Full of gratitude for all the cool, frosty nights and mild, sunny days of this PNW November, a gift when it could be raining every. single. day.
Enjoying quiet and solitude as it's nearly time to settle in for the winter. Life has been nonstop since we arrived here four months ago and I'm ready for a bit of time to decompress, before making plans for Spring.
Morning walks with Reginald and Yuli affords snow capped views of the Canadian Rockies and golden leaves of deciduous trees within the conifers on the "hill" across the street from the farm.
Plant starts are thriving on the south facing end of the porch.
The barn is nearly set-up for the entire flock; quite a few ewes in standing heat this weekend, lots of tail wagging, circling, sniffing, nickering. I'm keeping careful notes on who is bred and when, hoping ewes will be settled the first time around.
Photo 5: Dundee, the fine fleece Shetland ram, is looking for a new home and a group of ewes to breed ASAP.
