On Sunday Wade and I moved our sheep to greener pastures…sounds kinda corny… but really, we did! We have separated our ewes into two groups. We moved one group closer to the barn (they will be lambing soon, and we all know the only reason I do this is to see all our lambs! Um…not really. But kinda…).
Anyway, we moved the other group to the back of the property with green grass (thank you rain!) while they wait to be bred. I should mention that to get to the ewes on the back of the property it is literally across the river and through the woods……and up multiple hills…and….you get the point. But once you get there this is the view our ewes have.
I’m pretty certain they have a better view than I do. And I am also pretty certain we have the most spoiled ewes ever.
So yesterday I fed the ewes by the barn then got in my handy dandy yellow ‘vintage’ (makes it sound cuter) golf cart, loaded it with some alfalfa, and Lucy and I headed over the hill and through the woods….
…and up the hills, and through some more woods
…and up the last hill and…
….my little yellow golf cart died.
Opps. I may or may not have forgotten to charge my little yellow electric cart the last couple days. My bad.
So I had to carry the alfalfa down to the ewes. And walked up this hill a total of four times to get all the feed.
Now, this hill may not seem like much. But after my fourth venture up the slippery dew-covered hill, I was over it. I’m pretty sure Lucy was thrilled.
But the ewes got fed. Spoiled ladies.
And Lucy and I had a nice hike back down to the barn. And on the way down the last hill I took this photo.
It might just be the most beautiful photo ever. Not that I am biased or anything. But really, seeing this made me so thankful for what we do, where we live, and how we live our lives.
I am also thankful for that yellow golf cart my husband brought home for me….but now I have to figure out how to bring it back down the hill before he realizes it’s missing. And that I killed it….
And this all took place before 8 a.m.
Off to rescue the cart,
