A small flock of Merino sheep at Jondaryan Woolshed. These were waiting to participate (somewhat unwillingly) in the sheep dog trials.

    beautiful capture!!

    We didn't touch these particular ones, but we did pat another one elsewhere on the property. These guys didn't seem to want anything to do with humans, maybe they were suffering stage-fright ;)

    Oh, and yes, they are very soft, if somewhat greasy (lanolin).

    Thanks flikr and Susan.

    They were all trying to get away from the farmhands (off shot to the right) who were separating some out for the next round of dog trials.
