A Nice Day for Driving

A Nice Day for Driving



My friend Nancy Barker came to visit for a couple days with her dogs Gwen and Billie. It was hot and smoky, not a great day to be outside so we decided to go on a small tour. Back road to Douglas Lake from Westwold and then lunch at the Quilchena Hotel.
Didn't get many scenery pictures because of the smoke but have a couple to share. 



The Quilchena Hotel established in 1908 by the Rose family, now owned by Douglas Lake Ranch



The Douglas Lake Ranch still breeds their own ranch horses. The famous Peppy San was from Douglas Lake and the line still carries on.

Winter 2013

We were visiting at my mother-in-law's last night and she mentioned I hadn't blogged in a while. She is right so here is winter at our house today. I worked the Border Collies on the replacement ewes, we put a new bale in for them to eat and cleaned up the driveway a bit. Here are some pictures...

 Bred ewes watching Len with the tractor...it could be bringing FOOD!

 Replacement ewes better known as the Brillo-ettes

 Dinner for replacement ewes

 The piles of plowed snow are getting higher!

 Len dreams when he opens his eyes, he will be in Mexico on a beach

 One of the trial fields :(

 Plowing, plowing

 Handsome Sonny

 Bet yells..I'm coming! Are we going to work again????

 Kip ready for take off

 Handsome Hank

That's all! Have a Merry Christmas!

Hay There !

We have decided to sell our haying equipment. Going to take live a little easier so thought I would throw on some pictures of what we have for sale. Phone or email me for prices....





This is the bale wagon and has our water tank in the back so looks a little odd. Easy to transport it that way.

Evening Graze



It has been so hot here that the sheep go out in late evening to graze. There are 6 new replacement ewes and a wether that will be going in with the new ram when he gets here. They fit in like they have always been here.

Doe, a Deer

These are 4 of the 24 deer that have been eating the last year's new seeding in the field. They must have come down to the house to pay their restaurant bill. They came over as soon as the snow melted.
