Today, eight new breeding ewes joined our flock. It was something of a reunion as these new ewes were the flock our original three came from. So our three were reunited with their mothers.
We only have a small trailer, so we collected them in two batches of 4. We had fun getting them into the trailer, but once in our field, they came out quite happily. Our 3 were not quite sure what to make of the new arrivals, but unlike chickens, they enjoyed a peaceful introduction.
The second batch of four were most restless when they were left behind and were duly delighted to be re-united. By evening, they were all happily lying together chewing the cud.
