Ribstone Farm

Icelandic Sheep Breeders in Endiang, Alberta

Springtime on the Farm

After a very long winter, spring is finally arriving here on Ribstone Farm.  This past winter was one of the worst in recent memory, with snow on the ground from the middle of October until the beginning of May.  Hard weather for calving.

We’ve been lucky, though, for lambing.  Lambs are due to arrive in the middle of May, when the weather should be beautifully warm and green grass starting to appear.  

Speaking of new arrivals, we welcomed the birth of a son this April.  Wee Robbie gets to be the newest shepherd here on Ribstone Farm and we look forward to many adventures with him.
