SATURDAY CRITTERS - Castle Coole (part 3)

This is my final post from Castle Coole and these shots are of the animals and birds I saw as I walked around the lake.  I am linking this post with Eileen’s meme, SATURDAY  CRITTERS and I think I have said enough in the previous 2 posts so that you can put this post into slide mode, sit back and enjoy the walk with me.













This tree is where I saw the sheep with her lamb (below)


 
 I hope you enjoyed this magnificent property at Castle Coole and perhaps someday I will be able to take a few photographs of the inside of the house for you to see.

Thank you for visiting.

Many thanks for comments you left on any of my posts. 

 Eileen has kindly said she will link my post in this weekend as I am away to my old caravan (without internet) so will catch up on your posts from Weekend Reflections and Saturday Critters when I come back.

  4. Difficult to pick a favorite shot. Although I am partial to the little lambs. Are you saying that the sheep and lamb actually clouded up into the tree? My oh my!

  13. Enjoyed looking at the lamb and the sheep.
    I didn't know that sheep could be that big.
    I reckon they look because they are full coated.
    My bobtail would enjoy getting to know them.
    Peace :)

  15. Hi Margaret
    Lovely photos all of them. I especially love the lambs with the gorgeous black knees and faces and the lamb in the grasses with the huge pink ears is so adorable.
    Enjoy your weekend without internet :)

  28. I love the lamps and sheep. That tree is awesome. I recently saw some cows like the ones in the top shot when visiting Tennessee. They are not common around here.
