Next on the Agenda

Shearing begins Wednesday evening.
Then sheep to auction.
Then our trip to Utah.
Then lambs to the butcher.
And then finally just for poor old Blue - breeding season. It's been a tough wait for him. These cooler nights and shorter days make a ram...ah... frisky, yes that's the word, frisky. I just hope the fences can withstand his friskiness. They've taken quite a beating in the past week. It's not all his fault if the fences come down. I've seen what those girls do to him. They're tormentors.

The hay is in the barn

Oh, what a relief it is! There's hay in the barn. It's filled to the rafters. I've held my breath all summer waiting for this. It looks nice and it smells wonderful. Ewe girls are going to eat good this winter.

The dog I live with...

...is not the same dog that you see when you visit. As you see in the photo, the dog I live with can be calm and relaxed on occasion. This is his chair in the computer room. He often sleeps and snores while I'm on the computer.

All Hands on Deck

Brad and I have scrubbed the deck and are now staining it. This is a pain in the butt. Didn't feel we should spray the stain onto the wood, painting will get us better coverage. All those posts have a lot of surface area. It feels like it'll be along time before we're done.
