– running through my head all day yesterday. For you. But I did not write it down. Roger and I have similar problems, whereas he cannot remember a word, I cannot remember an entire concept. There was something I was going to tell you. But it has popped like a soap bubble. Gone.
(as goats do) from left field. Out of left field. A saying I have never understood – not being in any way – Sporty.
Then she leaped out from Right Field. Apparently as goats DO – I am learning fast.
And then they laugh at me. Have you heard a baby goat laugh yet? They do you know.
The Dutch Belted Duchies. The Breeder has informed me that Elsie (Screen Left- Stage Right) is 100% Dutch Belted. Though she does not have a full belt, she is the real thing and she is a smaller cow. Lady Astor with her overblown belt and white feet (another no no) is so much bigger. (I still do not have her papers so I am not sure of her pedigree). Though again I did not buy these two to show. Or for their pedigrees. So it is OK with me whatever they look like. I bought them for the milk. Raw cows milk is a huge component in the feed cycle of my little farm. And both these cows are doing beautifully so far. So I am looking forward to the milk again.
Now that the big pigs are out of the barn, I feel so much happier about their health. Pigs need sun even on grey days. I need sun too! So off out I go.
I hope you have a lovely day.
Your friend on the farm,
