Thanksgiving and Wednesday have been snow days. We got a little over a foot of snow between yesterday and today and it is still snowing now, Thursday night as I write this. Today we worked on getting the roof on the next shed. Last evening I moved a large round 4×4 bale of hay into the first of the new pig dens and let the pigs in. They were quite excited to see the fresh hay and their new sleeping space. It is a pole shed built into a cutout in the uphill side of one of the terraces we’ve carved into the hill. It is a bit small to sleep all forty of them. We should be done with another tomorrow and then they can spread out more.
The snow has gotten deep enough that Ben and Will were snow-boarding on the hill in the south field this afternoon. It got cold enough last night that the snow from yesterday formed a good base and then the new snow today made for wonderful power boarding.
We had some excitement out at the end of the south field last night. Something got one of our lambs. It is clawed up but looks like it may survive. The dogs bought the sheep back to the house and pens at a run and then wouldn’t let any of the animals back into the field. It was dusk and snowing hard so we couldn’t see anything. Looking at the lamb today my guess is bear. We are missing the lambs twin. Kita, Cinnamon, Kia and Lili went with me out to look around today. All we found was a place where there was blood under the snow. Dogs noses are amazing. It was a beautiful walk if somewhat morbid. Time to bring the animals in from the pastures to the winter garden corrals.
Guns don’t kill – Bullets do.
