The spring Storm
The wind blew almost every day since we sheared last Thursday. We were lambing steady but not a lot any one day. The spring storm was predicted far ahead of time, but the animals knew it was coming also. The cows and the light calves that now run out with the cows came up in yard just looking. These light calves were in the lot and fed hay and some grain all winter. Now we are getting ready for calving and need the room so we put the calves out with the cows here. These cow won't calve until late April and May.
The storm came Tuesday afternoon and started to snow and snowed into the night.
We only got 2 or 3 inches of snow and some wind to blow everything around. The next
morning it was sunny and calm. The temperature got up to 44 degrees in the afternoon.
The sheep and the cows eating hay after the storm. As you can see there isn't
a lot of snow. We still need to haul the wool to Belle Fouche, probably some time next week.
