What a glorious Fall season we've had..One of the best and longest for warm sunny days in Central Oregon that I can remember.  Typically we'd have snow by Halloween... this year we had several weeks of 80s, then dropping into the 70s.. Sunny and warm.  Leaving me much needed time to get caught up in preparing for those cold winter days and nights.  This morning a first dipping into freezing temps creating a crust on the water troughs.  Heaters going in today and the heat lamps already placed yesterday for Winston the pig, Love the Lamb, Hope and Faith the Goats and the chickens..  As usual this morning things never go as planned.. Escape from the barnyard was the theme this morning with finding the critter crew on my porch.  Hope was the only one that seemed to have gotten into a bit of trouble with a cut on her head which I've mended up with Vetericine .  Luckily the tack room was locked so there was not a feeding frenzy party in there as before!.  My amazing friends Tiff and Kenny got all the water lines blown out and the horse trailer winterized so that we do not freeze  up again this year ;)  Kenny has also made sure my hay loft is FILLED for all my critters.  THANK you my dear friends..  

With all of this glorious weather you would have thought I would have gotten some riding in.  Not so with all the happenings at the ranch including the remodel.  AND soon my friends we will be having an art opening PARTY!.. Again though I've had some wonderful help with friends and my Pastor and his family getting prepared for winter.  Bulbs planted, winterized, full hay barn, yard clean up, water ditch clean up, pens built, shelter painted.  LET the snow fly!  (NOT really as I cringe.... But we all know its coming)  forecast is for 10 degrees tonight possible snow by Saturday.  We got this!  

With the issues of last winter I made the decision to downsize the cattle.. and although it was very hard as I love each and every one of them I am feeling confident going into winter with now eight head.  Two steers, a bull, and five cows.  Then of course the crazy critter crew and Equines.  I've got this.. I dont know why I'm finding it so intimidating moving into winter this year.. I've been on my own since 2010, NOTHING has changed... Other than I'm older.. I suppose that worries me at times.  The what ifs... If something happened to me .. Who would care for them.  GODS got this :)  

I've got two steers in halters in training, the chickens are laying like crazy, MR Handsome the Rooster has made a full recovery but still refuses to return to the coop and remains with his new cattle buddies.  The horses are all fuzzy fuzzy with winter coats along with the Donks... This is my first winter with Goats so I'm not sure as I hunt for coats that will fit them.. They do have shelter and a heat lamp.  Winston is happy happy at 750 plus pounds!.. With his little hut and heat lamp.  AND Love the Lamb, well I'm sure with all that wool she'll be just fine!

I've not taken as many photos as I have in the past and will get out there this afternoon and post some updates on the critters.  Its a beautiful sunny day although cold.. Carhartt :)  Much love from Faith, Hope, Love Ranch, LLC
