This really amazes me, that the sheep have no fear of a running tractor. They wouldn’t budge. Normally our critters run when large machinery, especially loud large machinery at that, approaches. I had to laugh. It was actually quite cute. Looked like the boys were hitching a ride on the tractor. I wish I had remembered the camera.
I grabbed a small can of grain and bribed the boys into their feed area so Jim could move on down to the bottom field without fear of the sheep getting in the way, following behind or being hurt.
While the guys were busy outside I made a batch of vanilla yogurt and a batch of cracked pepper with green olive Chevre. Had hoped to start some feta when the phone began to ring with news of customers wanting to come by to pick up their weekly supply of eggs and goat milk. Hopefully today will have time for the feta.
Today is reworking and expanding the pigpen while the ground is moist from the rain, easier to put in T posts. Weather permitting the guys also hope to set-up the shearing area for Wednesday morning.
I definitely will have the camera ready for shearing time.
Pleased to report that the bush hogging is complete. The better half being the nice guy that he is, even bush hogged the neighbors few acres while he was at it.
Hope everyone has a great day!
