How we reached pre-warp speed so fast I have no idea. (What was pre warp speed called anyway – cruise? But Warp speed is on its way!) But yesterday had everything happening at once. Thankfully I had Gracie and the Cadet to help out. And John is still waiting for his call back to work so he is handling all the sowing and pricking out of vegetable plants. The salads from his tiny glass house are amazing.
Poppy is still not in Standing Heat. The pigs semen is still in its straw and she is still heaving about like a mad thing. The question is has she gone past it or is still leading up to it. I hope for the latter.
The weather is nice at least so they are not cold.
The cadet was enthralled and spent her visit hanging out with the sheep making sure they were ok after their experience.
Of course she has them all hypnotized. She could not believe they sat quietly for their hair cuts and is proud of their good behaviour.
Boo watched from his chain because he gets a little TOO helpful. And of course everyone else was watched closely by the nosy Dutchies.
Good morning. I am still watching Poppy closely. I do hope that she does come into standing heat as the semen is expensive. But if we were too late at least now we have a firm date and so I will have everything in hand before she comes into heat next time. (Which will be when I am in Portland believe it or not!). But we can cross that bridge when we come to it. Plenty of road to go yet.
I hope you all have a lovely day today or at the very least find some loveliness. A gentle pregnant cow is lots of lovely.
Love your friend on the farm,
