I have not posted in a while for lack of my laptop . It just refuses to connect to the internet. I am working on this from my smart phone. Wish me luck. We have spent the entire weekend gathering and separating sheep. We spent Friday night separating the sheep on our ranch into four groups. (Pictures later to come) . Pour Daniel is beat up from our flock. They jumped into him ,over him ,under him and around him. Hair Sheep spring like deer when cornered. We have our American black belly Barbado ewes and thier ram. The painted deserts ewes and thier ram and the black Hawaiian ewes and thier ram. Then we have the bachlor herd. They were not separated before because of the need for a herding pin and fencing. We worked on our herd for hours. Now we have create little family groups that will be easier to care for. Saturday we spent getting supplies for more fencing and feed for the sheep, deer and the cats . Then Sunday we drove to Temple to help a friend gather then transport several rams to Auction. We brought home four more males to grow for about a year and a half.
Matt and Daniel ( these rams had thier breaks on the whole time) muscles were required for this job.
