Wild Rose Farm Winter Activities!

Wild Rose Farm Ewes Leaving The Barn
There's really not a lot going on with the sheep at this time of year .... we just removed the big Rambouillet ram from the ewes & put in a young Dorset x Rambouillet ram.  He is a "clean-up" ram in case anyone didn't get bred.  A lot of farmers do that as insurance in the event that some unknown problem occured with a ram settling his ewes.   We've never had a problem, but it pays to be safe! 
After spending breeding season in the barn with the lambs, llama Lisa was sent back out with the ewes.  Somestimes a ram will bother a llama & sometimes a llama will get in the way of the ram breeding process, so we separate them.  Lisa was scampering around, just happy to be free & out of the small barnyard.
Couldn't upload a picture when I put up this post the first time. Found this on Google "known issues".  Sheesh !!!
The photo upload icon is not appearing for some users on Internet Explorer. We're investigating the issue and will update this post as soon as we have more information.
In the meantime, you can workaround this issue by using a different browser (such as Chrome or Firefox) or temporarily switching to the Edit HTML mode of the compose editor.
