For anyone who is still wondering where our missing sheep have gone (count us among them) they have been found! If you didn't know: we had some stray dogs attack our sheep and chase a bunch off last week. Kit stayed with the some of the flock that ran away and Togo, well... Togo stayed home and... ah... hmmm. Oh, give him a break! He's only 7 months old and it doesn't look like he did much of anything. Anyway, Scott found Kit and some of our sheep about 8 miles from our house and we doctored up those who needed it. We'd been missing about another 15. We couldn't figure out where they could be - the prairie is pretty flat.
Tonight we got a call from a neighbor (we are in Utah and heading to Colorado tomorrow) that he'd seen sheep booking down the road near his field. Another neighbor has some working border collies, would he help get the lost sheep home? YES! He walked them the 2 miles back to our place and put them away. What a relief! What heroes! Farm folk help each other and I am so grateful.
i am glad they were found!!!
good to hear Jenny, that is a relief!
