Leaves are falling by the boatload and ice is forming on unprotected water buckets. Winter is around the corner, but the animals are as happy as ever. Oliver and Rosie are chasing the sheep every chance they get. The sheep aren’t afraid at all and have no problem trying to butt the dogs. We are not sure how many pregnant ewes we have this year, but we know there is at least one and perhaps four. The chickens are still laying a lot of eggs, but that will slow down as the temperature drops and Chloe our half barn cat, half inside cat, still rules the roost. We just managed to stain the barn before it got too cold. What a difference some Ben Moore solid stain makes! We are now just preparing for the snow.
