Moving the sheep to find some grass

Our pasture is very sad, very dry.  Really not much there, so I have to take the sheep out to find some grass now, or leaves, or anything really.   When the governor announced that parks would be opening for livestock grazing my ears perked up.  That's how bad it is.  I probably will not have to do that, but it's something I keep in mind. 

Sprite bringing the sheep out of the "pasture".  Not much there. 

Putting sheep through the gate- just enough pressure so they are not rushed

Decker, the naughty sheep, makes a break for it and Sprite brings him back
Hello sheep

Taking them through the yard, and working on the drive

Sprite really wanted to go to the head and bring them back

My adorable hyena-dog

Sheep say "mmm, trees"

Sheep in their patch of weeds to eat

That'll do, good dog


  1. I love little Miss Sprite the Hyena dog! It looks like she had an excellent time working with you. That big happy smile at the end says it all!

  2. I would love to watch you and Sprite working with the sheep; watching them be kept together and moved. Almost like a dance; a ballet.
