Grass is gold

This year we we’re approached by a neighbor to the south who was interested in grazing our sheep through his beautiful pastures. When it comes to having more grass, you can never go wrong.

So we set out to organize a way for us to run the girls and lambs over to his place without having to take them up onto the road. Our neighbor directly to the south of us generously offered a strip at the top of his property to use as a lane for moving the sheep. This worked out perfectly.

Next we set up gates and ensured his fencing around the the pastures were adequate for the girls. All that was left to do was to release the sheep!

These lambs have settled in to the new pasture and really enjoy the slopes and obstacles.
