As the containment lines on the fires grow each day, we are starting to bring back our livestock to the farm. First to come were the sheep and the Livestock Guardian Dog, yesterday. Happy dance!
If we need to evacuate again, this group of animals can be quickly loaded and removed along with us humans and the few pets we have home. We are waiting for more containment, and/or a wind event that tests the containment, before we bring back more livestock.
It feels so good to have some life on the farm again! They all got a lot of petting and back scratching when they got home. We all missed them so much.
