I give in. She is not a Bobby so now she will have a name and join the heifers. This calf is the tamest calf I have ever seen, she will literally stand while I stroke her all over. Too sweet to send back. Pure-bred Hereford. I guess she has joined the fold.
Molly is literally eating everything, at the risk of the field I had to put her out for a long while yesterday. She is eating sticks, she never has any bedding – she eats it all, she eats the walls and has started on the door. I do not know what is going on. However she is happy eating grass outside and digging holes. Better than her eating my barn. I guess she has cravings. Do pigs have cravings?
I think Lady Astors udder is getting bigger but longer not wider. Not filling up. One month to go.
Tia looking beautiful with TonTon.
The white flock has moved into the tin chicken tractor in the garden. Their job is to clear and scratch up a new strip of vegetable garden. Once they get used to it they will realise they are much happier in there.
The turkey house will be cleaned out and sanitised for the arrival of the first batch of meat chickens that arrive next week.
Good morning. Yesterday was a pearl of a day and we began to edge and organise the first gardens in preparation for planting. Though the wind was blowing it was from the North and the first gardens are on the South of the house so we were sheltered and happy.
Last night was clear, I saw the moon for the first time in a long time. The wind comes today with some warmth. But we need the wind to dry that big pig garden. The warmth will be very much enjoyed.
I hope you have a lovely day.
Day: Abundant sunshine. Warmer. High 69F. Winds S at 15 to 25 mph.
