Rain

A spring view to the back pasture.

This photo was taken about one month ago.  The pastures are much greener now and the grass is growing.  This is the time of year when the animals become very, very annoyed with the Shepherds.  They can see the green grass.  Why, oh why, won’t we let them have it?  But green alone isn’t enough – it also has to have some growth and height.  Portions of the pasture are ready and they have been let onto those portions.  They are also getting hay – and it’s a good alfalfa/grass mix hay.  It’s what we have left and you think they would be happy???  No.  NO.  NO!! Instead, it’s frequent, annoying baahs from the sheep.  Aargh!!!

The good news is all the rain we have been getting.  We have gotten several inches in the past few days and tomorrow the sun is supposed to start shining…throughout the weekend.  So the grass should grow fast in the next week.  Which means relief for the sheep and llamas…and the Shepherds.  🙂

    Same here. Ah, the drama! The yelling, the stampedes, the dissapointed looks. Rumors are spread (baa–I think I heard the shepherd calling us–baa-baa. Then there they come at a dead run for the millionith time that day…). Not my favorite time of the year. In fact if I ever ran away from the farm this would be the time. ha… Hope you get yours out on grass soon. Mine are halfway through the adjustment and getting put on the lush lower pasture.
