Above is a photo of Sydney I took a couple of days ago during our cold snap. I was noticing how well you could see her breath in the cold air and sunshine. Today we got to catch her to give her a shot. Both Tom and I are ill with nasty colds so this was a good time. We finally were able to get her into a pen in the barn and give the immunization safely. But this is what it is like trying to manage a farm in January.
While I was finishing up the animal chores, I started noticing the thick wool on the sheep (between coughing a lung up). I particularly noticed Wendel and Harlen (brothers from another mother).
Harlen’s wool is strikingly long and thick,
as well as being a pretty golden color.
Looking forward to spring with its warmer weather, flowers, and pretty shorn wool.
