Re: Somebody...

After a week of nice weather winter's back in Alberta too...-28C this morning and only a high of about -18C today. But it was bright and sunny and the days are getting noticeably longer even if spring is more than likely a good 2.5 months or more away (the calendar dates for spring, fall and winter are really quite a joke around here).

Like a Saskatchewan spring....if we are lucky the snow melts by mid April and last frost dates are usually around the May long weekend.

Re: Somebody...

Surprisingly YB the last frost dates are the same here in Southern ON.  Don't usually plant the veggies and annuals until May 24 weekend.  Only things I plant early are the onions, peas and lettuce.  Will be going to William Dam Seeds in the next couple of weeks to get my seeds, always makes me feel good to be starting to plan my garden for spring :thumbsup:

I saw that MD, wow they are even getting some snow and freezing rain into Alabama and Georgia.  My Mum in FL her high today is 42F.  I wish there would be some light at the end of this tunnel. Yesterday morning -12F and then wind chill making it feel colder, this morning the same.  :sad:

Re: Somebody...

Another nasty cold windy day here with windchill -30C all pretty much all night and day long.  We got two more healthy little lambs from the other old girl today.  We are now up to 8 little lambs that includes the two in the house.  Tomorrow it is supposed to start to warm up so will try to take these two back out to the shed with the others. 
Meh meh and Bah bah,  black headed is the girl and the spotted lamb is the boy out of the triplets,

Re: Somebody...

Yesterday we put them out to the shed with the rest of the flock.  It has warmed up considerably we are now areound -5 t -10C.  My sister was here with her kids and we went to look at the sheep and my niece was wondering if it would be OK with her mom if her and her brothers and sister would go in the pen too to pet the little guys. :do?: I said sure! :whistle: Needless to say my sister wasn't too impressed when she saw them in there with their school close. :no no: I just told her Uncle Stefan said it was OK and maybe next time she should bring barn boots along when they come out to the farm. :thumbsup:

Re: Somebody...

LOL your sister sounds like my sister when she would bring my niece and nephew out to play with their cousin.  It got to the point I had extras for them to wear each time they would come out, that way they could just take them off and leave them here any my sister didn't have to take any "poopy" stuff home with her, LOL

Yes much milder here this morning, pretty sad when it feels warm at -5.  I was so thrilled this morning as the water line had thawed, I was out there all by myself with the dog and chickens doing a little happy dance!!  :excited:
Going to clean pens this afternoon of all the frozen poop, feels like your are walking on marbles!! :shock:

If you're a kid on a farm and you're not covered in poo and mud, you're not doing it right! :P

I guess I'm still a kid then too! 
Our last little ewe had a lamb this am too now we are up to 9, all 9 were cuddling together under the heatlamp.  She's not too keen on the lamb yet, hopefully we can get them two started together.  That only leaves Lilly our Boar goat with out babies.  She does have a huge belly too but she's likely just fat as it is very rare to have a sheepgoat.

Re: Somebody...

Do sheep have a high occurrence of not mothering their babies? When I was a kid (human kind) we had 2 lambs come live with us because the mother only nursed one of her babies. She had triplets. We bottle fed them for awhile then one day they were gone. Parents are so mean!
