Yesterday I had started this blog entry and it disappeared while I was adjust the position of some photos- not impressed. So here we are again.
So, that enclosure I erected of electrified tape, 4 strands to be correct = epic failure. On Monday we decided to let the sheep out into the pen. The leader, the black ewe, went in and then made a spectacular leap between the top and 2nd strand! I stood in amazement, thinking now what? Holy crow, portable electric netting will be a must.Those of you with sheep will be saying , yeah saw that coming but I had to try because: a) use it, b) be frugal. I am now rich in experience !
I also experimented with overdying some wool. Originally, they were dyed with plant material. So, I started with some of the paler stuff.
I leave you with a photo of some of the roosters. If anyone would like one, please let me know!
