We’ve been playing a lot of “One of These Things Is Not Like the Other” for the last week or so. With the heavy snowfalls and the apparently inherent ‘es-capability’ of hoggets, there has been an on-going game of musical pastures. Each morning at feeding time everyone is moved back to their appointed pasture, and the next morning everyone is back in the barn paddock. This wouldn’t necessarily be a bad thing except for the varying nutritional needs of the different groups. We didn’t really have the time or energy to discover and repair the escape routes before the next round of snow began. So for now… musical pastures it is 🙂
A Friday ritual.
A single photo – no words – capturing a single moment from the week
A simple, special extraordinary moment.
A moment to pause, savor and remember.

This post has been in the works all week, and we’ve really struggled to get it done. We had one almost spring-like day, but much of the week has looked like this. Much like Bella, we’ve been plodding along. The bred ewes are devouring 200 – 250 pounds of hay a day, cleaning up every last, little bit. The hogget ewes are growing out and have been very entertaining of late when we arrive to feed. Running through the snow, jumping up and down, they bring a smile and sometimes we can’t help but laugh out loud. And, of course that brings us to the barn cats. They are always eager to provide entertainment. The latest toy has been a discarded box that has received so much cat love, we’re reluctant to throw it away.
Hope you’re having a wonderful morning, and not digging out from under too much snow.

Don’t think for a moment that the Moving into March walk went unnoticed by the farm dwellers. They definitely recognize when there is anything out of the ordinary, and are never at a loss for words.
