We ran out of pasture way earlier than we ever expected, the sheep have done an excellent job of deforesting the areas that we had prepared for them. This meant that we had to resort to putting them into the emergency pasture, the front and back yards. Look at how well they keep the grass trimmed.
The top area was on the other side of the electric net fencing. Needless to say we have not had to mow the lawn since the sheep arrived. Note, the goats won't have anything to do with the grass in the lawn.
Since the leaves have started falling the sheep and goats have been chowing them down. I wonder if we won't have to rake this year as well?
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.
