Since it was supposed to be a cold windy day, I'd decided to stay in and spin for the most part. So I started spinning some roving that Caryn just got back from the mill, its a blend of pygora and BFL lambs wool.
Then I decided to wash up some dishes, tidy up the kitchen take out the trash. When I'm outside putting the trash in the bin, I realize it would be a good time to move the breeders into the area that I'd electronetted off a month or so ago so they could eat on that. The grass in the main pasture is getting pretty sparse. It would also give me the opportunity to let the ram lambs and goats out into another electronetted area that I can't put them in when the breeders are in the main pasture because the rams are too close and tend to try to get at each other. Complicated I know, breeding time is always a challenge keeping everyone separated and happy.
I get everyone in their proper place and then think, might as well bring hay over to the garden for the ram lambs and goats so I don't have to do it later in the day. So I fire up the tractor, load up some hay and take it over to the lambing shed in the garden.

I put the tractor back in the barn, tools back in the shed and go back to the house. I walk in and look over at the trash can that sits empty in the middle of the kitchen floor and realize that this all began with me taking out the trash lol. Does that ever happen to you? You think you're going to take a quick detour to do a minor task and end up spending hours doing "minor tasks"? This is exactly how the horses got out because I left a gate open to go do a minor task.
I'll leave you with some sunset pics I took a couple of evenings ago. And yes, I am obsessed with sunrises and sunsets and yes you will see lots of pictures of them, I can't' help myself.
Happy Thanksgiving from DreamCatcher Farm!
