Fresh Pasture…


We only have 3 acres, but it’s laid out nicely and we have several pastures.  We like to rotate the pastures for the hoof stock because it’s one of the best ways to keep parasites low.  This little pasture up front is for our rams and boys, but right now, the boys are still young and running with the main flock.  First of the month we plan to seperate everyone, but right now, this pasture is empty.  And it’s full of yummy clover and little blue cornflowers.  And some nice tall grass.

It’s funny, when you open up the paddock fence and let everyone out, they RUN to this pasture.  They know where the good eats are.  It’s getting a little whacked down now and we will lock them out in a day or two, but for now, they are really enjoying it!  I love watching them graze a new fresh pasture.  They are all super quiet and just munching like fools.  All you hear is the grind of little teeth and the rip of grass as it’s pulled up. Even the little ram boys are involved in the fun!
