  1. Several suggestions. Does the town own any land that they keep open – not playgrounds or playing fields of any kind, but land in an open space program, or perhaps there is a land conservancy in your area. Either will do. We had a 47 acre field here, owned by the town and they take hay off it once a year. I reached out to the town council by letter and was turned down several times, but kept at it. And in that letter I described sheepherding as a passive use of land. In fact sheep on a field is the personification of open space. Now I have permission except for the few months the hay is
  2. Excellent information - thank you for your insightful response. Barbara
  3. Amanda, I just finished reading your article on the finals blog. Enjoyable and well written as usual and you brought up an interesting point where you use your dogs during lambing season and it tells you alot about the individual. How do you determine when a dog is 'ready'or 'capable' to use on ewes and lambs? Age, attitude, ability? Thanks you. Barbara
  4. Most parks, if they allow dogs, have a sign indicating dogs must be on leash and its probably an insurance thing. I have multiple dogs and do not want to cause any problems, nor do I want to run into anyone so I go in the very, very off hours. It is not likely that anyone will be in the park at dark, lights or otherwise, if it is snow covered and cold. Or very early in the AM. By the same token, I was stopped once by the park police (in the middle of the day) for not having a leash. I downed the dog(s) and walked over the officer and explained I had virtual leashes. Ha!
