Deadsplinter Up! All Night: Early Taste of Winter

And how the wind doth ramm!

An early taste of Winter has come through my world, and it’s been quite a shocker. Frigid temps and howling wind. We’ve spent the last two days running around the farm making sure the animals are all secured and winterized. I had to rush to install all the weatherstripping on the doors in this old farmhouse that I was supposed to put up a month ago. I hope this isn’t a preview of an extra-harsh season coming. At least I’ve got my love to keep me warm.



    • Nah, you just check them out to see if they’re all healthy and not underweight and if any need to be moved to the barn.  It’s basically the same thing we do every other day of the year, and it’s extremely rare to have to move them.  These merino are some hardy, healthy animals.


      Their wool is really impressive this year.  It’s like they were prepared for a really cold spell.  It’s going to be a bumper yield come April.

      • sheep with several inches of snow on them are the funniest thing to watch moving around grazing

        you think you know camo ghillie suit snipers?

        yeah…the humble sheep has a thing or two to teach you

      • Good luck! My wife played for me a recording a friend of hers made a few days ago of the coyotes on the edge of her little farm. The friend only has chickens, but the coyotes prowl and howl. Hope the sheep are safe and sound.

  1. Mornings here have been cold, and there’s rain/snow forecast for the weekend. Having started the month in Kauai, I am behind in my annual cold acclimatization skills. The mornings hurt.
