We've all been going through a period of adjustment to the new place. The dogs are a little sad because they no longer have the run of the house with their dirty paws. At night and during working hours they get to stay in the basement. Callie is pretty house friendly (besides getting burrs in her fur dirty paws from playing in the pond) but Jako is still a mischievous chewing puppy. They (he) can't be trusted alone in a new house. On warm days, they have a nice kennel to keep them safe and out of the road and neighbor's yards. They do love helping with feeding time when they can run wild up the hill and all over the farm, supervised of course.
As for the people, we finally have a fully functional kitchen. complete bathrooms and railings on the stairways :). A driveway instead of mud would be nice. One step at a time I suppose.
The sheep and horses are preparing for winter. Since the frosts have started coming night after night, they are back in the feed lot and getting hay. Rambo is happily doing his job preparing mamas for lambing season in the spring. If you notice any 'blue butts' on the ewes, that means Rambo has been coloring with his marking crayon. This year, we attached a harness to his chest with a blue marking crayon so we could keep track of his activity and have a better idea of who was due when in the spring.
