Canyon View Preserve - Day 6

The goats and sheep completed their work on the first paddock yesterday, so we moved into a new paddock just across the small creek at Canyon View.  They were happy to be on fresh feed.  We appear to be holding to the schedule I established for the project.

One of the challenges in managing blackberries with sheep and goats is that sheep sometimes get stuck in the thorns.  We had to rescue one ewe lamb who was stuck - she's fine.  The thorns are also hard on my border collies.  I was quite proud of Mo and Taff - they showed considerable toughness in moving through the brambles to move the sheep and goats yesterday.
