Brrrr!
You folks with sheep know what I'm talking about, huh? This time there was a soaking wet sheep crowding in from both sides. Boy, talk about something that will wake you up! :)

I refer to my soaking wet sheep as walking sponges. When they crowd me while holding a bucket of grain or a bale of hay I say, "I'm knee deep in sheep."

I purchased an inexpensive pair of yellow rain pants to wear when feeding on rainy days. Keeps the shepherd dry and much warmer in spring and fall(they are hot and sweaty in summer). An added benefit is the rustling noise the pants make when I'm walking keep the sheep at bay so I'm not knee deep and can get chores done a little more quickly.

When it's a little colder than it is now, I usually wear insulated coveralls to do the chores. Rain pants sound like a good idea for when it's wet but not so cold. :)
