On the ranch, the loss of our dear sweet Misty Moo is still felt but young Bella, Misty's daughter is an exuberant daily reminder of her mom (mum) and both she and young Sirloin the Dexter steer are growing daily. Lady our Shire mare and Charm the golden palomino are still a cause for concern after foundering last Summer but Quest is thankfully thriving and eating anything that doesn't move. Old T bone the ancient bay gelding is still as unstable and grumpy as ever but that equine antique still has as much attitude as a Spring colt . The formation eating team aka the Gentle Giant sheep flock are expanding daily...their lambs are due at the end of February and Ky and Fiona, the perpetrators of the Great Ranch Escape have resigned themselves to life within the five acres which has since been re fenced and is now possibly as reinforced as Alcatraz.
Clearly, Winter will re visit the Pacific Northwest....when it does, we will be ready but right now, I'm enjoying this brief spell of less than seasonal weather. Take care, keep safe, M.
