Final preparations are being made for the holiday rush. Hams are being smoked, beef are being processed and aged and another round of turkeys will be be slaughtered for the festivities. But after the craziness of Thanksgiving, this is a much slower roll.
We love this time of year because there is such a focus is on food and family. We couldn’t agree more with that!
We also love this time of year because there is a sense of things being settled before we head into lambing season in January.
The ewes are in the barn and all bedded down ready to hide out in case of snow.
(But really, they are usually out in all the elements…)
The guard dogs are generally with their charges in one place for a few months and a little less ‘barky.
And most of the animals just ease back and get cozy in the hay or wood chips for the duration.
Happy Holidays to you. We hope you get to have some quiet cozy moments of your own.
