|Sprite, back when we had green stuff on the ground|
Today she worked on driving the sheep to different parts of the pen in all directions. First I laid down a line of hay, then had her push them down the line of and then across the pen. It gives her the chance to feel different pressure points than the sheep normally have. We had one hungry wether that was constantly trying to double back to the hay and the ram leading the rest of the sheep the other direction.
I'm hoping to be getting out in to the big field soon, but it's been snowy and icy again. The barn is a complete mess with water coming in and turning to ice, so all the ewes and lambs are outside now. I spend a couple hours last night chopping ice and trying to get the drainage off the barn roof fixed. It might have helped a little, but it's not completely better. The small pen is still pretty good footing because we have been trampling it down a lot and it didn't ice over.
