Hay and Stone
We’ve been working on getting ready for winter which is fast approaching.
Three truck loads of sharp sand for spreading on the driveway over the winter so that the milk truck can get up and down the mountain.
Two loads of 5″ minus stone for the south field road to help with soft spots so that cedar posts and wood chips can be delivered up to the plateau.
The rest of the winter hay delivered and positioned up in the fields for easy feeding out over the deep snow months.
In the box on the front of the tractor climbing the hill in the picture are gilt grower pigs. These are the extras from the group of breeders who shipped west last week. We hadn’t known exactly how many pigs would be going until the last minute so the veterinarian had done health certificates for extra gilts and sows just incase. This let me then pick the very best to load up on Halloween for the long trip westward. They arrived Sunday afternoon, safe and sound, twenty-one Sugar Mountain Farm breeders ready to make a new home in the Rocky Mountains.
That is not mists hanging in the air – it’s snow. It’s unscheduled snow. I had planned for no snow until December 21st. This was my plan. Apparently someone else planned otherwise. Hopefully it won’t stick.

Scientists have developed vaccine against Ebola that is 100% effective in trials.
They did this by genetically engineering in the genes from the common cold with the Ebola genes.
The common cold, one of the most infectious and easily spread diseases known to mankind.

What could possibly go wrong?
