After that we do have a plan. First the Men are going to have a go at the pasture. Until the girls give birth it will be a man spot. After that the Phinny and Chief will be pulled off and put in the goat shed. Then it will be the Ewe's turn at the pasture and the Weithers will stay with the ewes. We will only be penning the flocks during the winter months to keep them safe and when they are birthing. That will keep everything from being over grazed and the worms under control too.
Mom and I took time out of our day to shear the hurt Ewe. Her name is Peonie and she is the Mother to Pistol. We didn't get her neck very well but she did let us get her body and that will let her keep cool this summer. She was very matted and the fleece was terrible. It had vm so bad that the shears wouldn't even go through it in spots. I do think that she feels better though.
As for today ... I worked on school work most of the day. I am trying to get done so that I can have a bit of a break for summer. Then Mom will get my 9th grade books and I will be back at it. I wonder how long a break I will get. Mom said it will depend on when I get my work done for this year and if I get at least an 80 in everything.
Oh and Mom wanted to see if anyone had any ideas for names for the three new Cotswold ewes. I say we should wait for the papers to get here but she thinks they need names now so that she can have something to call them. Post any ideas you have in comments and then we can vote ....
