All male herd
My all male herd is working out nicely, and there have been very few arguments among them since the girls have all left. They now also have more space in the barn, and much more pasture as well.
Clean up is faster, too. Since I have not been able to do much this summer due to the knee, I have not skirted this year's fiber, and am trying to get that done before bad weather sets in. It is also nice not to be spat upon every time one of the animals gets close to me. None of the males do that, except to each other, so that is another advantage of an all male herd. They are all well trained to go out to pasture, and when I want to bring them back in to the barn in the evening, all I need to do is clap my hands, call out a few names, and they all gather by the gate, wating for me to open it, and then they make a mad dash to the barn, where they know fresh hay is waiting for them.
I have not been at the Farm Market since July, and am hoping to be back there in November and December, when we only have two markets a month. That means I have to get going on making dryer balls, knitting scarves and spinning some yarn. Never a dull moment at the farm here. On top of that, I may have a Litter of puppies by the first week of December.
