AM Trek Out to Graze

Heading out to graze; being led by PJ, the llama.


The guardian dogs fall into the procession too. 


With the dogs and sheep all in one place, the morning routine is a fairly simple one.  We feed the guardian dogs and open the gate to let the ewes head to pasture.  The only work is peeling some of the ewes away from the fence line that is shared with the ram paddock, to make sure they leave with the rest of the flock (much to the rams dismay).  Every evening the stock dogs work to bring the sheep in, gathering any out lying animals and then driving the flock to the night pen.

    1. She does play a small role but in the large pasture spaces she is more of a tag along member of the flock than a guardian.
