Out to pasture

The flocks were reunited this week and are out to pasture. We let the mothers wean the lambs naturally; less stressful all the way around and quieter too! With all the rain we have had this month the grass is growing faster than they can eat it. By August I’ll be bemoaning how slowly it is recovering, but for now the sheep have full bellies! For the past few weeks they had pretty much eaten their spring pastures down to a couple of inches and there was ALOT of baaaing going on for new pastures, it was relentless at times! Sheep are definitely food driven.
