feeding hay in the dry land..Mint and #256
Our ewes are about 85% fine wool sheep( a cross of Rambouillet and Targhee with a slash of Finn) , but we still have a few Coopworth and Cheviots. We sell our wool to Columbia scouring which is Pendleton wool http://www.pendleton-usa.com/ They make men’s and women’s dress shirts from our wool.
Last week 256 decided the whole stay off the top of the hill until the dog moves program was not working for her. She wanted her hay, and she wasn’t going to wait for some collie to tell he when she could eat.
Today I had a camera with me and I got a picture of 256 and Mint having a lil “talk.” No biting was necessary but I think Mint’s ear set says “ do you remember me dear?” I guess 256 did as she did not charge the dog today. Note the livestock guard dog peaking over the sheep to see if there are any fireworks :)
