    Storm came in just as I finished mowing the last paddock.
    Then power went out.
    We left for town to kill time, hoping power comes back...

    Bought a sheep chair!
    Need to find some strong, short panels to use as a funnel system & then probably buy a used automatic headgate, if I can find one, for the end.

    Turns out pipe was rubber...Could of saved $200 if I had known, but you can't tell looking or tapping it. Never would of guessed it to even get a magnet out.
    Anywho, hopefully it'll help water pressure and maybe stop it from freezing each time temps drop..
    No daylight through it, water dribbles out.

    Probably going to go with these groups.
    In on October 8th would mean lambs should start to arrive in March, instead of February.

    I also got a large sized sling for weighing animals. Large instead of small because reviews said large was too small for calves, so thought it'd be good for older lambs.
    Its huge.
    Idk what kind of giant calves the other people had, but it can hold my adult rams...lol
