May 16th

 Spring has sprung. The snow has finally left. The grass is greening up and growing. Flowers are popping up. We had only 4 ewe's bred. 2 ewes had twins and one ewe had a miscarriage, the other isn't due until June. That is all that is new for now.

2021 March

Sorry for the long absence folks.

Life happens and so we get distracted. I will just update you with the biggest events.

September and October was relatively quiet, then came November. Normally we do our breeding groups.

We lost our beloved Gabriel the week of Thanksgiving, he would have been 12 on Christmas day. 

The day after Thanksgiving I ended up in ER with a burst appendix. Recovery was several weeks due to my age.

Needless to say the breeding groups were scaled down greatly. 

By February the coyotes discovered there wasn't a LGD protecting our flock. Three full grown ewes were taken down. :(

They are watched closely now during the day and brought as soon as sun starts going down.

New to the farm however are two Karakachan puppies. A rare breed livestock dog from Bulgaria.

They are sweet as honey and smart as a whip. 

Hopefully we will have a couple of lamb this spring. Not as in the past years however.

Also new is a small little farm store to sell fleeces and yarn. Plus other crafts I don't know what to do with.

August 2020,

Summer has flown by. I lost my mom so did not do to much posting. But I'm back now.
Random photos throughout the last couple months.

Spring is taking its time getting here this year. We have been teased with some nice warm weather. Only to be fooled with some snow, but it melts quickly. LOTS of beautiful fine fleeced lambs this year. Check out the lamb page for more information.

Finally spring is here. It was a long winter. Now we have the Corid 19 virus to deal with, but keeping busy on the farm has always been social distancing. First lambs born March 29th.


Deer are all over.


First time herding.

Nov 2019

Time to get ready for winter. Got the sheep coats out and patched up. Once we start feeding hay we don't want all that stuff in their luscious wool.
