This Saturday we will be at Ohio State of Mind in Roscoe Village, Coshocton. We will be debuting new soaps we have been developing, along with some other projects. We are also bringing some lambs with us! Can't wait to see you there.
When new babies arrive there is always a lack of sleep. Two years ago my little one was born and some days I would wake up planning my nap for that day.
The past few years with lambing have been very similar to having a newborn human. I would wake up every two hours, walk out of the barn, shine a flashlight on all the sheep and either a) finding nothing and drag myself back to bed OR b) see feet/a lamb and go running to the house to wake Jesse.
This year I had a different plan of attack.
This weekend we started fencing in a new pasture.
Currently our property only has three fenced acres of pasture. As we grow our herd we need more acres to provide high nutrient, dense pasture to the sheep. When completed this will add another eight fenced acres. We hope to have this completed before the end of the month when we turn the sheep out for the first time for 2015.
Marking where the posts will go.
A little progress at the end of the day.
