Rescuing the sheep

It has been a very sad year for drought stricken farmers as they struggle to feed their animals.  We have been working hard these couple of weeks to try and buy some sheep so that they are no destroyed needlessly.  We have a good supply of grain so we have been feeding the sheep with corn, sorghum and they are happily grazing on our paddocks of Lucerne.  They are certainly looking much fatter than when they first arrived.  While ultimately I know they will end up at the markets at least they have had a good life and been saved from starvation.
