Everyone is so happy with the Spring 2013 grass.  They may be the only ones happy with all the rain we got this winter and spring.





Now the reason all that rain isn't that fun.  Fence put up by previous owner taken out by two trees during the spring rains.  Made for a fun Sunday of cutting up trees. 


Spring Shearing done May 2013.  Apparently no one wanted to be sheared this spring because they were darned difficult to catch.

2013 Winter and Spring rains have the pastures looking better than ever. 


I (mom) have hijacked Amanda Hillyard's website to thank her for the new bathroom she remodeled for me December 2013.  She demolished the existing bath, laid a heated floor and tiled/grouted the floor and shower.  Thanks for the new bathroom.  Enjoy the picture of her work.
