My computer suffered a nasty power surge last week, and has been limping along since, but only just barely. Today I sent it off for repair, leaving me with only my iPad to pretend to be a real computer. I started working on computers in the mid-1970s, and bought my first PC when they came out in the early 80s. Since then, I've never been without a PC or Mac, so little wonder I'm feeling withdrawal symptoms! Among many other things I can't do on the iPad, I can't generate the circuit maps I use for each shepherding post, and I've yet to figure out if I can add photos and videos in this mode. We'll see shortly. Aha! Figured it out. Today was the first circuit for over a week, as weather and my own health have kept me close to home, so it was wonderful to spend some quality time with the flock today. The mild northerly breeze had pulled them near the top yards, more or less in the middle of the Basin Grazing Area. We took our cue from the wind and headed into it, toward Old Cabin. The sheep were feeling quite frisky and gave the dogs a bit of trouble getting down the first hill, but from there it went smoothly, and we left them in the far northeast corner of the property, where the new growth is surprisingly lush, considering it's formally not yet growing season. In fact, July and August are typically our coldest months, with very little growth expected. We haven't had many severe frosts yet, though, which may explain the bit of growth.
