Eco Lawn Mowing Using Sheep

For the last couple of summers I have noticed a Eco-friendly way that people are choosing to maintain empty lots. They are using small herds of Sheep. I think this is a great way to make sure that empty lots are mowed and also a good way to keep the sheep fed. My son is an animal lover and he spotted these Sheep when we were at a stop sign just down the street from our house.

I totally had to stop so he could get a close look. He was saying hi to them, giving them his best "baaaaaaa" and kissy calling them like he does for the dog to come. It was so cute. He was saying so much, I have no clue what it was other than cool, sheep and wow. But man was he excited. We sat there for a bit and another family walked up so their kids could get a closer look. The Sheep were all running over and making all sorts of noises excited to have visitors. We had ice cream in the trunk so we had to get going but this week I plan to let him see them more close up. So great to see some farm animals in our suburban neighborhood even if its temporary.

These arent the greatest pictures but it was great in person. They would look up at us and my son would wave to them.
