There is about an inch on the ground and it is blowing a cold Northerly. Winter is already making its presence felt.
Jude the Poo Bum Piglet has at last got control of his digestive system and is improving in leaps and bounds. I cannot get a decent picture, as the moment I crouch to ground level he is racing towards me.
This is good stuff. Though now he REALLY wants to be friends with the pet pigs and all these meetings need to be supervised lest they scare him off.
Move along – move along – nothing to see here. The picture above is of the three pet pigs. Tima, Tane and WaiWai. All tucked up in bed waiting for the cold snowy night to begin.
I have started selling the last of the spring hogs which means driving my big truck and trailer off into the early mornings on Monday’s. Thank goodness I had a good drive on Monday because this morning is a slippery mess with wet snow falling then freezing solid.
The moment the rat house paddock is cleared I will bring Sheila up. She is limping and I want her closer to home.
Might take a few weeks though so I have told her to hang on down the back in her root cellar with poppy and molly.
Now that the below freezing cold is here I am carrying buckets of warm water to the animals as well as their feed so everything takes twice as long. I hope there is a thaw soon so I can get the winter hoses sorted for the cows water. That job was delegated as it needed tools and ignored and then I forgot to follow up on it. My fault. Now the hoses are frozen. Everyone is sorry but not as sorry as me as I carry buckets of water to cows!!
At what point does reminding someone of something become nagging?
I hope you have a good day.
WEATHER: clear, cold and windy. -2C here this morning.
