After the branding we came home to start getting ready for the coming storm. Saturday morning came with a light misty rain and a light east wind. We got all the bunches of sheep, there are six different bunches, fed and then moved some around to crowd every one into a shed for the evening. We are supposed to get from 12 to 17 inches of snow along with a 50-60 MPH wind.
We went out to get the last bunch that has lambs that are 2 months old. They have been far out into the pasture.
This Tammy dressed to go after this last bunch of sheep. This is the before picture.
This picture was taken 20 minutes later. I call it the after picture. We had just started gathering the ewes and lambs to take back to the barn.
There wasn't much wind so the snow was just falling down and melting as the flakes hit the ground.
When we got to the corral their hay was ready. The corral is muddy, but all the ewes and lambs should be able to get in the barn if they want to. Even in wet yucky weather there is still time to play king of the mountain.
