Pasture Happenings (Weekly Dose)

 

It has rained every day this week with a few thunderstorms thrown in here and there.  Bright side-everyone  has clean wool and we have plenty of grass. So much in fact that the sheep haven't been able to keep up with it and it  has seed headed out. As soon it dries up a little we will need to mow.  Perhaps, we need more sheep!



In the evenings...




 

 I have noticed that Mabel has been hanging out with Oni (horse)  I haven't quite figured out why she has ditched the flock for an equine pasture pal,  other than Oni provides her some shade while grazing.







Can we get any more crowded??


 






 
Later!









Thanks for stopping by the farm, I hope you all have a great weekend!!

  7. Beautiful sheep! I just had to mow our side pasture before I put the sheep over there. Then I'' mow where they are now. They can't eat it all fast enough. I was thinking the same thing, that I need more sheep too! I have 17 now. I hope I have a few more lambs in June. You have a beautiful farm, Sandra.

    1. Thanks Kris,
      There is always plenty in the Spring. It slows down in the summer months.

  8. Great photos. Whereabouts in Michigan are you? We have Merinos and Nubians and are near Jackson, MI.

    And after last year I'm definitely grateful for all the rain we've had recently here too.

    1. We are in Branch County. Coldwater area.
      I don't mind the rain, I just hope it stops long enough for the hay to get taken off the field!
      Thanks for visiting!
