We spent most of today watering and harvesting. The temperature kept creeping up and by 2 PM, it reached 92 and we were all for staying in the house and resting.
A good share of our day was spent acquiring these wonderful new Shetland sheep and getting them settled. We decided we really wanted smaller sheep because they are easier to handle. Now we will be spending time getting them used to us and to being touched. They are a primitive breed and have lovely wool. The second and 4th are sisters and the other two are this years lambs from one of them. So we will also be looking for another group and/or to trade the fellow with the horns before breeding season.
