Little of This and Little of That…

The weather this morning...

The weather this morning...

More snow…sigh…at least it was warm outside this morning, I don’t mind the snow as much when the wind is not blowing and it’s fairly warm.  And at least it’s not drizzly rain, big snow flakes are much more pretty and cheerful plus it’s already melting!

One more picture of the new baby…
We’re thinking of a name for this little one, it’s a ‘B’ year so names that start with B are ones we’re entertaining.

Have I told you how much I dislike this trio of terrors?  Every time I go up to the barn they come running out and attack me!  They are about ready to go into the stew pot…

One more thing:
Notice Ragna’s horns below:

Her horns after...

Notice they are quite a bit shorter?  And the white fuzz?  Any guesses as to what happened?  A couple days ago I noticed a certain white dog being very friendly to this ewe, she just loves to have her face licked by him and just wags her tail like a little lamb nursing.  I thought how cute!  Then he started nibbling on her horns!  So I got after him , and didn’t worry about it too much after that.  I have seen these bigger ewes get after him when they have had enough and he backs off.  Yesterday Sawyer noticed her horns and asked how she broke them off, after looking at her and looking around to see where she might have got them caught, it dawned on me…Dugur!  I read somewhere about people putting cayenne pepper on eggs to keep dogs from eating them, so yesterday at feeding time I was able to paint a cayenne paste on the ends of her horns.  Hopefully that does the trick!
