But by the grace of God, we had no losses to heat or disease. A couple of the lambs suffered with a bout of anemia but all in all we made it through unscathed.
We also had our Sheering Fest at the farm this past weekend. Great BBQ (thanks to Georgie) the man can make a mean pork roast (or two or three)! My mom chimed in with her Cuban black beans and rice (deeeelish!!) My little contributions were fresh pumpkin bread and hot cider! After all I had to be in the paddock with the sheep being sheered. We did have a lot of hands on deck so a big shout out to Cathy who reminded me I wanted to write the sheep names on the burlap sacks! Yikes! I would have kicked myself after that.
Kids didn't want to miss any of the sheering!! Well, in between climbing into the hay loft!!
