It was meant to be for me to take the six sheep from Enid back in November. They are really making paths because they are heavy enough to break through the snow and crust. I am keeping the backside of the barn closed because my Shetlands are so light they would be sliding all over in the back pasture. It is going to be brutally cold on Wednesday night and I'm worried about my ram and his wether buddies. There are three sheds that I will pack with 1st cut hay for them to hunker down in. I will also give them some cracked corn at the night feeding. I would bring them in the house if I could but not enough room! Ha, ha, HA!
We had such a great Christmas at our house. Darcy and David spent Christmas morning at their homes with their family enjoying Christmas. Jonathan drove the MOOVER bus until 1 p.m. so we planned Christmas here late afternoon. Both Rowan and Ella got new guitars for Christmas so there was a lot of strumming and singing going on! Declan had a remote helicopter and Austin a remote monster truck.. It was just a very fun filled time and I so enjoyed the whole day.
Life is good at the farm. I was able to get a load of 150 bales of 2nd cut hay delivered a couple of days after Christmas. Just a nice break in the weather to have the road out to the barn cleared so Stosh could back the trailer out there. There is nothing that makes me so happy as a barn full of wonderful hay. I thank Tammy from Wing and a Prayer Farm for putting me in contact with Stosh. He is such a nice man and has the very best hay. I know my sheep really love the hay and are doing very well this winter.
I am going to be setting up a "Needlefelting Club" here in Wardsboro and also will be advertising "NEEDLEFELTING PARTIES". I really enjoy teaching Needlefelting and it's a very relaxing hobby. I also have to start working on skirting lots of fleeces. It will soon be time to shear again and boy I will have some awesome fleeces this spring. Well this is it for now. Stay warm, healthy and safe this winter.
So-long from Maybelle MaMa.
