OUR MONTH – NOVEMBER
The brand new lambing shed is almost finished and ready to fill with fresh bedding and jugs ( small maternity pens) for the younger mothers and their lambs. There are two new calves on the ground, with more coming soon.

It all speaks of abundance, something that any farmer/rancher will get a flush of pleasure from. We hope you winter is filled with such abundance.
Yesterday as we were screwing steel siding to the shed, amidst laughter and jokes, I watched the two bulls ‘playing’, a calf nearly as big as its mother still nursing while she ate hay, the sheep were laying out in the sunshine soaking up the heat, the dogs were getting under foot and into trouble.

I watch Eathon and Cole visit with other young boys and girls who come to the ranch and I honestly feel bad for them. So many of them would love to spend the day, the week or a lifetime digging in and working on and with the earth. There is something about dirt, sweat and good, honest work the reaches deep within us and satisfies some craving. Pondering this and dreaming
