In the evening, the sheep and lambs need to be put back into the barnyard to protect them from the coyotes. They are safer close to the barns. These are some photos I took of them returning to the barns. Julia was away visiting her grandma so I took the opportunity to help Kate and Mark "put the sheep up." It was a beautiful evening at dusk after a nice warm day. It was nice to see that Kate is really improving her herding skills. The best thing is the sheep react and move for her. By the end of this coming summer, she will be a real pro.
It won't be long until the grass greens up and the leaves come out on the trees. The sheep and lambs will be split up into different groups and go out to graze in various pastures near and far. Another growing season begins. The portable fencing will be moved and moved and moved. Mark will begin haying and harvesting and farming continues for another year.
Enjoy the photos.
