Ride it Out

February 16, 2016

It was -7 F as we loaded the remaining 15 lambs from last year's crop. The sheep didn't mind the cold. It's that time of year when you just ride out winter until it gives up.

While at the livestock auction, we warmed up with a homemade bun.

The lambs averaged 160 pounds (that's too heavy for the top price) and brought $1.25 a pound.

We start lambing in April and I vow to sell everything before winter this year!
