Yesterday we went and picked up my ram lamb. When we got there the farmer showed us Max and then we went to see the weaned babies, then to the ewes that still had their babies. She told us that she had to get rid of two ewes and if we new anyone that would want them. When she said that I was thinking in my head " I hope Mom and Dad let me get one." After getting Max into the truck we decided we were just going to take one of the two ewes. Not too long after getting the one ewe into the truck the farmer said we could load up the other ewe and my Dad said "lets do it'. So after just coming to get one we ended up bring home three.

On Sunday I cleaned out my chicken coop. It took me a few hours to get it all cleaned. It was all worth it because it looks so much better now. Remember the grain feeder my Dad took out of the sheep barn this spring...well we put that in the chicken coop to use as new nesting boxes.
Next Wednesday I will be a proud new owner of a CVM ram lamb. I am so excited!! I have been thinking about all the things that have to get done before he comes. We have the spot where Sully and Max will be staying almost done. We still have to put up a few boards so it's extra sturdy so he won't be able to ram his way through to try and get to the girls, or the hay for that matter.
The Girls and Sully have been able to go out to the BIG pasture behind their barn. At first they didn't like going out there unless one of us walked out there with them but now they will walk out there by themselves. I went out to get some pictures of them in the big field. I love seeing the grass blow in the wind like waves at the beach. There was this one deer that was very curious. It kept getting closer and closer.
