Out to Pasture…

We worked sheep this weekend…oiy!  It’s a good thing this guy really loves me.  He ended up trimming over 400 sheep feet, horns rammed into his shin, stabbed by needles…several times.  Then we had to do give supplemental BoSe and Thiamine to the lambs.  He even sheared poor Reykur, who missed the spring shearing and was in bad need of a trim.  Love this guy I tell ya!!

There is just something about sheep, on new pasture, hungrily munching away that makes me feel all warm inside!IMG_6324
