BOISE, Idaho — Around 2,100 to 2,200 ewes and lambs were dropped off Thursday in the Avimor foothills. The sheep, which were dropped off by Emmett Ranch John Peterson, will be grazing on the rangelands and open space areas for the next three weeks.

Thursday marks the day where the sheep will be grazing on natural feed and going into the high country in the Boise National Forest for spring and summer.

Avimor residents and trail users should use normal caution around the sheep and guard dogs. Pets should be put on a leash if the sheep are encountered on a trail. Mountain bikers should get off their bikes and walk through the herd.
