Weather Blues

Talk about too much of a good thing! We've had too much sun and still no rain....... Temperature is expected to hit 92 or 94, today. It is forecast to be in the 90's all week without rain......
I heard this morning on the local news channel that Illinois got some rain and it was raining in Ohio. The entire state of  Indiana was passed over without any rain. Some parts of the state are negative 11 inches of rain and there is talk of canceling Fourth of July fireworks.

Our breeding ram for this year is Charlie. Thanks to our daughter, he is here and he is a Dor Galen ram with different bloodlines to add to our breed.  We think he is a fine looking lad who will give us more full blooded Dor Galen lambs. He will be bred to our full blooded Dor Galen ewes from 2010 and 2011.

We Need RAIN!!!!!!!!

Some links........

Our pasture looks like it is August, not June. I'm trying not to think about feeding hay this summer, or what the second cutting will be like................

Fuzzy Wuzzy Was a Sheep.........

Here is our one and only English Southdown, Fuzzy Wuzzy. She is quite a character and one very friendly sheepy! As friendly a sheep as anyone could wish for, we are convinced she must be a former bottle baby. She arrived last August and has become a permanent sheep resident at Dor Galen.

New Farm Sign

Our newly painted farm sign, (painted by me), is now up on our hen house thanks to hubby. We are hoping for more protection for the sign as its former location near the highway resulted in alot of damage.
