New sheep "tractor" in action
Here's a series of the new sheep "tractor" working as intended. First you see the graze, lush ungrazed on the left, the current pasture on the right. Then sheep are lured into the tractor with a little oats. The fence is moved, the sheep let go, and there they are, grazing happily on new pasture, only a tiny bit of the old pasture being left inside the pen.
And Mr. Haggis sitting in the truck, services no longer required. But don't feel bad for him. We were called back to MOFGA later because a sheep had got out, and he managed to let them all get out. Probably to prolong his fun.
(As we might say in Yorkshire, it's a poor shepherd as blames 'is sheepdog!)
