Fall grazing and shearing

Summer is coming to a close, and it’s time to get the flock ready for winter. Everyone gets a haircut and the grazing paddocks change. During the fall and early winter the grass grows slowly, so the paddocks need to be much larger to supply enough food for the herd. Even after a few snow showers, there’s still some grazing to do…. but it won’t last too long.
