Walkin’ the sheeps

Got the boys a playground ball today, thinking that perhaps they could use some diversion out in the pasture, since they have so much leisure time.
But they didn’t seem to know what to make of it, we did some halter training instead.

For the first time ever sheep got to go out of the pasture on a field trip!
I thought we could walk around the yard, enjoy some unfamiliar grass, and then stop around back where there is a bunch of ivy growing (they love ivy).

Edgar is really my go-to guy for this kind of stuff.
He is so cooperative and just loves the attention. So I slipped on the halter and away we went.

He walked like a champ. Wish I had a video of it. We walked around the yard, and over to the orchard, and back to the ivy, where we stopped to let him much for a while.

Munch munch munch.

Here’s some shots from Chone’s turn-

with everyone from kitty to chickens (in the bushes to the right, where you can’t see them) in attendance to see why in the world the sheep are out of the pasture!

Chone was a little too nervous to enjoy the ivy so much, but did pretty good, considering that Wally was heckling him the whole time.

And here’s Edgar, talking me into giving him another go-

I’m such a sucker for a sweet sheep 🙂

    Luv your new hairstyle Denise 🙂
    Do your boys ever get head-butty at all? I know they are wethers but I have read they can get aggressive too.

      They butt each other when they are playing around in the field sometimes, but I’ve never had any of them butt me. I got myself sheared Friday,, and it’s such a nice change to have short-ish hair again! My new spring ‘do. 🙂
