New Barn Update

All the major work is done – stained and sealed, dirt re-distributed around foundation and trash hauled away. Just waiting for electrical connection.

My fence people got more posts in…

…then finished stringing the wire and got the gates in. I thought maybe the sheep would be confused about how to get into another barnyard but it didn’t seem to bother them.

The interior needs straw and the feeders moved in.

The sheep are figuring out where they want to hang out in the re-designed area. In their old spot under the trees…

…or taking advantage of the shade the new barn provides.

Nellie, as usual, is thinking deep thoughts.

"I know there is a way to get through this gate - I just need more time to figure it out."

“I know there is a way to get through this gate – I just need more time to figure it out.”

It sure adds a different look to the pasture!

  1. What a beautiful new red barn to complement your beautiful woolies!

  2. Nellie is adopting the low-energy strategy: she knows, in the way a sheep is programmed to know, that every gate has its moment of weakness, and when it does she’ll be ready and waiting. Springs don’t last for ever, bolts rust through, posts give way … stupid people open the gate wider than they really need just to squeeze through … You can learn so much about a gate just from sitting and watching it.
