The Fort's sheep have returned!
 
52 sheep marched through an excited crowd of Legacy Park Family Festival attendees as they returned to their summer home of Peter T. Ream Historic Park on Saturday (June 2).
 
The sheep, kept in Stony Plain over the winter, were joined in their parade by two border collies. A third young collie is currently in training.
 
Residents are invited to come and visit the sheep throughout the duration of their grazing at the park.
 
"They like crab apples during crab apple season. They love them, even the ones that fall on the ground," said shepherd Kathy Playdon. "They like carrots, they like tree leaves... they love poplars, willows. Maples are one of their favourites." 
 
Playdon suggest keeping dogs away from the sheep.
 
The sheep will be at Peter T. Ream Historic Park in the afternoons from Thursday to Sunday and holiday Mondays for the rest of the summer. This is their 26th year in Fort Saskatchewan.
