Glorious Color

The fields are still green with grass and I'm letting the sheep out to eat as much as they can before the snow comes and the pond is frozen.  We won't be able to reach this upper field come December.  All the sheep water will come from jugs I carry from the milk room to the hanging tubs in the barn.  With 75 plus sheep that's a lot of water.   No flabby arms here.  Why not use a hose?  Come January it is so cold in the barn that a hose left lying on the floor will freeze in minutes.  I'm spending as much time as I can walking the land.  The colors of the piney ridge are breathtaking.
