Preparing for cold
It may not be pretty, but its functional. That's what you get when you add on to the sheep shed in a hurry with materials you have on hand at dusk during a snow storm. The beautiful sunshine was a blessing today so I was finally able to take a picture.
Supposedly sheep do not require a lot of elaborate barns and shelter, but, with the upcoming record low temperatures, we didnt want to take any chances.
This is what the conditions were like while we were building on to the shed last Thursday.
Since the weather was so beautiful today, we decided to do more preparations. We went on a feed run, filling the truck with chicken feed and sheep and goat grain, and then on to Dad's farm to get more hay. On our way back, the ole truck decided to die right in the middle of a one lane blacktop road with minimal cell service. Luckily it was an easy fix. I'm not sure if its another adventure, or just another day in the life of a farmer :-)
