It's that season of the year again when lambs are beginning to appear. Just a day before this photograph was taken, I happened to run into one of the persons responsible for their care who was taking the newest addition to Colonial Williamsburg's flock, born literally moments before, with its mother to "the barn" where both were to be checked by a veterinarian before being returned to pasture. 

The sheep here, however, aren't just for show. Their wool is used for spinning locally. Also, unlike on some farms, these sheep are not destined for mutton. They are, instead, "retired" to local farmers who, I'm told, kindly look after them in their dotage.
