Colours and lambs

It's black and white for this week's True Colours Thursday.
I didn't have to look far for the first one!

Gypsy, Pansy and Teasel - the black and white girls

The black and white crossword in our daily paper


My lovely Beswick black and white pony. I've had it at least 35 years and it has come through many house moves without even a chip


My camera, mainly black but with a little bit of white



*********************************



One of my work colleagues has a small flock of pedigree Blue-faced Leicester sheep and they are in the middle of lambing just now. I paid them a visit, hoping to get some nice spring-lambs-in-the-sunshine photos but, although the lambs co-operated, the weather did not! I'll have to go again.



This little chap was just 3 days old. He has ears to rival the papillons'.


Rachel with two of the mums. They're a very friendly breed.......


.........with a distinctive Roman nose, large blue ears and a very curly fleece.



He was very chatty


If you look closely you'll see that he's been caught mid pee here! It went on for ages so I had no problems getting a still shot.

They look as amusing as goat kids.
Nice camera - I am using an EOS 3000 for film now and again. Just to keep my Caonon connection going.

The paps are sitting so well for their photo and how cute! I just love the lambs and just in time for Easter!

Your b&w shots are great! Love the horse - I think I used to have one when I was a kid probably more than 40 yrs ago! Memories of Sam's mum! But what we loved big-time were the sheep and lambie photos - how cute they are! Lovely to look at this morning with my mom and her coffee! Thanks!
xo hugs,

The Paps were MADE for this theme! I love the lamb pics, too. It's been awhile (years) since I've seen a baby farm animal. Thanks for making my day.

Your lamb photos are very good, liked the one baaing best. I'll say the same as Tom, why hav'n't you done the crossword?

Nala sent me over to see you. My obedience teacher has a doggie like you. I am a little bit afraid of him, but you guys look friendly enought.
