I started night penning the flock the other night and will continue to do so for awhile. I think the ewes are being bothered, plus it’s a good opportunity for the guardian pups to spend the night with the flock while somewhere near home. It also means some good stock dog work every night.
|In for the night|
Doing an hour long activity with the sheep and stock dogs brings back the work and feel of the place. We have been on a roller coaster of busy this last month. I’ve been here the whole time yet it feels like I’ve lost touch with the place. I know the sheep are still grazing where they’re supposed to be because I check them twice each day but otherwise…?
|Which way to go; noticing the rams are that way|
