Fall Activities: aka, the glamorous life!

I don't think that we've ever featured this glamorous aspect of Wild Rose Farm life before ...... yes ...... spreading manure! We don't keep the sheep in the barn that much, so it's not as big a deal here as on some farms. We can get the job done using this little spreader that we picked up "gently used" several years ago. With the chore of spreading several loads of manure complete, it's parked here waiting to be hosed out & greased before storage for the winter. It was a beautiful bright, sunny, cool fall day here ---- perfect for the lambs!
