The rams have been enjoying the southwest pasture so much. It is full of wild strawberries, red, white and yellow clovers that Elsie the cow just loves, and wild roses and all sorts of grass, tall grass and obviously burrs. After going to get the rams and the cow night after night for several months, they have been coming in on their own for the past few nights. Little Johnny was born here, one of the very first lambs born on the farm. He is a four horned Jacob and is for sale, reluctantly. Leo, the Angora buck is also for sale and is covered in burrs too, which is terrible for his mohair. He has a very fine thick coat and will need to be shorn in September or the fibre will be totally matted and useless in the spring. The smallest sheep are not yet affected by the burrs, so the plants must be tall. The goats need to be in that pasture for a few months to clean it all up, but it is not fenced for goats yet. Soon I hope it will be. In the meantime, it is most unfortunate to contain burrs.
