spring time

Oh what a month! I keep asking for more hours in the day, but worry that I would probably fill them up.

We have started to calve, and so far they look pretty good and healthy. The cows are all out on leased irrigated pasture and have put some nice weight on so far this spring. They have plenty of ponds and irrigation as well as great vegetation with the rain that we seem to be getting each week. We brought the calves from last year home from the neighbors property and they are pretty heavy with the spring grasses. The heifer will go out with the rest of the cow herd in June, and the steers will go out on another pasture to put on their "finish" fat.

Our lambs are doing wonderful and are quite curious. We have one lamb that doesn't mind the electric net fencing as he has stuck his head in to it several times and gotten tangled. We have had to untangle him quickly, but some of the ewes just seem to hop over him and out to greener grasses. Why is the grass always greener on the other side?

We have also found that there is a ewe that sticks her nose under the bottom wire and slips right on under it. She is going to find a new home soon.

We have been having a good time with some of the local events, serving some of our lamb and egg samples. We have talked several people in to trying just a small piece, and they shake their head until finally giving in. Funny... they come back and ask for another piece and then sometimes another.

Good word Brian. The enemy uses that whole “the grass is always generer on the other side of the hill” to deceive, distract and seduce men with the world. God is giving warnings to this generation that we must pay strict attention so we would not be deceived. I was deeply stirred when I read your word and reminded of how careful and diligent we must be.1 Timothy 4:1,2 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly (distinctly), that in the latter times some shall depart (remove, desist, desert) from the faith (persuasion, assurance, belief), giving heed (pay attention to, adhere to) to seducing (impostor or misleader, deceiver) spirits, and doctrines (instruction, teaching) of devils (demonic being); speaking lies (promoting erroneous Christian doctrine) in hypocrisy (deceit); having their conscience (perception, moral consciousness) seared with a hot iron (rendered insensitive).

Tried the leg of lamb roast and it was really nice. We eat a lot of lamb and this was just the right size for 2 and 4 if you have side dihses to go with it. I find that when faced with the larger roasts in town it is just too pricey to have very often. The quality was excellant. I was truely impressed there.

Ahh, you! Thanks for the tag. I will be sure to get to it soon. My Mother-in-law is in town visiting for a week so my blgoging has pretty much come to a screeching halt. I did, however, write a post regarding the lovely blog award and hope to get that up in a day or two. Please continue to have patience with me.
