Just as the spring like weather had teased us with ideas of green grass and short sleeves, cold and bitter winds hustled in to remind us what February was all about. Obviously it was a perfect time to go visit the farm and romp around outside!  Admittedly, we wussed out as nothing we packed was enough to withstand the biting wind.  Not my best showing, but we hung out long enough to say Hi! the to the animals, and (human) friends!

Hi. What are you doing?

Working Sheep

21 Sep

A couple times a season there is a need to check your animals individually  and hands on. Also in a setting where you can do it safely for both person and sheep.  Hence working the sheep in an organized sorting system to track any changes in individuals.
