We have SNOW today. It started about 2pm and now at 6pm it has dropped about 4 - 5 inches of the powdery white stuff. It was not fun doing chores while the big flakes were coming down, walking thru the snow, trying to find the white sheep.
Yesterday we got some ewes sorted off from the bunches that were getting ready to lamb. We have about 75 up at the barn and shop. I spread straw in both places, got feeders put in the pens and all is well. So far there are no lambs as of tonight.
We loaded a flatbed trailer with 11 round bales of hay. I drove it to town to weigh it afterwards and then it was unloaded at the ranch.
It looks like none of us will be getting any time off for a while till all the lambs are born. Lambing will continue thru April.
I took a picture of the backyard and one of the birdhouse out front tonight so you can see how much snow we are getting.
