Spring Open Barn Day!

Saturday, May 13, 2017  Spring Open Barn day is today! High near 60° today and 0% chance of snow. :) Yesterday I let Romulus into the far back pasture and then let the rest of the boys in one at a time and so far so good.  He seems much…

A magical place

Wednesday April 19, 2017  A dusting of snow greeted us this morning and all our fully fleeced pacas are pleased. More snow is in the forecast for next week, so we'll keep out shovels out just in case they're right. I hope to spend some time inside Yaya's Yarn Barn…

Work and play on Tuesdays

Wednesday, April 5, 2017  Today I'm feeling grateful for a grandson who loves to do farm chores! Our new hay delivery was stacked rather high for me to reach and he effortlessly climbed to the top of the stack and sent down as many bales as I needed.  Nice! Then he helped…

We ❤️ spinners

 Sunday, March 26, 2017 A rather chilly Sunday will be perfect for moving hay today. It's 23° as I type but should warm up nicely later today.  A fun bunch of spinners (and one dear husband) came yesterday and left here happy with their fibery treasures.  The rain did not dampen…

The ides of March

Wednesday, March 15, 2017  Nearing 60° today? Oh my! I need a few more days of warm and dry to be able to tackle the frozen mess in front of the barn but we're getting close. There is a slight hue of green appearing as the snow recedes and I must…

Daylight savings and new roving

Sunday, March 12, 2017  Did you remember to turn your clocks ahead? <yawwwwn> Kind of silly I think, but they didn't ask me. I did some spring cleaning of my fiber areas yesterday in anticipation of shearing this year and I forced myself to relinquish many bags of roving that…

More meltdown :)

Saturday, March 4, 2017  Well, temps stayed above freezing all night so meltdown should be significant today. Yay! The alpacas have confined themselves to safe paths just outside their barns, I hope today they'll feel safe enough to venture out on to the melting snow.  I'll be spending time in…

Snowy Monday

Monday, February 27, 2017 We're currently being slammed with yet another snow storm. It's really piling up out there and is expected to continue most of the day today. I'd like to turn on the outside cam for you but it stopped working and I think I saw some damaged wires, so I've ordered a replacement cable…
