Meet the next newest family member.....

This is Moo and she came just after I shared the pic of Baa (who now has a name)..........maybe she was a twin or just had a neglectful mother....
Moo is a girl and Baa is a boy.
Fed them tonight with Boy Wonder we did one reach.... then went to put out lick blocks (think of it as a vitamin/mineral boost for the sheep essential when very very dry) and check dams which are getting very low with muddy edges.....had another couple of sheep stuck in the mud...... One dead one alive...... Boy Wonder got the one that was alive..... The dead one I dragged up the dam bank..... Was not really in farm work clothes still my nice town work clothes... The things you end up doing... I was only supposed to be driving.....Oh well jobs are done..... Now to find a frozen meal or 3 for dinner....
I always freeze extras for this purpose......
Catch you later....

  1. Moo and Baa are beautiful babies but it's sad about the reason you have them. I hope for rain for you. You can surely have some of ours if we could only redirect those clouds. Your ranch posts are always interesting to us city folk.

  2. Moo is beautiful. Farm life can be so rewarding and so tough! I miss the good parts, but will never miss the sad parts. I'll never forget the day I looked into my neighbor's pasture and saw what I thought was a fawn, but soon found out their pony had foaled in the night. They didn't even know she was carrying. We named her "Surprise"! Those are the good parts. I find myself wishing for rain for you once again. Do take care!

  15. Looks like you've been busy with everything. I just love how your Lucy blocks are turning. So fun to see fabrics that I am familiar with and may still have in my stash! So sorry to learn that it has not been raining much in your area. Wish I could send you some of our rain. There isn't a day that goes by that we are not experiencing rain. I'll take it any day over a drought. Keep well my friend! Cheers!
