Finally, We Let Our Sheep Out to Pasture (in our backyard)

  • Published: 11 September 2019
  • After more than a week of training our sheep to be handled, we’re letting them out into the sunshine and green grass that is our backyard. We didn’t get them as far trained as we would of liked, so we’ll keep a run open to the stall for more training. In the mean time, let them enjoy the great outdoors.

    Mount mineral feeders to a single 2 x 4, then mout it to wall. Much easier to relocate later.

              I love your Vlog I watch it every day it’s encouraging to know that when a child is told to do something he doesn’t not like the kids are in my area where they were told to do something and they gave you the finger I find that very refreshing and admirable that you teach your kids the way you do if I could travel down there I would love to live with you guys I could just do animal chores my board and wrong I did that with my family member

                    But my real question, those sheep have no parasites because they were kept in a situation where they NEVER brought their mouths near sheep poo.

                    But now in the stall, is there not a parasite danger?

                      Hello, greetings from Argentina. No offense but I don't understand something. Children go to school or you have some home school system. I congratulate you for your work on the farm, greetings to the family and those super nervous goats!

                          Did you think of putting casters in the middle of the wrestling ring sides so the middle wouldn't get stuck on the humps? Also you need to put a cross bar to prevent wear on the corners from the twisting stress that's happening when you push from either side

                              normally sheeps, or any animal that you introduce minerals to, will go ham on the first day go a lot slower over the next week and beyond. also, make sure, as you're using a general ruminant mineral line that the copper is lower than say a goats as too much copper can be fatal to sheep, even if it is a normal amount for a goat

                                            It's a great sign if they stay laying down when you look in on the sheep. Out in the paddock I call them as I walk to them and rattle a bucket of grain. I just call now and they come running to me.
                                            P.s. go over where you dremeled with white paint.
