Some people have their ah-ha moments while in the shower. Mine happen when cleaning horse stalls or mowing.
The longer I'm doing one of those tasks, the better, or more outrageous those ideas become.
Our house is surrounded by pastures and fields of hay, soybeans and corn. Because we don't like stepping outside and into a corn field, it has a large yard.
Over the years, we've planted trees, which provide windbreaks and shade. They also lengthen the mowing time.
Last fall, while mowing and battling pine needles and cobwebs, I had one of those ah-ha moments.
What if we turn the sheep into that section of the yard?
The electric fencing netting arrived this week.
Time will tell if it is a brilliant idea or a big fail.
