April Showers

rain on apple blossoms

have been delaying projects on the farm.  We did managed to fix the barn faucet which was leaking but are on hold with rototilling the garden.  As soon as it starts to dry out, it rains again.  The sheared sheep are not happy with the rain, and the grass is not growing as well as we would like.  We have started rotating the cows and rams and will start rotating the sheep and goats tomorrow, but there is not much grass so we will have to continue to supplement with hay.

The skinny sheep and goats will be held back and fed hay and some grain separately.  Gertie, the rescued goat, is finally plumping out and has good hair growth more than one year after we got her back.  She still is psychologically damaged though.
