We survived two blizzards, ending up with 21" of snow. It was actually nice to get stranded with the family. We cuddled on the couch, watching movies and waiting for the power to go out. And now, only a few days later, we have 60F degrees and entering tornado season. I think this is what I will miss the most about Kansas. At least I will get to see one more swing season. Will have to take Small Farm Girl tornado chasing.
The sheep have discovered my ramp. They are now using it to knock at the back door and yell for their treats.
We have had 5 lambs born so far. Their births are far in-between. We even had our first set of live twins! My getting a photo of them is proving hectic. I am just not as fast as I use to be.
I have been doing a lot of research on laws in Kentucky. They are not as farmer friendly as Kansas, but there is some hope that it will get better. I am not allowed to take any of my birds. Horse neighbor is taking in a few of them. I also may not bring in a sexually active bull. That means Winston will be sent to butcher, and I will need to find a replacement once we have settled in.
You remember the stock trailer we traded for? We had yet to take it out. However a friend of ours asked to borrow it. They were headed south to pick up a couple of colts. On the way down, the trailer was bouncing and wagging on those awful Oklahoma road, and sheared the bolt of the ball hitch, sending the trailer across four lanes at 70 mph into the only clearing for miles. Luckily no one was hurt. Sheriff told them that they were the second ones that it had happened to that day.
I will leave you with some photos. Hope all is well with you.
