|Happy sheep back on pasture after 3.5 months.|
Last time I moved them, back in November, I hoisted and carried them from the front pasture/hay lot to the dry lot. They were very heavy. This time, I had even farther to go, and bigger, more pregnant sheep.
The solution? Roll them.
|Getting the sheep in the cart was surprisingly easy.|
I coaxed the sheep into the cart I use to haul water for the pigs and cows. I took the big dog cage and tied it on with donkey's old rope. Then, I carefully avoided pot-holes. :)
After the harrowing journey back to the "back 40" (really the back 2.6, behind the creek), in which Pot Pie's leg fell through and got stuck once, I released Pot Pie and Meatloaf into their new pasture area.

|Thing #2 lured Pancake in with some fresh pulled grass.|

I also moved the solar charger, their water bucket, and their mineral bucket back on Saturday.
