How to train sheep to go through the chute, make it the only way out, to go to pasture. Yes, that is Sentry in the lead.

Pouring rain and storming last night and today. Going to storm tonight and tomorrow too. I’ve been outside enough to get drenched. Oh joy.

I worked in the house today, I put together a shelf tower in the closet, last one. Then I cleaned up the utility room, been using it as a paint booth. LOL

The dogs were barking and had “something” out by the pond. I took a shovel to investigate. They found a turtle. Sentry HATES turtles. They don’t belong in his pasture and ignore his barking. I scooped it up and put it over the fence.

Still raining. Ewes pen is a suck boots off quagmire. They are out on the field, getting rained on but at least not standing in mud. Their shelters are not adequate to keep the water out. They work good until we have a deluge that lasts for days. I’ve got to get a barn up.

Is that blue baling twine?

Jesus is Lord and Christ 🙏❤️🇺🇸
Absolutely! I love that it comes in such pretty decorator colors!

Baling twine is EVERYBODY's go to! I refenced the south border of my property with cattle fencing attached to fenceposts with baling twine.
I use it every year in my garden.
It is indestructible.
I save every single piece. I match the ends, then fold a few times, tie a loose knot in the middle and hang on a nail. It’s great for practicality everything.

Especially useful in the garden for vining trellises. I let frost kill the vines, give it a little longer to dry out, then cut the baling twine off the T-posts, fold, stomp, fold, stomp, fold, until it will fit in trash bag. All done!

Sun came out yesterday afternoon, what a welcome sight!
I took this picture out in the field. That’s Ewenique on the right. She’s 9 years old and my first sheep. Her 3 month old daughter, Jet, is the black ewe lamb on the left. In the middle is Ewenique’s granddaughter, Frimplepants.
