groups. Pure joy, for them and for me.
