Another rainy day here at the farm. Dreary to be honest. This is what our 4th or 5th day of rain. Its not an all day rain. Its the kind that makes you think oh it stopped raining finally I will go outside. So you get ready to walk out the door and bam, there it goes again. The animals arent enjoying it much either. I must say though with the rain,my goats havent escaped from their new pens.
My neighbor called me yesterday telling me he thought the goats and sheep were out the other day. They were at his house. Now mind you, this gentleman has spent alot of money on his rock banking,flowers galore. He wanted me to know that as soon as the ground is workable meaning not raining and dried enough to play in, he would be adding to his flower garden, In other words, I am warning you I am putting flowers in and dont want them eaten. Really sweet guy. Believe me Nick ,I would love some flowers also.
Scaling back on my herd of goats, all males in any fashion cut,banded or intact that arent going to be eaten are going. Ok well except the horses. Keeping my girls and I will borrow a buck if needed. Its getting to be not fun any more. When I worry constantly did a male jump the fence,break threw it or are they in the road again. Its time to rethink things. Never mind the cost of grains and hay.
Will add to the poultry level but four legged need to scale back. Even cutting back on bunnies, hate having them in cages in summer its just to hot and not fair to them. If they are loose these dogs will kill them. Speaking of dogs they wont like me after the pigs are gone, because summer time will be kennel time for them.
Today is a good sit by the fire day with a good book,knitting or sewing. Maybe even a little cooking. Cooling again I need to fire up the cookstove and wood furnace again. Every thing is just damp an dreary. No clothes line drying today.
Have a few craft fairs coming up, trying to come up with ideas of simple things, usefull things that might sell that arent to costly to make.
Well I suppose the coffee cup is empty thats my hunt to get busy.
I pray you all have a great day.
