Forrests’ forest is the small front paddock that three fat sheep stay in when they need to slow down on the food!
Forrest loves this paddock he can go nuts in here quite safely,there are rabbit smells and sightings,sheep poop to munch on (no one said he had great taste) and also the bath tub that has the sheep water in it.
We don’t let the dogs go ‘free range’ anywhere on the property as there are inherent risks involved.Snakes in summer,parts of fencing that could be escaped through,and due to the size untold things that could cut,scratch or injure a running or curious dog,Roos are also a consideration as if the dogs see one …well they would have to chase,it’s in there nature.
Not only is it illegal to allow your dog to chase or bother wildlife,it is incredibly dangerous,a Kangaroo can kill a dog quite easily,also a dog roaming or straying on to neighbouring property is not good,the property owner could shoot to protect their livestock ad be well within their rights.
So ..enough drama and tales of doom,now to Forrests Forest!
This area has been gone over by myself and my hubby,we have checked fencing,the terrain and it is safe for not only the three fat sheep but our precious dogs..so when the sheep move to a different paddock ( the dogs do not bother our sheep at all but it would get crazy with sheep and dogs all over! ) it is time for the dogs to let their legs go crazy and run like the wind!
