More This and That
My son in law Brannon has a friend going through a divorce. The friend would be leaving the home and couldn't take his sheep so was looking for a good home for them. Yes, we brought them home with us from the Christmas weekend. Poor sheep had to ride 6 hours in the back of our pickup. It has a camper shell so they stayed warm and dry, just a long strange ride for them. When we got home Molly got loose before we got her to the pen and has been hiding in the woods until today. This morning she came in the backyard and followed me to the pen. I opened the pen and she followed me in. Molly spent the day in the pen with Charlie and Missy. When the sun started going down she went under the fence and went back to the woods. I think she will do this for a couple of days till she gets use to us and the pen. At least she is spending her days with us now. They are soay sheep and don't get very big. You don't shear them either. They shed their wool in the spring. Never thought I would have sheep but they are actually very sweet.We now have the new dog pen finished. They are loving it. And we moved some of the chickens into 3 of the new chicken pens. They are having a ball scratching around in a new area. We are going to tear down the old big chicken pen and build more of the smaller so we can separate breeds, hens sitting, sick, etc.
