It's that time again to feed all left over pumpkins to the sheep.
Bring the pumpkins to the back field. Simon inspects the produce. This one has a nice handle to help drag it around.
Throw the pumpkin to the ground and split it open.
Yum not bad. If Simon can eat them fast enough the sheep won't get any!
I wonder if the seeds are helpful in worming dogs?
Opps, Simon hears the neighbors ATV, must run like the wind to see if there is any danger. Everything is cool so run like the wind back to get more pumpkin guts. (The poor sheep are still getting use to this "Cheetah dog". He runs everywhere at full speed. On lead he is soft and quiet while we walk threw the sheep headed for the field then away he goes full speed ahead.)
Hey, all the pumpkins are in with the sheep.
Now what do I do?
Stick your nose threw the fence grab the stem and pull hard.
Gee's the pumpkin is stuck on the other side of this wire...
and it won't come with me.
Poor Simon will have to settle for a big chunk of beef heart for dinner!
We weighed Simon on November 6, 2010 a little over six months old and he weighs in at 85 pounds.
I live out side Reno Nv on 20 acres with my husband 3 dogs 6 cats and my flock of Shetland Sheep. We have a Ma-Pa landscape business I'm the bookkeeper secretary and girl Friday. The best part of the job is that the office is at home. This gives me the opportunity to raise the sheep, farm the land. ;o) and fiber arts but not as much as I'd like.
