I’m away from home at the Michigan Vet Conference this weekend. I want to get a post up but don’t feel like saying a lot so I thought it would be a good time to post some pictures. These are all from the last few months (some are from fall). I’ll take advantage of the hotel’s wireless and upload these now instead of fighting with my connection at home. Enjoy!
This is from early fall. Brian built this calf shelter in one day. I had mixed feelings about treated lumber and decided it is better for us than replacing/rebuilding every few years. I was so proud of him. 🙂
My first every meat loaf. I’ll post the recipe someday. It was a special request from Brian when I announced that I’d like to start making a meal plan. He said it “tasted like meatloaf” which is what I was going for!
Brian’s latest project – a new sheep feeder!! We used the plans found here and he made it in just an hour or two. Works great and saves a lot of hay waste.
They have hay 24/7. That is how they stay warm. They have been doing great even in this extreme weather, with only a couple wind blocks. The four of them can eat a round bale in 2 or 3 days in this kind of weather.
I hope you enjoyed getting a glimpse in to our life during the past few months. It can be kind of crazy around here but we (usually) think it is worth it. How do these pictures compare to scenes from your own life? Which pictures do you like and want to know more about/see more of?
I’ll have a more substantial post up sometime soon!
