Mommas gone wild!

So that lasted til about 10 oclock last night.

My husband asked me if there were supposed to be any sheep next door in the yard. No, they were supposed to be out back with the goats. Well, there are sheep in the yard next door.

So I got dressed again, in my dirty ole farm clothes, ran outside, and sure enough, there'a all the crazy momma sheep, standing at the little gate that leads to the pasture where all the screaming lambs were.

So went ahead and put the darm mommas back over there with their poor little lambs. Who, by the way, were doing just FINE earlier!

Don't they all look so happy together?????

We went out back to see what happened. So this gate was just laying flat on the ground. They had picked it up and thrown it down on the ground...

and got to this cattle panel, that I had just like this. And proceeded to move it to the middle of the yard.

So now, they are all back together again, after a very loud stressful day (for me!). I am putting a sign out front in a few minutes. I have them on Craig's list in Chattanooga, Atlanta, Knoxville and Nashville. Plus on face book. I just might have to take them to a sale barn. And I really do not want to do that.

Just TOO many sheep!!

I wish I lived near you, I'd take some of your sheep, especially as their wool is so beautiful. I'm amazed that they did so much damage to get back to their babies! Mind you, I'm used to ponies breaking out and going for a wander!!!

I sold 3 lambs today!!!! To some friends, so I know where they are! They do have some amazing wool. I'll keep some of the lambs from the ewes that have the better wool.

You need some good sheep too!

There’s nothing worse than when the sheep make a clean break for it! Seriously, though, they are beautiful animals that you should be able to sell fairly quickly and easily. I’ve used Craigslist and Facebook to sell things before and usually get a good deal from buyers. You should be able to move the sheep fairly easily selling through there too.
