That's what hubby calls this mixed flock of sheep and goats. They are hired by the home owners association to reduce the fuel load in the meadow before the fire season.
I don't usually have a fence behind my garden, the herder puts up a temporary fence wisely assuming we would prefer to prune our plants ourselves.
This is lambing season and we enjoy watching the lambs and kids. It gets rather noisy when they're separated from their mothers and calling for them.
We also came home to rain so I guess we won't go camping this week. I had hoped for another trip to acclimate us to altitude before we open the cabin. The cabin is at 9600' and since we live near sea level it can be a shock to these old bodies when we first go up.
I hope you enjoyed the posts I left while I was away. I'm working on the Yosemite Photos and should have some posts ready next week.
