Mid-May the pasture and weather was ready for us to turn out the sheep. We typically wait until at least May to turn the sheep out to pasture. We like to ensure that the vegetation has had time to grow enough to take the pressure of cabin fevered sheep.
This is the first pasture we opened to the sheep. The grass and clover is long and ready to be trimmed. This is one half of the pasture.

After running hard it was time to get back to eating.
It is going to be a great spring and early summer.
