Early Winter Feeding

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Our pasture has gone dormant for the winter.  Our sheep and goats have eaten just about every blade of grass so we’ve started feeding large bales of hay.  One thing different between this year and last is we had the 3+ acre annex property we purchased next door fenced.  It’s got a pretty nice singlewide trailer that we’re using both for spillover company and as a ceramic studio, a small barn, an orchard and a beat up storage building.  And lots of lush grass, woods and a spring.  We keep our young does over there and let the sheep in for the day.  They wait for us at the gate in the morning, and Jack loves to go find them and bring them home in the evening.

    No snow yet, Sandy. I’m so glad you’re using my turkey brine recipe! I bought my cider last week. 🙂
