Snow & Black Lambs (Video Works Now!)

First Snow & Killing Freeze

Summer Pasture

Oh, the joy of summer pasture! I am practically on vacation! As of this last weekend, the ewes and lambs have been put out on summer pasture and locked out of the barn. They have two big shade trees and a shelter for when it rains.
