It’s lambing season on Bill Auger’s ranch on the western edge of Preston city. The new lambs are romping on the grass as it comes up through the sandy soil. And Auger is making sure his bum lambs are in good shape, as well as watching the ewes care for their new offspring.
“Watch this,” he said as he approached the fence that overlooked his ewes and lambs in the ravine below him. With a shrill noise and a roll of the tongue, the sheep and their lambs bounded to the place in the field where Auger would feed them.
He nimbly jumped on his four wheeler and pulled a small wagon with freshly loaded hay down the hill to a crowd of the animals.
