Sheep, Guard Dog and Short Discussion of Dormancy

The buds are pushing and we're seeing budbreak in many parts of the vineyard!  We have held off on pruning the lowest parts of the vineyard, to try to extend dormancy another week or two to lessen the chance of a devastating frost.

Gaius (Spanish Ranch Mastif x Polish Tatra x Italian Marama) watched the sheep to make sure coyotes or mountain lions don't intrude and prey on them.

The sheep are out there to knock down the cover crop, as we cannot get a tractor in that field until it dries out--maybe a week or so.
