|Wild Rose Farm Ewe Lambs @ Afternoon Feeding|
Sunday, February 27, 2011
The weather warmed up today and the forecast is for heavy rain overnight & into tomorrow at Wild Rose Farm. Yuck. We always prefer to have the sheep on frozen ground, preferably snow covered, in the winter. They are quite warm enough in any weather and really won't come in to the barn. The snow cover just keeps the fleeces cleaner and that's a good thing!

Luckily, WRF left work early, headed for an appointment, & so made it home before it got bad, but the plows were already running.
I imagine that the ewes are all bedded down with a thick covering of snow on their backs ..... yes, they're well insulated and this doesn't bother them at all.
Here's one of our black sheep before turning in for the evening!

At this time of year, Wild Rose Farm is really glad that we lamb in late April/early May. Temps have been in the single digits the last few nights. Brrrrrr. The sheep are fine, but we're glad we aren't hauling water buckets to lambing pens now!

A quick note for anyone in the Pittsburgh area or the I79 corridor ...... the Pittsburgh Knit & Crochet Festival is next weekend! It will be crowded & admission is charged, but it's worth a visit if you NEED yarn & accessories! Have cell phone number in hand and planning to sync up with my old friend Linda somewhere in the crowd!
