It’s only early March and no doubt more flakes will fly and cold will return but in the meantime grass long buried is exposed and a nice meal to be had.
Heading our way
While the big guys with the full curls were somewhere up in the hills above these two teenage Bighorn Sheep descended the hills, made their way through the sage brush, and then headed our direction across the grasslands below. A bit wary, yet curious, they confidently approached little by little.
They had a bit of gleam in their eyes and a look that somehow said they might be looking for trouble.
A couple teenagers with time on their hands and on the prowl.
As they inched by us we each kept our distance and you could certainly see the different personalities reflected in the way they looked us over. The first gave us a head on glance and stood for awhile the second a sideways looks as he steadily marched on through.
The prior evening was snowy and cold, yet, as so often happens in March these Bighorn Sheep arose to find a sunny sky. So today they basked in the warmth and let out a big collective ahhhh!
And the Pronghorn did the same.
Three big guys enjoying the golden grass and just laying low.
Maybe that is a cue for the weekend just lay low and kick back or, better yet, get outside a bit then kick back.
Have a wonderful weekend however you choose to spend it.
Hitting that awkward teenage stage even happens to Bighorn Sheep.
