No Spring Break on the Farm



Spring break.....

While others are vacationing in Florida we are at the farm watching for lambs.

With April being the month when most of our lambs are born, it has never been a time for a family getaway.

When I am plodding out to the barn at 11:00 p.m. in the cold pouring rain, to do lamb checks, some warmer weather and sunshine sound very inviting. 

April in Michigan has been cold, rainy, and occasional snow flurries.

Perfect weather for lambing...sigh





Dreary weather is a perfect time for fiber fun....






How was your Spring Break?

  1. Yes, I imagine you do need a break, but your kind of spring is a lot more productive. Sounds more fun to me than all the beaches in the land.
    Have a great week!

  4. Dreary, first of all remember when it was the Easter Holidays? We have had frustrating weather...it looks beautiful and sunny out but you open the door to artic cold winds! Even the poultry is grumpy! The plowing of the new gardens is done and hopefully this week the weather with get bearable....I can't face grumpy turkeys first thing in the morning! [Wonderful lamb b the way ]

    1. Grumpy turkeys is never good ;) The warmer weather is finally here, just in time for our busy lambing time.

  5. Our neighbours are waiting for lambs just now- a bit later with the cold weather here. We have had chicks, but obviously they are low maintenance in comparison to lambs. Hope you do get the chance for a rest (of sorts!) soon :-)

  6. I love that photo that circulates on FB of the beach scene and "This could be us but we have livestock." Cute lamb is a good trade though ;-).
