Settling In



The lambs are doing well in their new pasture.  Only one breakout - the first night - when they went either through or over a portion of the fence.  A double fence has been put in that corner now.  They have quieted down and are falling into the morning and evening routine of coming for a little corn and oats and the counting of the lambs.  Only one moment of panic so far when 14 of them hid in the shelter at the bottom of the hill; which, of course, was the last place we looked for them.  We will bring them back to the barn on Saturday to do a FAMACHA check and check their condition.
















The ewes have also settled down and are enjoying their (well deserved) rest and relaxation in the back pasture.
