April was a wild month....weather wise and personally. Nothing terrible happened on the farm...only good things....like 2 new ewe lambs! One lamb is named Frieda and her mother is Peanuts and the 2nd ewe lamb who was born the day before Frieda is name Lily Pad and her mother is Boggy.
The personal part was trying to get ready to travel to NC and then drive with my sister to The northern neck of Virginia for my mother's internment and celebration of life. So my friend Karn came all the way from Ireland and stayed on the farm while I was gone. Karn helped me when I got home to ear tag, give shots and worm all the sheep. She also cleaned my barn(by hand, no tractor, as I had misplaced the pin for the landscape rake) , cleaned my house and cleaned up and organized my yard.
Karn is in country to run the riding program at the camp I went to as a camper and counselor.
She is an amazing friend and having her at the farm while I was gone made my travel to the funeral so much easier. I am so thankful for her friendship!
