Back to Work

Life has been a little crazy! Family, work, and farm keeps us busy enough, but you throw planning a wedding in there and it makes it even more interesting. 

Fast forward, one of my babies is now married :) and the wedding was wonderful...





  now we are playing catch up around the farm/mill.


I have loads of fleece that need washed...






picked...



carded...



Once the roving is done, it needs to get listed online. I feel months behind! 

The pastures need mowed. 



The hay field is flooded, and we don't even have first cut up yet. 

Lambs are growing like weeds, hard to believe it is time to sort, and start weaning. 



After we catch up, (if we ever do) our barn is getting painted this year! (woo hoo)

What has you busy?

Cold and Wet Lambing Season




We might as well have had lambs in January with the way the weather has been this Spring!

Cold and wet, the worse conditions for lambing.

We have pens set up in the barns, which are full.  As new ones come in, we move the ewes and lambs from smaller pens to the bigger pens. 




So far our lamb count has been 
ram lambs-9
ewe lambs-1 (who was born today)

By the time the winter decides to give up, we may be done with lambing.





How is it going with your Spring babies?
