Jacob Lamb


This photo was taken at my friend JP's farm in Durham Township. JP raises Jacob sheep, a rare breed in the United States. There are about a dozen lambs at JP's farm right now and they're almost unbearably cute. You can read more about the Jacob breed at the Jacob Sheep Breeder's Association site.

Camera settings and post-processing: Shot with the Canon EOS 5D and the Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS lens at 170mm, ISO 400, f/3.2, shutter 1/1600s. Curves adjustments, color balancing, slight crop.

Thank you for visiting Durham Township!

Hello Kathleen,
I'm from germany and this girl looks like me. I was very surprised to see that picture!!! And very unusual too was, that this girl has a sheep in her arms. I love sheeps! I want to send you a picture from me. Than you can see the similarity.
I looked for this girl in facebook, because I'm very interested, if this girl looks like me in real live!? Can you help me to find this girl?
Greetings from Krefeld,
Saskia Hein
