The Texel is a breed of domestic sheep originally from -surprise!- the island of Texel.
The white one to the right is a very typical Texel sheep, and No she’s not fat. She’s big boned and pregnant.

These are beautiful photographs Calee. I love the contrast of the sheep against the green pasture and the detail you caught in the sheep. Very peaceful scene too.

Tranquill scene with the sheep in the meadow. I had to look twice to see that the breed of sheep read Texel and not Texas. Where is th isle of Texel? I like the photos of the animals a lot. Nice shots, Calee.

Thanks Yvonne! The island is in the North West of The Netherlands, almost across from Norwich in England.

Interesting creatures set off nicely with the grass

Thanks Lyle! Not nearly as exotic as the animals you capture on camera (some I’ve never even heard of before!) but still nice animals I think

Absolutely and there’s something about recognizing and enjoying the beauty around us.

Beautiful shots, but what’s the story with the green devices? Fashion accessories? Tracking devices? Hearing devices? Mini-mp3 players?

Thanks Mike! Would be so much more fun if I could tell you they’re radio devices to keep in contact with other sheep around the island.. The truth is that these are ID tags, in case of diseases or similar, they’re able to trace all sheep, goats, cows.

These are some really fat and sassy sheep. They’re ready for a super bowl commercial!

Not fat!! H-e-a-l-t-h-y! Winter’s are cold on the island, best keep extra insulation…
February 7, 2013 at 4:22 PM
Oh ! Is that my excuse then? I do gain winter weight for certain as I spend so much time outdoors. Easier to lose weight in spring.
February 7, 2013 at 7:54 PM
I think it’s a perfect excuse, I’ve used it for many winters now..

You made my day with these beautiful sheep!

Thanks so much, Andelieya! Very kind.
Calee, these are beautiful pictures of healthy/happy looking sheep! They look like the before haircut picture of my now seal look-a-like pooch!

Living in the city I rarely if ever get to see sheep – they are beautiful animals that is for sure.
