An ordinary day. But a long one. This is the first time in a long time that I have been working all alone all day and I did not get the chores done until 8pm. However I WAS taking my time and everyone was fed and watered, even Our John, eventually.
I have ten more days before Hugo arrives and twelve days until Our Friend of the Fellowship come for a farm stay week in the Coop. .
For now I am just going to try and keep up until help arrives.
The header is Little Bobby. He has finally brought his head up. His chest is still very rattly but I am feeling cautiously optimistic.
Manu the Hereford Boar gallops across his field when he sees me, with great big woofs. I have to be careful to feed him before going in there so he is distracted as he is very heavy already and prone to those playful sideways swipes with his head. No-one is allowed in with him but me.
This is what I see when the UPS man comes with a delivery. He leaps out of his truck and plays with the dogs at speed. They have a whole system set up, the dogs simply abandon me when they hear his truck arriving. He trow for them both at the same time it is like a wild ballet. He is kind enough to deliver my shopping so that I don’t have to go anywhere. I use Amazon Prime and it saves me hours of time.
I hope you all have a lovely day. Today, if I am blessed with another ordinary day, I am going to REALLY TRY to clean all the floors and get the laundry put away, but I might be outside all day anyway. I do need to work on getting the other calves outside now that they are better. And there are fences that need fixing and a broken gate and the pigs water needs fixing again. I love farm life. I love that you love it too!
Lots of Love,
Your friend on the farm
