It is fall here.  Damp, foggy morning as I walked to the barn to feed and water.  Rocky and Clyde (two of this years lambs) came up to the gate to be scratched.  I love the smell of hay and just the smell of the barn.  The barn is full of hay and straw - so we are ready for winter.  Sven, our ram, is in with the girls now.  I knew he was at the feeder by his smell.  He gets stronger as breeding season gets into full swing.  But I guess the smell is very attractive to the girls. 

I have a fire in the woodstove in the shop.  I am skirting fleeces there.  Got another lamb fleece done this morning.  As I work it gives me time to think - about life, the farm, our kids.
