Today, we’ll separate the flock into groups to sell, keep, or breed. 
Our Border Collie, Jet, will help bring the entire flock down to the handling system.
This brilliantly engineered system of chutes, pens, and gates, allows us to group the
sheep according to their destiny. We'll also check in with the other animals like the
 ‘piglets’, all grown up now, the fall chickens, and the turkeys. Fee $5 per person.
