We sorted out the next batch of butcher sheep and for the first time ever they have the entire front pear orchard pasture to graze in. There are cockleburrs so we didn’t want to let the main flock out there but these sheep are going to slaughter in a couple of weeks so the wool doesn’t really matter. We still lock them up at night as the area is big and with only Kimball to patrol it we wanted to be sure they were ok. It is nice to see sheep in the whole field though.
