Shearing day is right around the corner. Temperatures are to dip pretty low Wednesday night and then begin to warm up again. It is almost May, after all.
It looks like this year's growth has been almost two inches! These two were built for arctic conditions. I never worry about them in the winter.
Lately, I've been working on trimming their hooves whenever I can catch them lying down. As you can see, Faith has both her feet tucked beneath her. That's because I just trimmed both of her front hooves and she is telling me that "enough is enough!" The sheep shearer will finish trimming their hooves when he shears them.
For some reason, this winter they grew a lot of hoof.
I've been working on trimming pig toes as well, lately.
Luckily, there always seems to be a cat who's up for the task!
I am so loving this spring. It seems like this particular spring is the loveliest we have had in years.
Whatever the reason, I am enjoying each second that I am out and about.
All of the bulbs and flowers that I planted around Maven Haven are blossoming; as are the apple blossoms of the trees nearby. As I head to the barn and pass by the shed, I smile at the scene. It's slowly becoming what I had envisioned.
I don't know about you, but I am always trying to figure out the best pillow combination for a well-dressed bed.
I believe I may have stumbled upon the perfect pillow placement.
Take two matching pillows with shams and place one long pillow in front of them, and then top the whole thing off with one sleeping kitty.
Perfect!! Perhaps I should write a book about home decor... maybe, "Decorating With Cats"?
