I’m on Day 4 of describing our wonderful vacation to the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone last week, but I will insert a post of what I am doing now that I’m back home. This is the north fence of the pasture. This is AFTER grazing. The sheep don’t venture in this far once the combination of dallisgrass and blackberries grow so thick. Access is hampered since there is an irrigation ditch just in front of this mess (the left part of the photo). There is a fence under there. This was yesterday morning’s achievement. I dumped the branches in the corral and the sheep were happy to work on defoliation when it was easier.However I’m not happy that the branches get stuck in their wool. This morning’s task was to finish the job. There are plenty of these still on what is left and they will be easier to get to. With my luck though they will all ripen just about the time that I go to Texas for the birth of my granddaughter.
By the way, you’d think that I’d come up with another solution to this problem. See this post from just over a year ago. Maybe some strategic fencing to hold some sheep right at that fence line.
Stay tuned for our adventures in Yellowstone!
