An older couple has been walking their dog by our house the past few weeks. On Christmas Day, they said hello. I said hi back. A few days ago, they stopped at the top of the driveway while I was feeding the sheep corn by hand. They (the humans) said, nice sheep.
We think so, too.
A gentleman stopped by yesterday when Ron was cleaning out the chicken coop–stinky farm work!–and I was at work. He was taking some photographs from the road and came down our driveway trying to find a human.
He told Ron that he was a photographer (and also a neighbor) and has taken some photos of our buildings and the landscape. He asked if he could take pictures of our sheep. Ron said sure, anytime.
We’re not entirely sure if the man is part of the dog walking couple. For some reason, I feel like he is.
Ron said that he got some photos of the sheep when they “have halos around them.” I didn’t know what this meant. Ron said that if the sheep are back lit with rising or setting sun, the light comes through their wool–but not their bodies obviously. So it looks like they have “halos” around them.
Love it. Can’t wait to see it.
I’d also love to see the pictures the photographer takes. Maybe our sheep will become Baa-llywood stars (ha ha).
