Moving sheep to greener pastures.
After the good rains we've had, it was time to move the sheep
to fresh pasture.
Soon we will work them -- de-worm them --
and move them out to summer range.
By mid-May the yearling ewes will begin to have their lambs.
That's a beautiful sight to see!
Mamas and baby lambs out on green grass.
We are still getting calves, but we are nearing the end of that season.
We branded about 150 head of calves on Monday.
They will also go out to summer range in a few days.
I spent the day in the gardens, mulching, weeding,
and moving little plants to different spots.
I got the lawn mowed too.
I figured out a bird's song today.
I've been hearing it for days and days and it's the loveliest song.
I finally saw the bird to whom it belongs,
the White-throated Sparrow.
Click here if you want to hear the sweet songs too.
~~~~A gorgeous May day on the prairie! ~~~~
To the attentive eye, each moment of the year has its own beauty,
and in the same field it beholds, every hour,
a picture that was never before seen,
and which shall never be seen again.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
