I’ve been letting the sheep out onto the kids’ playground while I do the morning chores. They love that nice long grass. I am so glad they aren’t shorn yet: it has still been ridiculously cold. Today it was 21*, brr.
Sheeps and ships and notice that frost
These girls were my helpers today, shown here with Snowy. They’re in Lower El (lower elementary: 6-9 year olds).
And this was the surprise. We have a feral black cat, and on Friday afternoon she had 4 little black kittens. Silly girl: she made her nest directly below the manger in the sheep shed. The kittens would’ve been squished so I made another nest in a hoof-free corner.
