Not good for a photographer. Ah well, today is Day Three of the IcePick Headache Bad Head so I am sure you will forgive me the camera shake. I feel so sorry for people who deal with pain on a daily basis. I should be grateful that all I have to deal with is the occasional Bad Head.
And what a misery of a day yesterday was – it rained and blew, the clouds were low, the fog thick, the light dim and slowly it got colder.
Two middle sized pigs (the smaller hand reared ones) have been slow to pick up – still not eating much. They are too old for this kind of problem. They will go off on jaunts around the field and chew on grass but then straight back to bed. No fighting for food. I am still concerned.
Everyone got an extra portion of straw to help with the cold last night: we are drifting down into another cold snap again, though so far I see nothing below 0F/-17C . I don’t call it cold until we get down to 0F. We all do ok below freezing. Sub zero is the killer.
Actually wind is the killer! Luckily everyone has good deep beds out of the wind. It will be chilly today with wind but I am promised some sun.
Some days on the farm in the winter are kind of dull to report on. But this is what farming is like out here. Some days are dreary, it is real life.
I need to shut this screen off now. Get moving.
I hope you have a good day.
