Our primary cleared area that we wanted to clear to make a pasture days before the sheep arrived.....
That same area three weeks later.
The day the sheep arrived....
Three weeks after. Notice the stripped saplings that look like twigs.
Before. (This is how the front area where the rams now live looks like, I wonder how long till it is eaten away?)
After. We have opened up the goat area for the sheep to graze in since the goats don't seem to eat for nourishment, only pleasure. The goats browse on what they like and leave the rest - the sheep seem to eat everything.
We are hooking up the electric netting next week once we get the batteries, hope the sheep don't mind hay in the meantime. We have done a lot of clearing and put up a lot of fence, but we definitely need more for next year. Too bad fencing isn't free,,,,
I am an Ocicat. My duties include; security (rodents), counter intelligence (predators), infiltration (sneaking) and night surveillance.
I live in NE Minnesota on 10 wooded acres with; my best friend Mocha, three dogs, chickens, Guinea Hens, Nigerian Dwarf Goats, Cascade Sheep, Icelandic sheep, and a few humans.
When we moved here it was completely wooded, our plan is to turn this property into a working homestead.
