Just like every morning and afternoon those buckets are not going to fill themselves and the hay and straw sure isn't getting to the field on its own nor is the water trough and creek gonna just bust on its own without the help of warm temps and the work of the sun so that leaves me.. but I wouldn't change a thing.
A normal morning feeding consist of me going out in my pajamas( no shame), today that was not the case. Today I bundled up a little but don't be fooled, I still had my pjs on under all the layers.
You see the weather over the last couple of days here in Western Kentucky has been a little crazy.
Sunday was around 50 and 60 degree, Yesterday we dropped over 30 degree. This morning at feeding it was around 15 degrees. Wind 10mph plus and some snow on the ground.
I didn't mind one bit going outside this morning epically to take care of my livestock.
I love snow, today we only had about 1 to 2 inches.
Talk about a beautiful view when walking outside seeing the sheep.
It is important on days like these you check on your livestock or any animal in fact. Making sure they have enough feed to keep up their energy because they burn a lot more off when trying to keep warm.
Making sure they have unfrozen water, and a nice place to bed down that is dry..and more.
Here's to a cold morning and day, a sneak peak of winter and happy sheep as always.
Hey, it's me again Catlin. Just wanted to give you a little more detail about what my plan is for " A Growers Granddaughters" blog. My intention is to keep you up to date on my life adventures in agriculture such as research projects, a little gardening, and my grandads farm,Lively H, which inspired me to pursue a career in agriculture. This blog is not only for you to read but also see all the behind the scenes on the farm, and educate you more on agriculture topics. If you have any questions, please comment, or email me, If there is a topic in agriculture you are unsure about, shoot me and email.
