Brrrrrrrrr, we are still having some seriously cold weather. This was the weather report from this morning…
Our water was froze up and it was freezing in our house but outside the sheep didn’t seem to mind too much…
Good thing they are hardy Icelandic’s! This week they’ve been getting extra hay and always have access to the barn and sheds…
The chickens don’t seem to care for it at all though…
Good thing there are lots warm sheep taxi’s to keep them warm!
BTW, our water is going again and we should be starting to warm back up! Oh ya, we should start lambing any day now, hurry up warmer weather…
Sharing with friends at~
We still have about 17 ewes to lamb, give or take a few depending on how many of the yearling ewes caught last fall. This lambing season has just zoomed on by and we’re about done!
And the chicks are even growing and in their big chicken feathers now.

Another very busy week here…
Finn, was the first to arrive and had a perfect delivery. Little Fern was the last to make her appearance. Her front feet were coming out but no head. She had it way off to the side and twisted back. At 2 am I was convinced this was a headless lamb… I was about to give up fishing for it when it last I caught hold of it. It took several more minutes trying to align it correctly and finally pull her out. She span right to life and got busy looking for something to eat!
Drifa is such a good mamma. She was holding perfectly still while letting little Finn nurse and was licking little Fern off right after she was born. Fern, while trying to figure out her legs kept going backwards and Drifa would stretch her neck a little further and keep cleaning and holding perfectly still!
While headed to the Badlands, we spotted these horses grazing peaceably alongside the dirt road we were driving on. They looked so pretty against the rugged landscape of the Badlands.
