We’ve had some problems with the sheep sweep over the years. The sheep have worn a path down the middle and the panels have sunk into the ground. This year we decided to put some gravel down on top of weed block and then use old mine belt to make a more durable surface.

Adding gravel to the sweep area.

More Gravel

We also got the ewes out on some pasture. We still have to do their spring dewormer but this pasture can be grazed before that. The main lambing pastures in the orchard are still too short with not enough grass for the sheep to go there so we started them in the front.

Lots of Happy Sheep!
