It’s winter again. Our January thaw has ended. We got between 8-10 inches of snow last night. Today is the day to put the backup rams in with the ewes. So Ken had to shovel a path to open the ram pen gate. I was able to catch both boys fairly easily but Hadwin took Ken for a run and they ended up falling in the snow. Both are ok though and Hadwin is now trying to see if any ewes are in heat. Carey the other backup ram is also very strong and it took both of us to get him safely into his breeding pen. They will stay in for 3 weeks before they come out.

Snow is good, it provides our irrigation water for next summer so we like the snow. I’d just prefer it to come in smaller batches and not all at once.
