♡ ♡ ♡ ♡52 degrees this morning and cloudy but by the time I got home the sun was out and shinning.
I walked the Farm Loop and around the two cemeteries and the ball park loop.
Three deer ran across the street in front of me. I've been seeing deer lately after not seeing any for quite a while. I saw the usual rabbits, birds, and a couple of chipmunks. The horses Faith and Grace were by the part of the fence that I could get to and gave them a pet again today.
Number 25 was right near the fence and didn't even move when I got this close to take his picture. I was going to give him a pet too but he didn't look like he wanted one.
A nice morning to be out walking.
I walked 6.6 miles.
Found a penny.
♡ ♡ ♡ ♡We never did get to go outside after supper yesterday to take up the sod with the tractor. The rain came down pretty hard as you can see.
♡ ♡ ♡ ♡This morning we went back to church to get more work done. We painted the rest of the fence, finished the rock walkway and put down mulch.
This is the shearing shed and that is Ken in the doorway.
Here are the sheep.
Ken holds the next sheep to get sheared. Sheep are stronger than you think and Ken had quite a time of capturing one.
The sheep not only got sheared, but had their hoofs cut and got an injection. My job was to write down the tag number of the sheep and to get the injection ready. I had to fill the syringe with the medicine.
Here is Stu shearing one of them.
This is Wilbur.
He is an orphan and is still being bottle fed and is off by himself in a pen.
It's been great day and one I won't soon forget.
Hope your day was a happy one.
happyone : )
