Spring Fever!

You just can't beat a "top down" kind of day...!

Just one more...

As I said, it was a perfect day for picture taking and Bubba can be quite the accommodating subject.  Isn't he just gorgeous?  He can be quite the ham!

Finally spring!

We had a beautiful weekend outdoors finally- two days of sunshine and no rain! So we took advantage of it to get some pictures around the farm. I love just sitting out in the pasture and letting the sheep come to me. And of course, who can pass up a very photogenic hen!

One of my favorite shots from the weekend is Bubba and Megan, one of our Lincoln yearlings. She was very interested in him.

A very nice young photographer came out yesterday and took several hundred pictures if the sheep & dogs. Can't wait to see how they turn out once she's done. Sara's got a great eye and I think a bright future! Here's a link to some of her pictures.

Spring update

Wow- it’s been since the end of March? Guess I really did get busy this spring. Had a quick trip to Calgary in April to work on the database pages and to get data updated for that facility. Two days of travel for three days of work, but when I left we were fairly well caught up. It’s been 2 years but we’re finally getting there with the amendments. I do love going up there- the storms are awesome- you can see them for miles as they move in.

We ended up the season with 25 lambs- the last one is a little white Lincoln ram. One of the first to be born has already been sold, 24 more to go…! We didn’t lose any to hypothermia. I am SO relieved!

The next thing I need to do is start shearing…anyone up for some aerobic exercise? By the time I’m done, my arms are usually in pretty good condition! Nothing like wrestling a 200 lb sheep while holding a sharp powered object in one hand!
