It's been a long fall. Had a cold that lasted most of October. September was mild and got a lot of stuff done outside. No bugs to contend with, yeah! We've been getting a lot of rain this month. Fields all have small ponds in them. I'm getting ready to get the breeding organized. Will take photo's and post a list as soon as everything is final.
August has been cold, hot, and wet. My hubby broke his leg at the end of July, so all outside jobs have been put on hold. Haven't been able to get hay in our barn, but it's been purchased. Never a dull moment.
Purchased an awesome fawn katmoget ram lamb from Steve Rouse this summer. He is polled and carries spots, out of Sheltering Pines J'adore x Sheltering Pines Fanfare. I've never felt fleece so soft, can't wait to do a sample on him.
It's mid April and there is still snow on the ground. Lambing has begun. Photo's will be added on the lamb page as they arrive or I get better photo's. The black lambs are hardest to photograph for me. Sorry, I'll keep trying.
February was a bear of a month. We had so much snow it was as high as the fencing. Needless to say, we had to bring most of the sheep in the barn. Only Reese's group stayed out as their shelter is very large and we could just feed them inside there.
Buddy's and PJ's group are all indoors, I had to split them up into 4 different stalls and photo's are not very good.
Well you know it's cold when you go out to feed the sheep and they are no where to be found! Usually everyone is lined up waiting for me. Not today. They waited until I got into the paddocks and then they came to greet me.
Temps are below zero, with wind chills from -10 to -25.
