run around

Where have I been? Well, this time of year is always a busy time as we run around like squirrels getting ready for winter. I have been hauling a... I mean HAY! Hauling hay!

See? 150 bales all stacked and stored. Why yes, my back is killing me, and that's even with making my kids do most of the work.

In addition to getting the hay in, we have gotten the rams and ewes into their breeding groups. Isaac (who is wearing a blue marking crayon, can you tell?) was quite a busy boy today.

We have trimmed everyone's hooves and checked everyone's condition and gotten everyone into coats that fit them.

Let the hay do its worst! All the fleeces are protected, at least until someone rips their coat off or steps out of it or any other way they conspire to drive me nuts.

In addition to hauling hay, I have also been hauling butts from pillar to post. So I have been watching a fair amount of this:

and quite a bit of this:

and some of this too.

All this to-ing and fro-ing makes it a wee bit tough to blog, what with the hay chaff, moving vehicles, running kids, etc. Bear with me, I hope to be back in a more regular pattern soon.

It'll probably be around the time cross-country season ends, whenever the heck that is.
