"When dusk falls, shepherds lead their sheep to a safe place to spend the night, where wolves or other predators cannot prey on the sleeping sheep. Usually the shepherd builds a stone enclosure with a small opening and he calls the sheep one by one into the sheepcote for the night. When all the sheep are safely inside the sheepfold, he will lie down in the opening so that nothing can come in the only door to harm the sheep.
The Shepherd always protects The Sheep!"

Our last Jersey cow...
It must be close to a year now that we sold our last Jersey cow and her bull calf. We milked our almost-all Jersey herd for well over 30 years. How we loved those girls and how they each had their own quirks. That same old well-used barn which is leaning more and more every year now houses the sheep and their babies until we get some new shelter for them. It may be an ark! God continues to bless us with rain. You all have a good weekend. I will be doing sheep "stuff"...on the hoof and off!
