Brief Birthday Trip

rain on ferry window

We took an overnight trip to Lopez Island for my birthday yesterday.  Above is the rain on the window of the ferry MV Chelan going to Lopez.  After we arrived we drove around checking out the sites.  Below are some sheep who have a nice view.

Ram Maintenance


Today we did our ram maintenance.  Always a challenge corralling and catching rams.  We trimmed their hooves and gave them copper supplement, worming medicine and CDT shots.  I checked their condition and conjunctiva color.  They were a little thin but not bad, and they had some hoof wall separation.  I am assuming this is related to be in a soggy field all winter.  I am hoping it dries out soon!  Above is Lewis enjoying his spa treatment, not.  He ended up getting cattywampus in the sheep chair.
