And the winner is....


Despite the fact that Tillie was the ewe we were all watching, Maggie gave birth sometime late this morning to a single black ewe-lamb. While we were both at work, no less. I've been coming home every day in the early afternoon to check, but this one got away from me.

Mother and daughter are doing fine, although I placed them both in the lambing pen very quickly because it's supposed to get quite cold hereabouts tonight.

This lamb is out of Snorri, or she should be, so that's nice. We've wanted a Snorri-ewe for a while, but had to cull Polly, the one we got last year, because of a disease.

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.
