Megan and the Fat Four

The Five Virgins have been replaced.
I'm now using Megan and the Fat Four as the practice sheep for herding.
In herd feeding situations, the leaders usually get the most and best food. When I looked over our flock, I saw some fat ewes. The obvious solution was to separate them, feed them lower quality hay, and use them for herding practice.
The Fat Four all come from the same foundation ewe: ChocoButt, a big brown ewe who was always the first at the feeder and always the fattest. Her daughters and granddaughters inherited her leadership and eating skills.
The Fat Four include: Hershey, Godiva, Mounds, and Reese's.
I used them for practice for the first time this morning.
I don't think they like their new job.
But I don't think they'll go on a hunger strike in protest.

  1. They're not fat, they're just "chunky"! Well, at least they're not wearing t-shirts that expose three inches of rolling midriff.
