2019 Weekly Synopsis
GREETINGS FROM FAR EASTERN OREGON
~March 30, 2019
We heard our hay should get planted next week. That is exciting news. One of our pastimes is to watch the alfalfa grow–and eventually, get cut and baled. I guess that speaks volumes–while most of the world is obsessed with anything associated with technology, we watch the hay field, birds, and the trains.
It has been a bit rainy, but nothing out of the norm for Spring. The temperatures are chilly early–but it seems to warm up nicely. Yesterday our high reached 60-degrees around 5 PM. We are enjoying the warmer temperatures, and it looks like sunshine and temperatures rising 60 and above for the weekend. Many of the fields are a lush green color–winter wheat is looking good.
Spring puppies continue to keep us busy. There are many aspects to the process–we have a few more weeks of work looking us in the face. This scenario is never truer than when we happen to have a few pups not promised.
Mostly over the last few years, pups have been promised before they are born. We have been blessed to have a healthy Wait-list. We want to thank all our repeat clients and those who send us the quality referrals.
This Week On the Blog…
We are ever so thankful for each of you who sent us the updates (with photos and/or videos). We were encouraged as well as excited to read about each of these OwyheeStar Weimaraners.

On a very personal note
Our granddaughter (Ashley) got us a few blackberry starts. We planted them at the Three Cliff’s Sanctuary a couple of evenings ago. We have wanted to get berries started for some time. We will see how this works out. As you can see, we were not short on help.
The garden is getting some love–we have worked on it once this week. The plan is to get after it again today. We got a few more seeds planted, and put down some ground cloth.
Overall, Cliff and I are doing well. I think my health keeps improving (at a snail’s pace)–steadily. It is pretty amazing. Cliff seems to stay about the same. We are working hard around the farm, on this old farmhouse, and with the Weimaraners. All is good!
