Shepherd sketches on a Sunday
Wow what a week it has been. Last Sunday night two lambs were born and then a couple of days after that another one came (thankful it was not another set of twins). The problem with these events is that now that winter has come, it seems to want to make up for all the lost time and the temperature is just dropping and dropping. Now according to the internet grown sheep with their wool can survive up to -40C but lambs get into problems below -10C. Cool you say insulate the barn, but here's the hitch, a barn has to be well ventilated, if not the sheep might get pneumonia and other nasty ailments. As it is expected to be -30C sometime next week, the barn will drop to -20 or so, I will be heading to Riga to search for a heating lamp or I guess we will have to bring the mama's and babas inside the basement - which will not be as easy as it sound LOL (hysterically)
In the meantime the night sky is phenominal and the sunrises are spectacular.
So here is a little sheep oriented sketch for Sunday Sketches.
