Quick catchup

Spring (which has finally arrived here) is probably the busiest time of year for us around here. So, it's made it a bit difficult to update the blog. I have taken a number of pictures and hope to get them uploaded soon.

Shearing was at the end of April and was very successful. I used Mist and Cash for their first time in the shearing pens. They both did extremely well and I was very happy with them. They have both also helped with lambing and have really stepped up to the plate.

Lambing is going well. A lot of singles this year but after the winter our livestock have had I'm just grateful that they all bred up so well. We've had 150 ewes lambs in 2 1/2 weeks so I'm pleased.

It's also branding season and it's the biggest social time of the year for us around here. It's hard work, no doubt, but the joy of it totally trumps the amount of work. Watching Dustin and Brady mature into such great help is also a benefit!

I hope to get a more detailed post up soon!
