Evening in the pastures
Final check of the day today was beautiful, with stormy skies and a breeze. The sheep and their burros were down by the river, munching on greasewood and bluegrass. Never got a photo of the guard dogs, since they were getting fed at camp nearby.
On our way out of the pasture, flushed two red-tailed hawks from their nesting tree, drove by the female kestrel that hangs out on the fence, and saw a prairie falcon hanging out near where I saw a brood of young sage grouse having a dust bath yesterday.
When we pulled into our driveway, a couple of the rams were posing, and I couldn't resist. Handsome boys they are.
