The long hot days of late summer seem to be dragging on, and our ewes are growing large and sluggish. I can relate. I didn’t have twins, but our son WAS almost 10 pounds and 22 inches long when he was born. I couldn’t get comfortable towards the end of my pregnancy, either.
Evening is such a peaceful time here on Fox Trot Farm. The heat of the day is waning and, on some evenings, distant thunderstorms send cool breezes our way. That’s how it was last evening.
The pregnant ewes move from the deep shade of the woods to the top of the hill to catch the breeze. Some graze. Some lie down and rest. Hobart watches.
Of course, when I approach Hobart he gets so happy and just wants a belly rub. It took several weeks when we first got Hobart for him to show this submissive posture to me. He had been around men only his whole young life, and I think he had to figure out where I fit into the grand scheme of things. Every time I approached him, I made him lie down, but he looked at me with wary eyes. Now he is just happy to see me and there is love in his eyes. He’s protective of me, too. He treats me as “alpha” pack member now. Of course, he gets LOTS of belly rubs.
I look forward to going to the Back Forty just to see the Sky Art. Here are some pictures of last evening’s offerings. I hope you enjoy them.
We’ll be open for your visits here on the farm this Sunday, which is Labor Day Sunday. Bring the family and take a stroll through the farm, or take a hay wagon ride and learn about our animals. We’ll have eggs, honey, soap and more in the farm market. Call or text me at 803-804-3541 if you have questions or to reserve your spot on one of the hay wagon tours ($5/each over 2 years old) at 1:30 & 3:00.
