As lambing season approaches, I make changes in the pasture/barn set up to keep the ever widening ewes safe and comfortable.
Murphy's protection is important, especially when the flock is moves across our fields during the grazing season. Murphy moves his flock around with a stomp or head swing in response to perceived and real threats. Now that the ewes are a little slower, I want to limit rushing around the round bale feeder and narrow spaces in the barnyard.
After some "how-do-you-do" head butting, the rams and Murphy have settled down.
