Mowing the lawn and reading a book at the same time!

Yes, thanks to Molly, Bindi, Matilda, Roxanne and their lambs, and our portable electronet fencing, I can now mow the front lawn and read a book at the same time!

Yesterday we spent the better part of the morning putting up portable fencing in our front yard.  This is the farm’s first debut of sheep that can be seen by passers-by!  

 

From the street, except for our sign, you’d hardly know we have a farm — only the top of the barn is visible if you look for it!

 

But today, all of that has changed temporarily!

I’ve been letting the front yard grow for the past couple of weeks and it was time to move the ewes and lambs onto it.

Lots of nourishing clover is being enjoyed by all, the lawn is being well fertilized, and the girls and lambs are getting some pasture that is completely clean from the nasty Barber pole worm parasites!  Nothing could be better!

Now maybe I can finally get to the end of this book!
