The herbal ley

 We have one mighty happy Molly goat


This year we ran less sheep over winter - a little less than we had planned due to lambing not turning out how we expected. It has resulted with too much grass - a good problem to have in summer. It has given the bottom paddock a good rest and  become a good nutritious herbal pasture. Perfect to keep the sheep and Molly goat healthy.



They can munch away on the diverse range of herbs and grass, letting the other paddock rest and also re seed a herbal ley in that paddock too.


First Brent had to Molly goat proof the almond and chestnut trees plus run an electric fence in front of the natives.



It was off playing follow the leader Brent rattles the nut tin and they a come a running


Molly is always in the front and she brings the sheep up behind her.




Don't yea just love the total bliss on the ewes face!
 
This years ram lamb is still looking very much like a baby
