Winter arrived today. It was 17 degrees here this morning and the ground is starting to freeze. Turned on the water heaters in the barn. Cleaned out the ram's barn today. Tomorrow he gets separated from the ewes. Sven (ram) and Jack Jr (wether) spend most of the year together in a small pasture and barn. The girls will be glad that Sven is out of their area; he never gives up hoping to find a ewe that is not bred yet. We have several ram lambs that run up to the gate to be petted. I wish that I could keep them all.
No snow on the ground yet, but that will be happening soon. I am skirting fleeces in the shop; I will have the fall fleeces done soon. Then I can tackle last spring's fleeces. Between building projects, health issues of older parents, and our three adult children I never got to the spring fleeces.
