Get The Flock Outta Here [Jan. 2nd, 2017|09:37 am]
Tony Grist
Woke up this morning to find our garden full of sheep.



They normally reside in the field next door, only somehow the gate had been left open.

This is giving me a pleasant flashback to living in the small village of Stahl in Germany, 35-ish years ago. We were occasionally delayed going to or from work because of sheep being herded along the road.

It's very nice having animals around.

I used to know all that off by heart- don't think I do anymore.

Talk about following the herd; this lot moved everywhere en bloc.

Well, that'll save you having to mow the lawn... Or it would, if we weren't in January.

The cat was terrified of them.

You wouldn't want to stand in their way.

That's quite a lot of sheep stampeding by your door. Did they get rounded up?

I'm told there are about 200 in the flock but not all of them ended up in our garden.

We didn't have the farmer's number so I had to knock up the neighbours who rent him their field. Once I'd set things in motion the clean-up operation was over quite quickly- and the sheep returned to where they came from.

I think they may have been inspired to do so by the open gate

That used to happen to us when we lived 7 miles outside the town. The sheep were no problem, they knew they weren't supposed to be on our field and I could herd them back easily. It was when the herd of cows, plus bull, strayed onto our land that it got a bit more worrying.

Yes, cows kill people sometimes- I don't suppose sheep ever do.

I imagine it was nice getting to go someplace new for once.
