When we sold our farm in February, we put aside enough money to have a fencing contractor do the fencing on the new acreage. Dennis fenced the two previous farms so was happy to let a fencing contractor put in the 1600 yards of farm fence needed here. The fencing should take about 1 week to complete. We are aiming to move the 5th wheel travel trailer to the acreage by the May long weekend and then we can bring the sheep and other animals home.

After 7 weeks away in the desert of Mesa Arizona in our 5th wheel trailer, we returned home to 100 Mile House last week. The day after we got back, Bree delivered this lovely HSt lamb. The,sheep waited for us to get home before they started lambing! Co-incidental probably, but I'll choose to think that they waited. Twelve of the fifteen bred ewes have lambed. We have some awesome lambs born this year. I will be adding some more pictures soon.
I will also be blogging over the next few months about the development of the acreage that we purchased last fall. The plans for our new house are just about complete. Fencing of the 10 acres will start tomorrow. Later this week, the electrical contractor will be installing the power lines. Once power is in and the fencing is complete, we will consider moving our 5th wheel on to the property so that we can bring the animals home.
Meanwhile, Dennis and myself, our two Newfoundlands and two Lhasa Apsos are continuing to do well in the 5th wheel. The dogs were a big hit with everyone at the RV campgrounds we stayed at on our trip south. I also look forward to reading your blogs to see what you have all been up to.
