Much of the Same

This post has been in the works all week, and we've really struggled to get it done.  We had one almost spring-like day, but much of the week has looked like this.  Much like Bella, we've been plodding along.  The bred ewes are devouring 200 - 250 pounds of hay a day, cleaning up every last, little bit.  The hogget ewes are growing out and have been very entertaining of late when we arrive to feed.  Running through the snow, jumping up and down, they bring a smile and sometimes we can't help but laugh out loud.  And, of course that brings us to the barn cats.  They are always eager to provide entertainment.   The latest toy has been a discarded box that has received so much cat love, we're reluctant to throw it away.
Hope you're having a wonderful morning, and not digging out from under too much snow.


  1. The snow makes for lovely pictures. But I am ready for Green! :)
    Have a good week!

  2. So glad I stumbled across your blog.....I am an avid knitter and spinner so I love wool and therefore love sheep...In fact, I did a post on sheep yesterday.....

    I look forward to keeping up with you and all that's going on with you at the farm...

  3. Gosh, you have what we had for the last two weeks... it will all go away soon, and there will be lots of new little lambs to make you laugh.

  4. I was going to say "Wow, that's a lot of hay per day" then I realized I am feeding a bale in the morning and one in the evening, that's about 200+ pounds a day as well. Good luck with lambing, hang in there Spring will be here soon.

  5. Same here 2 bales a day ... hoping it slows with the up coming warmer weather.
    So pretty, but you can keep it there with you.
    Warm wishes being sent your way!

  6. Bella looks like she's getting tired of the snow... and a cat in a box, what is it with their fascination with them?? Thank you for joining in 'Rurality Blog Hop #5' Hope to see you next Wednesday for #6...
