Sheep SeptOct 17 Cover Photo

“Sheep Love Halloween,” by Nicole Marquette of North Fork Farm in Waverly, Minnesota.

Where has the summer gone?! Pumpkins are ready, much to the delight of the flocks, as noted by our First Place winner, Nicole Marquette, who feeds them to her Corriedales and natural colored sheep. Her photo is all at once beautiful, instructive, humorous and seasonal. She added, “The kids love it when we put feed in our pumpkins after Halloween.”
