    60mph storm last night.
    Food bin soaked. Gave most out to the pacas and sheep, most dry to horses. Soaked n mushy parts tossed out.
    Cart shed shredded.
    Horse gate closed somehow and they decided to plow a fence down...

    Never a dull, calm moment...

    Flugi is the fence destroyer. She tried it again today when they escaped after hay got delivered.

    The 3 registered ramlings-

    Working on getting some more sheep...since I've obviously lost my noodle.
    Spotted ewe, "appy" ram, plus a wether, since it's a group deal only.
    Gotta drive to Floyd Va.
    Mom and wether-

    I should probably turn the barn fan on tomorrow to help them dry.
