We're Here

Saturday afternoon was spent breaking up the breeding groups and moving all the ewes back to the barn paddock.  Despite the snow and the bitterly cold wind, it went much better than we expected.  Usually we put up a moving lane to facilitate the moving process, but we didn't this time because of the weather.  Instead we opened the paddocks one at a time and led each ram back to the barn.  All the ladies followed their guy... success!  We kept our old guy, Liam, and young Fury at the barn with the ewes.  Hopefully that will work out as well as it did last year with Strider.
And so, with a hearty round of the song "We're all together again... We're here... We're here" everyone is settling in nicely.


  1. So beautiful, and love hearing about your adventures, and seeing shots of your beautiful sheep!

  2. The weather sure hasn't made things easy this year! Glad it went well for you!

  3. And here I am in the 60's! Want to trade weather? :)
