Spring into summer

Spring into summer

Spring has finally segued into summer.  We still have lots of snow in the high country, and roads and bridges are washed out everywhere.  I have been remiss in posting the spring doings, mostly because iI am trying to figure our new platform with WordPress.  I think we will be very happy in this new home, once I figure out what the heck I am doing.  That said, I will post pictures from our spring doings–from trailing to shearing to lambing to docking.  We are now heading out on the trail again with the sheep, pointed toward our summer Forest Service grazing permits.  The cows have also been busy, from calving to branding, and now, ready to head for summer grazing.
