Jan 14, 2009

Today was COLD. The temp was in the low 20's and later in the day it started snowing. Henry and I worked on a fence in the lower pens. The ground was frozen about a foot down and it was hard to dig post holes. We only got 2 dug and it took a long time.

We had another lamb born this morning. The ewe didn't want to accept her, but after I got her in the barn and penned up in a smaller pen, she finally did. The lamb is black with a few white hairs in the face.

We have some more ewes that are going to have lambs soon. We will sort them tomorrow and get them to the barn so we can watch them closer.

I will go to Julesburg, CO tomorrow about 40 miles away to get chicken feed. After that, who knows what will happen.

Lauren said she is going to get some Muscovy ducks tomorrow. These ducks don't have a Quack. They just kind of squeak. I used to have a bunch of them and they are fun to have around.

I made a beaded hummingbird and here is a picture.
