Rental Ram Return

Taking Snorri the rental ram back to his home farm was Friday's big job. Snorri is a very mellow fellow and we'd like to keep him but you can't easily have two rams on one small farm, so he had to go home after doing his duty by our second generation Womerlippi ewes this fall.

This is one of his family back home, a very fuzzy ram lamb, the other series is of the unloading, as Snorri jumps out of our pickup and runs back into his own home barn.

Aimee loved the ram lamb and wanted to take him home a little because he was such a cutie, but settled for knowing that some of Snorri's offspring, due as early as eight weeks from now, will look like him.

Hopefully they're as well-behaved and mellow. Snorri was a great improvement in character on our own dude, Abraram, who will butt you anytime you turn your back, and is big enough to do real damage.

Welcome to our Farm Blog.
The purpose of this blog is for Aimee and I to communicate with friends and family, with those of our students, and other folks in general who are interested in homesteading and farming activities.

The earliest posts, at the very end of the blog, tell the story of the Great Farm, our purchase of a fragment of that farm, the renovation of the homestead and its populating with people and animals. Go all the way to the last post in the archive and read backwards from there to get it in chronological order.

After getting tired of spam comments (up to a dozen or more per day), I required commentators to be Google "registered users". You can write me at if you have a serious comment or question and are not a registered user.

Spammers -- don't bother writing -- there's no way I will post your spam to my blog. Just go away.
