Hmmm, been a month + since I posted, lots going on, cousin and his wife were here for 5 days, one daughter came to visit for 4 days, sick for a week, and then cousin was back for 2 days. Add this to cold weather, new lambs, and issues with my truck, replacing one piece at a time, new battery, new starter, new alternator, getting a new truck one piece at a time.
Single little ram lamb born Nov. 22.
Snow last Saturday morning, was supposed to snow at 500 ft. but it is at about 1500, I like to look at it but glad it is up higher, I am at 463 ft.
Didn't see one ewe when I was feeding, found her with her lambs down in the ditch out of the wind, hmm, 2 more ram lambs. Out of the last 5 lambs, 4 are rams. Hope those stats change when it is time for the Shetlands to lamb.
And now wearing sleeves from an old sweatshirt and bedded down in the stock trailer.
Still debating about pulling out Christmas decorations, as much as I like them, it will be time to put them away so soon, but I will dig out some.
Hope everyone is staying safe, warm and dry,
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.
