Our year on the farm is quite dependable. Lambs come in mid-winter and it keeps my Farmer very busy and on his toes feeding animals, watching over birthing ewes, researching maladies and sheep obstetrics, and more. He is feeling so much better physically after the hip replacement surgeries of the past two years. It is fantastic to see him bending over, picking up hay, and actually thinking towards the future about how he can keep this all going so his body doesn't fail him. I'm hoping he makes some good choices but you know men -- can't tell them anything!
He is really enjoying watching the sheep farming videos by Sandi Brock in Canada. She has a YouTube channel which has 101,000 subscribers. Evidently many people are interested in sheep farming. She keeps it very real and talks about all the things that happen on a farm including some of the sad and dirty parts that most on-line sheep farmers don't show on their IG feeds. I appreciate this because so much of livestock farming is so different than what the public perceives it to be or let's say wants it to be.
We wish you a Happy and Healthy 2020 -- and beyond.
