My shadows, the dogs, and I powered through the day yesterday. Everyone was living and breathing. It was a good and tiring day. We are getting the fields ready for the great reshuffle. Poppy is coming out today and Little and maybe Bobbi (if I can find some help) will be getting a wee field of their own so they can start eating grass.
It rained which I was grateful for as I am finding it hard to get into the garden without help, I mainly farm with all the animals and birds in my care. I get time to pick and yank a few weeds out to feed the pigs but not much else. So the down pour saved me having to drag hoses around again.
It was a bit too much for Boo though who had thunder and lightening AND the Vet on the same day. (He is on a new set of medications – we will see how these go).
It was a nice day though. No-one died. No-one kicked me. Lots of milk. Lots of playing pigs. Including Manu who I saw dancing around in circles in his field, in the rain. I am training him to step back from his bowl when I am pouring in his food. He is slowly getting the hang of it.
I am also getting the house ready for Hugo on Friday and Pat on Monday. During the bad period with the Calves both the barn and the house got out of control so I am gradually establishing some kind of order again. I feel better when everything is clean and put away. Disorder is difficult to live in. Does my head in actually.
I hope you have a lovely day.
