Last November we had record breaking snowfall, and cold temps. This year it has been mild.
Today I was out in town and most people did not have coats on. December 1st and people are still in "sweater weather" mode.
I will take it!
I took these pictures after we had our first winter storm.
The snow lasted less than a week.
|I am pretending I do not see that burr in her fleece...|
Winter chores are in full swing,
even with the warmer weather,
we are still in hay feeding season.
Round bales again this year,
which cuts our work down by quite a bit.
We are still looking for the best round bale, hay feeder,
that will give us cleaner fleeces.
If they would only just eat from the round bales,
the lady like way, instead of diving in head first.
With the warmer weather, the sheep have been doing great.
I was thinking the ewes that had been shorn, would need to be in the barnyard area by now, but they are still out on pasture.
A reminder that I need to put up a bird feeder.
