Headed for the barn

The sheep have moved to the barn for the winter.  They still have a small area of exercise in the grass, and spend most their time lying in the sun.  Chuck is still putting finishing touches in the inside of the barn.  Now that we only have 5 sheep, we've got a brand new 30x60 barn for them with new fenceline hay/grain feeder, and all new gates setting up the loafing area, and a couple large pens to keep anyone who needs to be kept separate.  We also got a loading ramp, and put in water and electricity to the barn this year.   The sheep use about 1/3 of the space, and the remaining is used for hay, grain, the tractor, and storage of other "farm" supplies.
