Winter in NE Minnesota means early sunsets and late sunrises. The Commander gets up at 0515 to begin watering the sheep before work so it is always dark outside. When he gets home in the evening it has been dark until recently so I got him the above pictured headlight for Christmas. He tells me it works great and it has really helped with his chores.
The other day he told me it looked like someone was using the ewes feed bowl for a bed. He would go into the barn in the morning and find the hay smashed down with little presents left in it.
One morning he snuck in and turned on his light and found Orchid sleeping in the bowl, tucked in nice and tight amongst the hay. Smart girl that Orchid.
I am an Ocicat. My duties include; security (rodents), counter intelligence (predators), infiltration (sneaking) and night surveillance.
I live in NE Minnesota on 10 wooded acres with; my best friend Mocha, three dogs, chickens, Guinea Hens, Nigerian Dwarf Goats, Cascade Sheep, Icelandic sheep, and a few humans.
When we moved here it was completely wooded, our plan is to turn this property into a working homestead.
