This week has finally brought some much needed sunshine and dry days. Spirits here on the homestead have been much brighter with the passing of all those gloomy days. The barn was scraped this week in preparation for shearing which was to happen today. Unfortunately it had to be rescheduled but at least the barn is clean!  We are waiting for a dry stretch in the weather as the hay fields are ready to be mowed.
The animals are just dying to get out on the bigger pastures. The baby lambs are growing by leaps and bounds and the health of the ewes is the best it has been due to the cooler spring we have had. I hope this good start will make for an easier summer battling parasites. We will see. A few baby pics to enjoy..
