Sheep On Road!

That's right!! Keep a look out folks - the sheep that make this ranch whole are coming home from the high country!

All 2,000 sheep (mama's and their little babies) will be home on Sunday afternoon. Why am I so excited?! The sheep, 4 dogs and one herder, Alberto have been away all summer. It will be nice to know they are all safe and sound here, at home. No bear to worry about and more guard dogs to scare off the coyotes at night.

To add some icing to the cake - I will help bring the sheep home! It's my 'job' to stay about 100 yards in front of the (very large) herd and make sure oncoming traffic slows down. It's a dangerous job, but somebody's gotta do it!

Wish us luck that everyone (furry and human) makes it home safely!

Believe-you-me - there WILL be pictures. Lots of 'em.
