    I also love that bouncy critter @Rammy has.

    We got Mama from a farm in Carthage, TN that we had been to getting our ram. They run their sheep with cows inside perimeter field fence in pastures subdivided in just netting and two strand poly rope. Nobody knew her thought process but they witnessed Mama more than once run into and through both electric barriers and would then make a straight run at their commercial garden beds that supplied Knoxville restaurants. It's like she had figured out that it only hurt for a few seconds if she ran into it fast enough to disconnect both types of temp fencing from the voltage source. They knew how our fencing was and called to ask if we wanted her (and at a good price) since she was costing them so much money.

    What a way to get a great animal! They are SMART...and love fresh veggies. :lol: Goats will "consume" an apple tree!

    At my other farm (20 yrs ago) a group of goats got out & into neighbors garden of collards one week before Thanksgiving! :(That sure cost me! Also ate all the pansies -- dessert??

    Cute ram lambs!

    Wonder if you’ll end up with any spotted or black lambs this year? I like variety.

    The spotted ewe throws solid black or almost solid with a white patch or two. I'm not sure what her solid black daughter will throw but I'm assuming solid black also. Most of the others have some brown spots that fades out as they mature except for two of them.

    I was sorting some pictures last night and came across a picture of Thor's sire Buford. He is a massive boy and one of several Akbash dogs on his home farm. They have a heavy coyote presence in the area but they rarely try to go after sheep.
