Sorry but this has been a bloggable day for me. I was upstairs starting to tackle a year’s worth of sewing repairs when I noticed sheep running through our back yard. I ran downstairs, grabbed a coat and clogs and this is what I found:
Rather than head into the back yard, they decide to shoot across the front yard and head around the far side of the garage:
They head back behind the garage and pumphouse:
And back into the barn through the “man door” that apparently Tom had not latched shut earlier.
Back in the barn again:
And on the correct side of the fence (looking somewhat innocent):
There are a lot of things that went right with this little escapade. I was home and by a south-facing window to notice their great escape. There were only two dogs outside, and the beagle was hiding from the cold and missed the whole thing. Plus we found new homes for our two goat killing dogs. And there is not much foliage that the sheep can destroy this time of year. But we obviously need to be really careful with our new man door to the barn we installed with our barn wall remodel last summer. And we should install a backup lock for it.
Maybe I can get back to sewing now?
