Moving Sheep

Lots of fun getting this beast in the back of the pick up truck!

We had to transport him by himself since he's so aggressive towards me.

Not a happy camper!

So that's Marrio, our rambunctious Ram, in the back of Country Bloke's truck. He absolutely hates me and charges me every time I go into the paddock. Our amazing friend down the road who owns about 20 acres and supplies us with hay has most graciously allowed us to graze our flock of sheep on areas of pasture his tractor can't get too, which explains the ride in the back of the truck. 

It's a mutually beneficial relationship. Our sheep clean up his property, getting nice and plump in the process and he gets his land cleared for free.  

You learn out here in the country that mutually beneficial relationships are the unspoken rule.

I'm happy to have the sheep moved. They can be quite noisy and a pain in the butt to manage. We definitely bit off more than we could chew with having a flock of 12! With full time life, it can get quite difficult balancing everything.

 But Country Bloke and I are dreamers. We don't really know exactly what we want so we are just trying everything out so we can figure out what we DON'T want! Lol.

 I can tell you what I don't want, I don't want to shear a sheep ever again! Blah!

Country Bloke shearing Zanette. She's a biiiig girl.

Til next time my country livin' lovers!
