Enough of the snow has melted so there are actually some areas in the back pasture where the ground is showing. There’s not a lot for the animals to graze on, and it has no nutritional value at all, but it keeps them busy and hopefully less likely to nibble on the barn.
We have a routine now. Chloe follows me closely, then Red walks the sheep up behind us. Fanny and Lulu are the last to come. We take a walk around the pasture then I give each of the equines a treat. Fate runs around and the animals graze on weed and bushes.
They come back on their own when it’s time for hay. Here’s a video of them coming in from the back pasture, with Fanny trailing behind.
