The birds are chirping, the deer are out, and so are the sheep?? Yes, you heard right! Local shepards migrate their sheep past Tamarack Resort on West Mountain Road and you might be lucky enough to see them!

Livestock Etiquette

What do you get if you cross an angry sheep and a moody cow? An animal that’s in a baaaaaaaad moooooood. All jokes aside, you may encounter both animals along West Mountain Road this fall. Here are a few tips on how to interact with these animals.
  • The sheep are typically protected by Great Pyrenees or other working sheep dogs. They are not pets, they take their job seriously!
  • Mountain bikers should dismount from their bikes.
  • Walk your bike through the sheep and then continue on your ride.
  • Keep your pets on a leash.
  • If the working dogs approach you, talk to them and let them know you are a human and not a threat.
  • Approach cattle very slowly and give them time to move off the trail.
  • If a cow runs down the trail in front of you, stop and wait, and let the animal move off the trail.
  • If you see anyone harassing cattle, wildlife or wild horses, please notify the BLM or the Forest Service.
