Casey on our mountain of green. "It's getting hot out here".
Thought I'd get some picture posted of the green mountain before it drys up for the summer.
Great time to climb the hill and watch the sheep grazing.
Two previous years the sheep started grazing grass in late February or early March.
This spring we had grass up here but between snows and cold days it wasn't growing much. They were not able to graze much till April.
Now it is all going to seed. The rich spring grass was lost to all the cold. Some of my ewe's that lambed are getting TOO thin from nursing their lambs without the rich spring grass to fatten them up before lambing.
Today it will be in the high 70's and Simon is feeling the heat.
I live out side Reno Nv on 20 acres with my husband 3 dogs 6 cats and my flock of Shetland Sheep. We have a Ma-Pa landscape business I'm the bookkeeper secretary and girl Friday. The best part of the job is that the office is at home. This gives me the opportunity to raise the sheep, farm the land. ;o) and fiber arts but not as much as I'd like.
