After the sheep are shorn they sometimes don’t recognize each other. Biddy and Socks started bumping heads yesterday then Biddy started chasing Socks around the barn.
We usually keep all the sheep in the barn until they are all shorn. They prefer to be together and if we let them out one by one after they were shorn, we risk letting some of the sheep out who still need to be shorn.
But there were only two more sheep to shear when they started chasing each other around so we let all the sheep who had been shorn out of the barn. After that, it only took Biddy and Socks a few minutes to figure out that they knew each other.
