We woke up this morning to rain!!!! We've never been so pleased to see rain, it will mean the end of the snow and we will be able to get out of our yard easily at long last. As the melting snow and rain were running down the lane over the compacted snow, we spent the morning clearing the slope of the compact snow. Not much fun in the rain, but if it decides to freeze we won't have a ice rink to deal with.
Now the sad news, as I went to feed the ewes this morning, I saw a sheep on her back, it was Cassie, she was on her back resting against the hay rack, with no sign of life. I don't know how it's happened, but it is so sad as she was such a good ewe. Considering we've had 4 weeks of snow she was in good condition. There is only one thing to do, get her into the barn and ring the fallen stock man to come and collect her.....
