It's weaning season all over again. Sigh.
With being gone last weekend (post coming) and wanting to make chores as trouble-free for the person doing them, I decided to do another sheep shuffle. That included putting Braveheart (and Browning) in with Braveheart's two "intendeds" for this year, Inky and Brava. Everyone had to stay in the fold in their respective pens over the weekend since the sheep are not about to follow a stranger in and out morning and evening, and I don't like to leave the sheep out all day when no one is around anyway. So this morning the three groups - Dinah and Blackberry, who have been together for awhile now; Bronwen and Bramble, who are not getting bred this fall; and Braveheart, Browning, Inky and Brava - were put out into their separate lots for the first time. Since Braveheart's group is the biggest, I put them into the biggest lot, and put Bramble and Bronwen into what had been Braveheart's and Browning's smaller lot (Dinah and Blackberry went in the same lot they've been occupying during the day).
After checking out the food and water in their new day pen, Bramble went from hereto here.I did NOT think she could still fit through those bars! Soon Bronwen followed, so I had to lock both of them up in the sheep fold. (If they can get OUT of their lot, they can get IN with Blackberry, their brother!)Yes, Bramble is standing in the feeder.They have been yelling their fool heads off ever since. I can't wait until the end of November.
That's it for now at . . .
