Let Them Eat Grass!

It's been a late, cold, wet spring. The grass has not grown as quickly as we might have wanted. But finally, last week, we felt like there was enough in certain parts of the pasture system that we could let the sheep out.

First, we had to secure the fence. When that was done, it was time to let the sheep out.

Stand back so you don't get run over!

See this little guy looking down? It's almost like he doesn't quite know what to do with the grass...

Eventually, they all figure it out.

Letting them out on pasture saves money, as we're not feeding hay. It saves on work, as we don't have to throw hay (though we do have to keep working on fencing). And the sheep are oh so much happier outside. Let them eat grass!


  1. You're right - he does look like he hasn't a clue what the green stuff is!

  2. Real animals...may I live vicariously through you? I would be happy with just a few chickens even.
