Snow Day! (well for some, unfortunately for us the sheep don't take a snow day)
The snow has been coming down in Western NY today!
View of the barn from the round bale storage! at 10AM this morning!
We have taken advantage of the winter months coming in to start catching up on all the little projects that have been on our list. The guys have been working on transforming an old granary into a barn to raise weaned lambs. Hopefully we'll have pictures once the project is finished!
Also on the list was getting this year's guard dog puppies spayed! We are lucky to have a great mature pair of Pyrenees/Anatolian Shepherd guard dogs, who gave us three female pups this summer, and with lots of intact dogs on the farm we decided it was best to get them spayed before they go out to pastures with the flock this spring. So add that to the list for this winter!
Along the same lines, they finally got the grain bins put up alongside the barns, so we can store all the corn for the barn lambing ewes and winter pasture supplementation in pest proof, sealed storage, with easy access. :-)
So everyone celebrate the joys of winter snow! and winter projects!
