The fog was really heavy here yesterday morning.
So I decided to ride down to the lake. It is whooping crane and Sandhill crane migration time. They fly right through central Texas, headed to the coast. There are only 200 pairs of whooping cranes in the entire world. There had been reports of them in the area.

No luck finding any cranes, but I did get this cool shot of some deer grazing! The fog gives the photo a cool look!

Really proud of my lambs this year! This is the first time I am keeping any replacement lambs. I’ll sell a few to my loyal customers, but most will stay.

It was a long day yesterday getting them all separated from their mothers and moved to the front pasture. The screaming was intolerable, but it is much better today.

Zeus is on duty, there have been reports of 2 big bobcats just across the street from where the lambs are.

Walter our Ram is also up there. But he will be going to his new home next month!

Happy Friday! Off to a dog trial this evening and tomorrow morning! 🙏🏻❤️

He is just 2 months old. He will make someone a nice ram! He is built very nice! Weaning time soon!

Check out this easy-to-understand chart from our friends over at the Wyoming Wool Initiative that details the process wool takes from the beginning of wool's journey, when it’s still on the sheep, to the time it winds up in your hands as a consumer.

I love a good old Texas sunset, especially when it includes some of my favorite things!

A classic for this time of year

For all of you who are knee deep in sheep, lambs, straw, Lamlac, spray marker and dosing guns and running on creme eggs and relentless!

Sheep are suicidal,
Simply born to die,
In the most awkward places,
Legs pointing to the sky,

As lambs, they'll drown in buckets,
Or get suffocated by their mum,
You'll catch it drawing dying breaths,
As you haul the t**t up off her bum,

The sickly ones are living,
The healthy ones drop dead,
There's suddenly an outbreak,
Of watery mouth throughout the shed,

The lambers have escaped,
And got into the feed store,
So you are merrily sprinkling,
Bicarb back and fore,

There's far too many triplets,
The pet pen’s fit to burst,
And balling hungry lambies,
Haunt your nightmares first,

The vets have got no rubber rings,
Your wellies have sprung a leak,
There's a ewe who's pinching everything,
And you've had 6hrs sleep this week,

The townie cousin's have just appeared,
They really want to help you see,
In their new and shiny boilersuits,
And they're going to stay for tea,

Lambing is a tricky time,
And wee things send you wrong,
So just hold on tight to your wits,
Thank fudge the season isn't long!
