Our new feeders
After the big rains last winter we needed to tractor the ruts out of the sheep pen. After tractoring the dirt became very silt-like. I didn't like feeding my sheep on the ground. I mimicked a friend of mine and bought two blue barrels for $18 each. Wayne cut the barrels in half and screwed on some small 'treated' wood pieces and voila....feeders! We have two outside and two inside for our 9 sheep. The barrels used to contain 'soy sauce,' so I guess their hay is a bit spicier these days :0)
Buffy the sheep-pig
Buffy is my lamb who is is really an almost 18 mo. old sheep now. She has been a "pig" about her food since she was very small. Her Mom is a California Red sheep. Buffy will turn on my dogs (momentarily) Real 'momentarily' if Yoko is moving them. LOL None of the other sheep climb into the feeders. Sigh.
