It would not be hard to make a movie called orange this week. What with all the maples turning and the pumpkins.
I weaned the Angus mothers ( 84 and 73) from their calves on Monday and on Wednesday I opened their big door so they could see out and introduce themselves to the two black steers who live on the West Side, and yesterday I opened the gate so they could all eat together.
Because they were blended slowly they got along fine.
Today I will turn them out into the West Side fields. I like the cows to be calm when they go into a new field surrounded in electric fence. Too much push and shove can push and shove through a wire.
I think they will be alright.
I awoke this morning to find Jude asleep with Boo on the sheepskin rug beside my bed. Jude cuddled into Boo’s haunches.
Last night I put an extra gate across the barn opening to try and keep the ducks in the barn – my egg count is dropping and I think they must be laying elsewhere. And these eggs are worth 50 cents each. This is just my first idea though. I may need to close the doors altogether to keep my search area smaller. I found an egg in the boot of the cows hay car yesterday!
I hope you have a lovely day
