Amanda and I spent the weekend exploring the Hudson Valley. On our way back today we stopped at the Sawkill Farm store. I had my camera gear in tow and they graciously allowed me to take some photos of their sheep. It was a drizzly day, but I had a wonderful time. The sheep have so much character and personality!
