We continue to bring the ewes home each night although we don’t really need to now that there are no lambs at foot. The night penning is good for the pups though and the lambs bed down right next door to the ewes so they are close by as well. The pups are not yet traveling out with the flock on their own initiative, so by day they hang out with Tex and Zeus, and at night they join the flock and the other three adults.
The day to day pace is settling down a tad or it feels like it anyway; September does that. The colder nights remind us that is we’re into the last month before we start to freeze up.
This photo was taken a few days prior to weaning lambs. The flock is settling in the night pen. I love how the ewes and lambs join up each night to sleep next to each other. The dogs have just eaten and that's Oakley already sound asleep.
