    We hit 82 degrees today but it's going to drop back down in the high 50's low 60's for the next week or so.

    I haven't talked to anyone there but I'm guessing based on the market report, it may be more of a demand issue since the sheep sold was about 1/4 of what it usually is.

    We went from no grass to cutting grass for a couple of hours yesterday. I set seeds for our tomato and bell pepper plants and will leave them on the porch till transplanting time. I have another 100 pounds of pasture blend grass seed to put out after I move the sheep this morning and then we...

    Coronavirus Covid-19 Is it Affecting You and How?

    Tennessee is converting to online school for K-12 but not having kids involved, I have no idea how successful it will be. We have a good Governor that is even working out how to get computers and internet signal to those that don't have it.

    We went out last week during the one day we didn't have rain. The water was muddy and we only caught a few Crappie but it was a nice day :) We hope to go out again after we get the sheep sorted out this week. It's an old boat but the only thing we had to do to it was replace the power pack.

    I called Fred (@CntryBoy777) earlier today to see how he's doing. He is still having some issues so I wanted to pass on that he is still around and hanging in there and said he will be back on BYH as soon as he is able.

    Hi from Clifton Forge, VA

    We have72 head right now but our base number going into winter was 30 ewes. Our ewes have no fear of humans at all but they get a lot of contact.

    This is by no means official but the daughter that lives in Reno's father-in-law is a Pharmacist at a hospital in northern California and they are part of the trial with the two medications that President Trump mentioned the other day. He said they only have a few cases but they are privy to...

    We finally have a day without rain and none in the forecast for a couple of days so I spent a good part of the day putting Surrender Fire Ant killer on the ants mounds. I pretty much had them gone last fall but they sure came in this spring. The Corona Virus event is even making some of the...

    I thought Mel was going to bite me this morning. The ewe that had bottle jaw is not getting any better no matter what we do for/to her. She is getting around slower and even when I take food to her, she will eat some but that's about it. When I went out this morning she was on her side and...

    We picked up our beef from the butcher yesterday and grilled a Ribeye to have with some eggs for breakfast. It was aged for 20 days and has an awesome taste.

    I mentioned earlier that a home has been found for the lone German Shepherd pup that is left at the kennel. The only problem is that nobody had worked with this pup at all. She had a fit and started raising heck whenever you got near her with a leash. I have been going over a couple of times...

    I don't hope to eliminate them but at least cut them down a notch or two. We have them worse this year than since we have had our place.

    I had hoped to get grass seed broadcast today but rain was literally just north of us and I didn't want to get caught with 100 pounds of seed in the hopper if rain started so decided to try again tomorrow. I've been going to work with that German Shepherd pup that we almost brought home a few...

    Coronavirus Covid-19 Is it Affecting You and How?

    We haven't been to a grocery store since this mess started but according to the radio, grocery items like meat and dairy were out of stock in Pulaski, about 15 miles from us. Trucks are coming in but the folks that are hoarding are pulling the stock out as soon as it comes in. Pulaski has a...
