Wait? We have to wait while you do a head count?!! But we are starving and the flies are eating us alive!Sheep get pretty excited about eating. New grass is a big thrill. Just going into a new pasture is enough to cause mob scenes. It doesn't matter if they are hungry or not, they just love the excitement of new scenery, a whole new buffet to sample! Their philosphy seems to be, that the first one through the gate will get all the good stuff. No matter that there is several acres of good stuff. They take this so far as to literally have four or five sheep try and squeeze through the gate opening at once. Since it's set up for one to two sheep at the most, this can get ugly. I have actually seen three sheep wedged firmly, all three still trying their best to be the first through. I try my best to funnel the sheep in so there isn't a pile up, but it doesn't always work. With the bigger gates, it isn't an issue, but it can still be tricky getting out of the way!
