The bravest among them goes through the next gate, and they all start crowding behind to follow down the hill.
Usually, at the bottom of the hill, the lambs start running and soon cross the creek. The lambs haven't developed the caution of the ewes; the pull of all that grass is just too much for them to resist.
The ewes come more slowly, often in single file. All the sheep immediately start grazing, spreading out across the pasture. See short video clips of my morning walk with the sheep on Hidden Spring Farm's facebook page (click on the icon at the upper right of this page.)
