Bighorn Sheep


2020 brings the Bighorns...

 to the property for the first time this year.

I've been watching this battle worn Ram for years.

He has an old scar on his face that I recognize.

He was here with a large herd of Rams and little ones.

Those horns are massive as is he...

The little ones...

are so cute...

with their tiny, tiny horns.

Striking a beautiful pose to end my post...

Thinking of my friends in  Australia...
lives lost...
millions of wildlife lost...
property lost...
keep Australia in your prayers.


  1. How fortunate you are Nancy--great photos of such awesome creatures!

  2. You always capture the greatest beauty!

    1. Thank you so much! I appreciate you taking the time to comment.

  3. What fun to see the old and the new of these critters.

  4. Love so much seeing your quilts and wildlife pictures. Australia is definitely in my prayers! love

  5. Thank you Nancy, for your caring thoughts for Australia. Although I am safe, about 4-6 hours from the fires in Victoria, the devastation we have seen on news coverage & social media has been horrific. Communities, farming, houses and loss of lives has been so upsetting. Also so very saddened & concerned for the loss of our forests, birds and wildlife.

  6. Australia is on my mind constantly. I cannot even bear to watch the news anymore, have not been able to do that for weeks.
    Your pictures are beautiful,how wonderful that you recognize some of the animals.

  7. Breathtaking photos. And yes, we must all keep Australia in our thoughts and prayers. My group is looking into the best way we can help. We will decide at the next meeting. Thanks for sharing these wonderful photos.

  8. Love that you share your wildlife photos with us. There is a small herd of similar Big Horn Mountain Sheep, that were released along the Oregon side of the Columbia River, in the steep desert area a few years ago and I always crane my neck to see them when hubby drives us through the area. You get much better photos than I could ever get. Thank you.

  9. So love when you share your wildlife pictures. I'm thrilled with birds, geese and an occasional deer. Can't imagine looking out your window and viewing all that you do! Thanks for sharing.

  10. Have been missing new photos....I love your shots. Thanks for posting. how's the quilting coming? I'm looking forward to your next project. Been praying for Australia and the devastation and resulting wisdom to make changes.
