Good Morning. It's a chilly one at 4 above with a windchill of -7. It's going to warm up, though, to 19, which is a decent temp for Dec.
Well, we've added to the farm, again. We picked up four more Icelandic sheep, three ewes and a ram. The ram has to go back to his home in the spring, but the ewes are mine in trade for hay. What a blessing. They're from a wonderful friend who has decided to go into llamas instead of sheep. So critter count is now:
4 Angora goats
4 Dairy goats
6 Icelandic ewes
1 dairy heifer
3 beef heifers
7 more beef heifers on the way.
And 1 very spoiled cat.
My son took out an FSA youth loan and is buying the seven beef heifers. He already owns 2 beef heifers and the dairy heifer. The beef heifers he has are a black Angus cross. His new ones are a red angus crossed with Simmental and Gelveih. Nice looking girls. They should be here next week. So this weekend, I think we're going to reinforce our fenceline.
Have a wonderful day. Recognize the opportunities that God puts in your path.
