Pasture Walk


This morning was perfect outside weather so I went on a pasture walk. The Tunis greeted me when I made my way out to where the sheep were spending their morning. Have I mentioned how much I like these girls? The Border Leicesters act like I am invading their space, no welcome wagon from that group!

I love watching the ewes grazing and the lambs playing. I did manage to get a few pictures of lambs. but it is not easy since they do not spend much time standing still.  I didn't get any pictures of the goats, they were off browsing in another part of the pasture. I have to say I am surprised that they have not had their kids yet. They waddle around and look like they could kid  any day but I have been thinking that for weeks.

I did make a mental list of what needs to be done while I was out looking around.
-A small tree is down on the fence.
-Brush needs cut back.
-Cross sections of fencing need put up so we can do rotational grazing this summer.
-We need to rid our pastures of Thistle and Burdock (not a friend to wool) .

I will have to add it to the master list of things to do this Spring. It amazes me how fast the work adds up. Anyone else have an ever growing list of things to do this Spring?

These girls didn't  mind a visit!

  1. Oh I loved the walk with you and really enjoyed meeting the girls:) B

  2. Your sheep are beautiful. And yes, I have a LONG list of things that need to be done. But it's just me so I have to do what I can when I can. Sheep shearing tomorrow, I hope, so I need to make a little catch pen. It's supposed to be really nice and sunny the next few days.

    1. Kris,
      Enjoy the nice weather and good luck with shearing :)
