|Our First Flock|
You may recognize the dog in the photo. It's an Anatolian Shepherd and is the guardian of our flock while at their home farm. We'll have guardians for our flock at our farm, too. Here is a picture of Hobart (named after a commercial meat grinder, of all things), and he was raised and trained in Gay, GA, by Brian Cash of Ewe-niversally Green. He's also patiently waiting with his flock at Brian's farm. We think he'll like our girls, and will also help us raise two little guardian puppies that we're getting. I'll have pictures of the puppies soon because we're going to pick them up on Sunday.
As for now, we have been clearing the wood lines and are getting our perimeter fencing underway. Thanks to our nephew and his girlfriend, we made quick work of several large trees last weekend. The son of one of Bob's cousins is coming tomorrow to stay for a week or two to help with the fencing.
We'll all be in great physical shape once this fencing is done. Simple living on our farm right now means simply sore, simply tired, and simply hungry!
