Is it just me, or does time seem to speed up during this time of year?
I have thoroughly been enjoying the warm weather and I am hoping that it last! The sheep have been enjoying lazy grazing days. Not much need to beat the heat so they have been more active.
I mentioned that that the girls talked us into market lambs for fair, next year. That means earlier lambs. We put a few of the Tunis ewes in with the Ram. We use a Ram Harness, it marks the ewes that are bred so we can keep track of who and when. Just thought I would explain, in case you were wondering about the red marker on their wool.
They are making hay this week, we are very excited to be getting a third cut this year. Hopefully, we will find enough room in the barn. It is getting a little crowded!
You can tell it is Autumn, the taller grasses in the pastures are dying off, the soybeans are turning shades of yellow and our lovely corn hedge is changing color. I love the corn that grows in the field across the road, it is like having our own personal privacy fence along the front of our property! It is taller than I ever remember it being. Good year for the crop farmers! I always miss it when it gets harvested.
I hope you are all enjoying Autumn as much as we are!
