These birds are in grub/bug heaven! It’s rained a bit over the last few days and they are taking full advantage of it, and finding all the creepy crawlers.
I don’t know why, but seeing them in huge numbers like this always sort of creeps me out 😂 I don’t have any explanation for it - I just find it creepy! LOL!
The kids love spooking them and watching them fly off and then return. If Ember were to get out with all of them close by she would have a field day trying to chase and catch them! 😬 She’s never gotten a squirrel or bird, and hopefully she won’t.
I really wanted to get a picture of the white ewe furthest to the right (between the two dark ones) because she had a lion-like mane of snow around her face from digging for grass. If you expand the photo, you can kind of see it. It was so cute. 🦁 However, our ram was totally staring us down and bleating to us as a warning to stay away. He has not been into having any visitors close to his ladies during this breeding season. I actually do not go out to the pasture right now without my dog and a large stick in my hand. There is no messing around with this guy. He means business...and his business is being sole king of his flock and sire to all their offspring! Gotta give him an “A” for effort. #breedingseason#ram#ramlife#aforeffort#hemeansbusiness#flock#snow#wintergrazing#pastureraised#pasturemanagement#sustainability#sustainablefarming#farmlife#backonthefarm

#Israel 's Great #Misery#Jeremiah 7:1
Woe is me!
For I am like one gathering summer fruit
at the gleaning of the vineyard;
there is no cluster to eat,
no early fig that I crave.
2 The godly man has perished from the earth;
there is no one #upright among men.
They all lie in wait for blood;
they hunt each other with a net.
3 Both hands are skilled at evil;
the prince and the judge demand a #bribe ;
when the powerful utters his evil desire,
they all #conspire together.
4 The best of them is like a brier;
the most upright is sharper then a hedge of thorns.
The day you post your #watchmen , your punishment will come;
then their #confusion will arise.
5 Do not rely on a friend;
do not trust in a companion.
Seal the doors of your mouth
from her who lies in your arms.
6 For a son dishonors his father,
a daughter rises against her mother,
and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law;
a man’s enemies are the members of his own household.
Israel Looks to the LORD
7 But as for me, I will look to the LORD;
I will wait for the God of my #salvation .
My God will #hear me.
8 Do not #gloat over me, my enemy!
Though I have #fallen , I will #arise ;
though I sit in #darkness ,
the LORD will be my light.
9 Because I have sinned against Him,
I must endure the rage of the LORD,
until He argues my case
and executes justice for me.
He will bring me into the #light ;
I will see His #righteousness .
10 Then my enemy will see
and will be covered with shame—
#she who said to me,
“Where is the LORD your God?”
My eyes will see her;
at that time she will be #trampled
like #mud in the #streets .
11 The day for rebuilding your walls will come—
the day for extending your boundary.
12 On that day they will come to you
from #Assyria and the cities of Egypt,
even from #Egypt to the #Euphrates
and from sea to sea and mountain to mountain.
13 Then the earth will become #desolate because of its inhabitants,
as the result of their deeds.
God's Compassion on Israel
14 #Shepherd with Your #staff Your people,
the #flock of Your #inheritance .
They live alone in a woodland,
surrounded by pastures.
Let them graze in #Bashan and #Gilead ,
as in the days of old. ...
