Wow! It is so pretty here.

We don't get a lot of snow here in the Willamette Valley, but it is pretty when we get some. This is about 1/2" that came through in Jan or Feb 07. It was gone by the end of the week.

This other picture is of the tracks we found that evening leading into and out of the barn. They are of some canine, although we don't know if it is coyote or just a random dog. I haven't had my friends in the biology dept. look at it yet.

We have been pasture-breeding Bart and Consuella for about a week now. The idea is that they will have the whole day to "do it," and perhaps without the "pressure" they will conceive. She's been spitting off for a couple days now, so they are in their separate pastures. We'll spit-test them in a week.

Wish us luck! Our next step will have to be fertility testing.
