Emergency, Emergency Food Supply
The sheep ate all the foliage in the areas that we had fenced in for pasture, so we moved them out into to lawn via portable electric fences. Once they ate all that the lawn had to give we needed to move them somewhere else, but it had to be outside the fence line, what to do? We bought some snow fence and rolled it out into woods to give the girls more brush to devour.
See their smiling faces? (Left to right: Jeepers, Kadydid, and Gardenia)
The tall brush didn't last too long, but every little bit helps. Kia seem to like it just fine.
Gardenia enjoying a sapling and some long grass. Next year we are going to increase our fenced in area, and boy are we going to need it.
Ps: In case anyone was wondering where I have been my parents came for a visit and I have been too busy to get on the computer. I plan on reading up on my favorite sites tonight and look forward to posting all the stuff that has been going on around here.
