Christmas Family Foto

So here you go, a 'family' portrait.  I had wanted to get a sheep and the cats in as well, but besides dealing with the wind and the rain showers, adding the cats was just more than we could handle this morning.  I had one sheep all dressed and ready to go, I figured she was tame enough to eat out of a bucket and participate.  I had her tied to the fence, but not well enough.  The other two sheep got agitated.  Luna kept interferring, and then we had two sheep running from the other sheep who was wearing a halter and a red scarf and dragging a lead rope.  So there is me with a chicken in one arm, trying to drag a reluctant sheep with the other, back into the picture zone.  Wasn't going to happen.  Larry looks like he had a rough night, David is dealing with a painful swollen jaw after a wisdom tooth extraction, I was flustered by this point, Luna didn't know which animal to focus on....the chicken I was holding, Pride on the other side of the fence, or the sheep that were really wanting to get as far away as possible.  You can just see my token sheep in the bottom right of the picture.  So what you see here is the picture with the least amount of participants looking 'weird':)  Oh yeah, and forgot to focus the camera before starting the timer.
Hope you all had a good Christmas, your roast 'beast' was moist and tasty, and you enjoyed your time with family.
Merry Christmas!

    Happy Holidays!

  3. Awesome family photo, and NONE of them ever go smoothly. It's a quick freez-frame of a frantic life, but it's worth it.

  4. Well done! Getting everyone to cooperate is difficult sometimes:)
