I looked out the bedroom window the other day to see….our flock of sheep in the front yard. They hadn’t escaped from the front paddock, hubs decided to use them as mobile lawn mowers.

As you can see from the photo, the grass is VERY long. We’ve been overseas for quite a bit over the last three months – 2.5 months in Italy and two weeks in Malaysia and Thailand. Hubs was with me for seven of the twelve weeks I was away.

Back in New Zealand, the warmer Spring weather was causing the grass to grow and grow. By the time we returned home, our ride-on mower just wasn’t going to cut it. We also want to landscape the area around the house, including the Secret Garden. So the sheep are kickstarting the whole thing by eating the grass. Zeph and Zsa Zsa were quite stunned to suddenly see a whole bunch of sheep in their yard and stood and stared at them all for quite some time.
