Spring is Springing!
Nothing says "SPRING is here!" quite like the first time the animals go out on grass. After this past winter when they spent more than two months in a very limited area surrounded by snow, we knew the sheep would be anxious for the green grass of Spring.
I did not anticipate how "happy" they would be to have the open space and relative freedom of the paddock. At first the lambs weren't interested in the grass....they were FREE! The leaping and running continued until they were all quite winded and panting heavily.
Now, if we could feel the same joy about all the spring work around the farm....
