One pen of animals escaped yesterday, so I let all of the rest out today with Tor's help. The ones that had escaped were banging on fences, so it became a way to return peace. Some of the animals can be very vocal when left on their own. Of course, this means a lot more raking. Unbelievable how much of a mess the few escapees made in one night.

While letting animals loose, we took time to trim a few hooves and check for udders. The Rambouillet are about a month out and so is one of the Shetland/Border Leicester crosses. Garnet, the Jacob ewe will probably be the first to deliver. I expect the next month to be rather quiet.
