Sand Hill Thicket Farm

Tales of stunning sunsets, happy sheep, and peace and quiet on a 10-acre farm in Northeastern Kansas.

When There Are Cute Ewes Across the Alley

Poor Racoon! He almost can't stand it and flirts endlessly across the alley with the ewes. There are two open (not pregnant) ewes and they apparently smell intoxicating!

Ice Storm Isaiah

Thanks a lot, Isaiah! What an ice storm! Although it wasn't the worst ice storm ever, it did knock our power out for 8 hours. We got power back on at midnight last night. Thank you, linemen!

This Afghan Took Me 20 Years to Make!

Finally! Holy sheep! It took me 20 years to make this afghan. I'm so glad to finally be finished! And not just 95% finished, 100% finished!

Happy New Year!

The sheep wish you a non-monochromatic year of adventure, change, and new grass! We are missing Mother Nature's color and vigor as we now head into the depth of winter. Throw some wool on and stay warm!

Round Bales & Orange

This is your introduction to our newest feline, Orange. Someone dumped him off at our house. He is very obviously someone's very annoying house cat.

Slow Food & Air Fryers

Okay, I'm opinionated about instant pots and air fryers. I'm anti-instant pot, but I'm on my way to being converted to an air fryer believer. (The jury is still out until I've attempted egg rolls in the air fryer.) I will note that I would never have purchased an air fryer, but I did receive one as a Christmas gift from my kitchen-gadget-loving mother.

Merry Christmas!

Black Friday

Typically, anything I'm looking for isn't even on sale, and anything I'm looking for most likely can't be purchased locally either. I also like avoiding indoor and outdoor traffic, fist fights in parking lots, and the flu.

The Ewes Are In-Lamb

The ewes were bred starting the 18th of October. So, we will start watching for lambs to drop around March 12. I'm so excited! However, I may have gotten carried away, or rather the ram got carried away, because we have the propensity for 7-21 lambs.
