The animals at the farm

Källagården is “guarded” by two playfull and child-friendly little dogs named Yazzi and Milou. They are both Danish Swedish Farmdogs born in 2008 and 2012 respectively. Milou is Yazzi’s doughter, a little copy of himself but with some Jack Russel and Dachshund blood as well. Their best friends at the farm are the black farm cats Elvis and Morris.

Ever since the late 1970s there has been sheep on the farm. They were not many, but enough to keep the grass and heather short on the ski slope by the fringe of the wood. In 2008 we decided to go in for some more sheep and not only use them as “lawn movers”. We brought in 20 ewes of the Gute sheep race. The ewes lambed and today, depending on what time of the year you count, the herd is either several times bigger, or the same. Lambing usually takes place around April. The sheep keep our fields and pastures free from overgrowing.
