So the previous living situation; no minerals, vaccines were a couple years ago, never been dewormed, and their hooves are horrible. I wish they were a little easier to handle so I could get them all fixed up easier.
We left to go get them at 10 am and finished at 11:30 last night. I feel like I got run over by a train. At least no one got hurt and I think the sheep are OK.
It was a nightmare to say the least- if you ask my BF. I didn't think it was so bad, thought it went pretty well actually! Worst part is is that they are wilder than a rabid buffalo. It was a nightmare getting them INTO the trailer at her place, we had to half herd them, half catch them and half drag them into it, and then it was even worse getting them OUT of the trailer and into our pen here. We had to catch/ lasso them one at a time, drag them out the trailer, flip them on their sides and tie their feet together, lift them in the back of my pick-up and drive them up to the pen. (We can't pull the livestock trailer to the pens).
And we had one week to get everything ready so we've been busting our butts getting the corral put up. Finally finished getting it up on Friday, and was supposed to pick up the chain link on Saturday and wrap the corral, but due to unforeseen circumstances we weren't able to pick the chain link up until Sunday; the day we ALSO picked up the sheep. So they sat in the livestock trailer for a couple hours while we finished the fencing.
And at least they are here now and I can start taking care of them properly! After my nap of course!
