Attack of the killer sheep.

You should have seen them, running at me, yellow fangs gnashing, oh the horror.
Well, not really.

With the late fall and warm weather, the alfalfa around the country has been growing well and it is a good time to be a sheep man. With the good feed just sitting around going to waste, most farmer don't want to risk trying to squeeze out another cutting this late in the fall, the sheep guys are putting up portable electric fence as fast as they can and feeding off the hay fields. With the exception of one neighbor, I am surrounded by little woolly field ornaments making sheep noises well into the evening hours.

I don't have a problem with sheep or the sheep ranchers. Well, maybe just a little one, I did see 'The Sheepman' with Glen ford a few times.
