Catching Up

I've been told that we haven't been keeping our blog up to date. 50 lashes with a wet noodle to me!!! Life on the farm is just very busy with lambing, puppying, and kittening (ha ha).
We have been attending all the requisite cat shows and our latest prospect Ragalong Cloud 9 has been excelling in the show hall. Lots of Best in Shows and significant wins at the Portland Show in January which is now the largest show in TICA and attracts all the International Winners.
We've been to Ferndale last month, again with numerous wins and will be heading to White Rock next weekend for the CF of BC show at which we will have to set up the show hall and generally make a nuisance of ourselves. Corky has been summoned by the club to attend as well as he is noted for his expertise in setting up show rings and generally being a big help to everyone. Apparently he's been missed at the shows where I go and he stays home to hold the fort.  Cloud is booked to go to Edmonton in a couple of weeks for another show and then on to the Calgary show. So, have no fear, we are certainly active with our breeding program and presenting our lines in the show halls. The kitten we showed in Ferndale also got a Best In Show, so Hobbit is also starting to catch the judge's eyes.
Lambing has gone well. Corky has kept all the lambs in this year instead of letting them run loose outside with their mums. This results in a lot more work, but better gains in the lambs as they don't have to compete with the dratted Canada Geese for water sources and grass. The geese leave their calling cards everywhere which is not healthy for the lambs.
We have a litter of Great Pyrenees puppies that will make great family pets and guardians as sell as wonderful livestock protection dogs. We are taking reservations on the puppies and new kittens. So, that's all folks.
