What in the heck have I been up to?

My time since Jefferson has been a blur. Lots of work with the landscaping and constant lawn care (read mowing) due to our record rainfall this summer with nice cool temps for the BlueGrass to grow.

I've also had a roommate since the end of August named Adam. He's from Milwaukee and a total city slicker. He's very eager to learn and loves the farm. He came with to the Jefferson show and helped me show the BFLs, Mules and the Shetlands. He also helps me get my every increasing list of things "TO DO" around the farm somewhat back in check. He's a Godsend. I'm very blessed to have his help and eagerness to learn. It makes farming that much more fun when you have someone to share it with :)

Most evenings after he gets off of work we tend to tackle projects. This past weekend we fenced in a several acre pasture for the rams. Its split down the middle so I can move them between pens. My current ram pen is ridiculously small in comparison and I'm eager to get the few boys I'm retaining and not using this fall over to that pen. I just need to put up the gates and their panel shelter and it'll be ready! Projects go so much faster when I have help that is ambitious!

Having a roommate to chill with, cook with, eat with, b.s. with, getting projects done outside, house projects etc. hasn't given me a lot of time to 'talk sheep' to my sheep friends and for that I apologize. I'm not trying to ignore you, honest!

Tell Adam hey for me.

With my work load continuing to pile up, and less time to spend with the sheep, I am offering the following: My entire flock of BlueFaced ...
