What we saw today.

I had to stop the car as the DP had seen something strange.

We drive past this field of ordinary sheep every day.  Today there is this!

Then we spotted this.  I knew there were Dutch Rabbits around as I had seen others photos.  But a first for me.  And where on earth from?  I had this breed as a child, in a hutch.  Pet rabbits.  Not out in the wild!

Prom was a bit boring after that.  More people....

But I got my exercise.  A nice chat with a young man I usually chat to.

Back home we have the excitement of Blue Tits nesting in one of our boxes.

Down the Shedudio.  Still not tidied and sorted.  But heres a crow.

Keep watching.  You never know what you will see!

What you saw was a Jacob's sheep. They're a very ancient breed, goes back to the Middle East, first documented in England around 1600. They're a very tough, low-maintenance sheep.

My word what a handsome Jacob's sheep!

Lovely photographs of the Blue Tit. I caught a fleeting glimpse of one in my garden today. In fact, I've noticed a few more birds than usual.
I see the beautiful gorse is in flower. X

Love your painting of the crow. You are such a good artist! I have never seen an animal like the sheep (ram?) with the big horns sticking straight up. And, of course, you gotta love the cute little bunny. You have such interesting photos to share! Thanks so much!

Indeed you never know what is around the next corner. Amazing to see such a different breed to the normal sheep seen and a joy to see the rabbit.

We had Jacob sheep for a while - and they kept escaping, ours only 2 horns - handy to grab when trying to catch them.

The prom looks so quiet and the sea as beautiful as always
