Good Fences

Breeding groups are finally all set up, and we are depending on our good fences to keep the rams on their best behavior.  We still have some hoof trimming to accomplish with Aragorn's ladies but we've got the breeding harness on him in the meantime.
We were blessed with a gofer full of unsaleable pumpkins by our friends at Vested Heirs Farm.  They provide some bright spots in the somewhat dreary pasture, and the flock is definitely enjoying the late autumn treat.

  5. Very picturesque scene. That one poor sheep looks lonely all by itself. The pumpkins are fun, I had no idea sheep ate pumpkins.

    1. The 'lonely sheep' is hanging out by the fence near the ram on the other side, instead of with her own ram. Pumpkins are very good for sheep providing Vitamin A and acting as a natural wormer.
