The morning was filled with hauling and sorting the last of the worked calves. Every load hauled out makes the farm a little bit more still.I love when the cows come home for the winter, as much as I love when the last load gets hauled out for summer pasture.It feels like a big sigh.
Chicken Coop Tour is this morning and we’re working our last bunch of calves.I’ve prepped lunch for our work crew and Cass and I await the big yellow bus full of Kindergartners with the best farm questions.
Luke and I clean the chicken coop. We’re having a Coop Tour and the Harrington Kindergarten class will be field tripping to our ranch this Friday, an annual event. This class hatches eggs every year and then tours chicken coops in the area.
Dirk is hauling cows to Lillianthall Mt. (the highest peak in Lincoln County) it is by far our most remote piece even though it borders a state highway.The pasture wraps around the entire Mt. and has natural springs; it’s a rustic piece of pasture with areas that are straight up and down. We take our seasoned cows to this piece but always introduce new cows so they can be shown the ropes.
