The fields have rested and the grass is perfect for the sheep at St. Michaels. Bella and Sassy, the two jennys, are there with the sheep to help protect them from coyotes (see them way in the back?).
There have been indications of coyotes in the fields recently – we hope Bella and Sassy get the hang of this very soon!
Just a quick mention that St. Michaels is one of the most beautiful spots to walk, sit and reflect in our corner of the world (but don’t, unless you need some sort of shock therapy, ‘test’ the electric fencing by the sheep to see if it works. I can’t even write that sentence without shivering. As I discovered, it works!).
If you haven’t had a chance, find an hour or two to just sit in the fields and you will be rewarded!
By butterflies, migrating birds…
