Sheep Out


We let the sheep out this morning into the pasture. Jeepers is definately the leader, she is the one on the left.


Kia is immediately behind Jeepers, she is the one with the black and white face.


Getting them back into the barn tonight night was a challenge. Instead of Sara herding them they FOLLOWED her around, completely unnerving her. Without Sara’s help we had to round them up slowly and direct them into the barn. They were rewarded with fresh hay in a blue bin. Hopefully they will recognize the bin and associate it with food in the future so as to make this an easier process. We can’t leave them out due to predators.

The sheep have a Icelandic look to them, and Soay as well.

  3. I was just reading your posts about sheep since my husband and I are looking into purchasing a few. We went to a farm yesterday where she is raising Icelandic Sheep. http://keepingthefarm.blogspot.com/We are researching different breeds trying to find the best match for us. What breed of sheep are you raising, and are they enjoyable? Thanks! 🙂
