Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to all our friends around America,
Zion,IL; Rhinelander,WI; Bowlus,MN; Minot, ND; Chicago,IL; Petosky, MI; Mountian View,CA; Rochester,MN; Tyler, TX and Franklin, TN to name a few locales of folks that view this blog.


I took the pictures below a little while ago today. We got a fresh covering of snow, up to a couple inches. I'm getting ready to put the sheep in a corral close to the house for the winter so I dragged the pen up closer. We'll be setting up pens to divide the ones who will be bred and the ones who will not.

The pictures are kind of an update on the movable sheep pen. I had not built a top for it yet in the post and video I made earlier in the year.

I built a top by using pole barn metal siding. It wasn't wide enough for the ewes so I made an extension and covered it with a tarp. I intend to remove the tarp and replace it with metal at some point however.

This picture shows the underside which actually gives a better shot of how I constructed it.

Arie enjoyed playing in the fresh snow.
Just got done eating a fine Thanksgiving meal with one of our 20 pound home raised turkeys as the center piece. Hmm, good! The local family's all here for the occasion, my parents, Kelli's sisters and her nephews and niece. A real nice time. Something else to be thankful for.

Well, gotta go and get back to visiting.

God bless.

Until Next Time

Some food for thought


We got snow this morning. It's not the first time this season but, it is the first to really stick. The roads are slippery. Ready or not, here it comes!
