The sheep shed is growing again. This weekend it doubled in size to make room for a couple of lambing pens. One small corner will be carved out for the Ram and the dog. It isnt very pretty, but considering the first half was thrown up quickly during a snow storm, it isn't bad. I have a feeling there will be more construction on it in the future.
Next, we fenced off about a quarter acre lot to separate the ram and dog from the ewes. We tried something new with fencing this time using 4X4 roll fence. It worked out great, much less expensive and quicker to put up than goat panels. After the bad experience combining baby lambs with big dogs, we don't want to take any chances. Lambs could be born as early as 2 weeks from now.
A lot was accomplished this weekend, thanks to my little helpers!
And their bellies keep getting bigger...
