|It snowed last night.|
|Hay pile as of 2/25/2010. The sheep only use about 1/2 bale/day |
and there are 19 bales left.
On a positive note the sheep are looking pretty good. I still need to worm the five adults and band the other male baby. So on Monday Annmarie is going to have to go out and help me. We will chase them all into the barn and close the door so they cannot get away and we will get it all done. I chased the sheep out this morning just so I could get a picture. I also got to hold and pet on the baby girl. She did not get out of the feeder fast enough and I caught her (she climbs into the thing instead of eating from the side).
Yes, the dog had to get in the picture. She wanted to play with the babies but no one would let her get close. All the babies are hiding in front of the flock. Sprout (our brussel griffin ankle biter size dog) went out to the barn with us (Bailey, chocolate lab and I) and then proceeded to disappear. I called for 30 minutes and walked down to my in-laws house, but no Sprout. I even started yelling "cheese" at the top of my lungs. He loves cheese and will come to that call after ignoring every thing else. We really should just change his name to "Cheese". I am sure he would come much better. He stayed outside for over 2 hours. He was covered in frost and snow when he finally showed up. I put him in his kennel for some contemplation time.
I took this barn picture after I fed the sheep their hay. Eventually, the barn will not have a gaping hole in the roof!!
