The Carbon County Fair is almost upon us. Siobhan and Seamus have modeled their sewing projects and await the final judgement. The 4-H lambs (two market lambs for Siobhan, two market lambs for Seamus and one Hampshire buck lamb for Siobhan) are fat and getting their Fair coats on. Here is Maeve helping to wash the lambs.

Grandkids, 4-H steers and the pregnant cows

We never forget what a privilege it is to be raising children alongside our cows, sheep, horses, dogs, llamas, etc.  Today, the three “big kids” (8, 6, and 4) went out to work with Siobhan’s 4-H steers, check the cows who are about to calve, and just play in the slush and snow.
