Early one cold morning, just a day before the snow set in, we begin to heard/tackle 7 pregnant mother sheep and bring them (one-by-one) into some nice straw-laden stables we had prepared the day before. To our surprise we found the cute little guy pictured below already born and shivering in the sub-zero (celsius) temperatures. Since then there have been many more lambs born including 4 sets of twins and one of triplets! wow! Their portraits to come…
Here are some random stills in and around the farm.
Harmonie the baker!
Hobo, Happy and Hurcule the resident terriers.
Meet Hefner. He’s Happy’s pup and brother to Hetti the girl pup who’s half his size with twice his toughness!
Kevin the Kat, aka Meowler. An adventurous hunter.
Putting the chickens to bed.
A few days after the thaw we took a bike trip to the near-by town of Bassous. A small city with a large impressive tower built-in the 13th century and a church still standing from the 12th. Quaint and very charming little town where we shared a good meal and took these pictures.
Louisa drove us high up into the Pyrenees for a spa retreat (not pictured) where we spent a magical 2 hours basking in heated pools saunas and steam rooms… Wonderful! These are shots of our journey to the spa including our stop at a ski resort for sled rides with the kids.
A few shots from a near-by park/campsite.
and a former farmhouse we came across on our bike ride slowly returning to the earth.
