Fall is here with a vengence...winter is coming
The one advantage to the arrival of winter is that you can no longer kid yourself into believing that you can: paint the garage and the barn, build a new shed, build a new garden, plant some fall vegetables etc etc. With the cold weather is the realization that winter is here and you can no longer prepare.
Our lambs are now weaned and slowly are heading out to either new homes (or new freezers). We sold one purebred Tunis as a breeding ram and while are still open to sell the other Tunis ewe lambs we have no problem keeping them ourselves.
We just purchased a new Terminal ram - Winston is a purebred Hampshire ram that is long as a freight train and promises to add a lot of meat on our market lambs.
Our horses are content being pasture potatoes and we have not had time to do much other than that. Two are heading out for retraining this winter.
We have been trying to declutter and every trip to the dump, scrap metal, recycling plant makes me happy.
