This afternoon, I went over to my friend Naomi's farm. She has around 520 hooves at her farm not counting the dogs. She has a lot of rock on her property though, so she doesn't have to worry about hooves so much. Her next major job, which has just begun, will be moving 300+ sheep around from place to place. Fortunately, most of the lambs will be gone before they need too much done on them (accept for baby shots).
I know Karen is anxiously awaiting her kids but, as cute as they are, I am glad we have no lambs due this spring. I have fencing to do and pasture that needs to be restored before we have any more hooves to trim and mouths to feed, here. Plus I still have to find homes for 3 mouths and 12 hooves. Maybe next year, when Cabin Spring Farm sheep get famous and everyone wants their lambs.
Lyndy is in India-- I must remember to ask her if she has seen any sheep there. She called to say Happy Valentines Day but I was probably asleep when she left the message (10 hour time difference). She was going to see the Taj Mahal on Valentines Day. What can I say- We lead different lives.
