Today I did some school, weeded the garden and looked for a new spot for the round pen...the spot where it is now gets really muddy after a rain...then I can't use it for several days so we are going to move it to a better spot. Later, I plan to plant some beets and go for a ride on Smoke.
I fixed the excerpt from my book in the previous post, Pictures of the Lotter Funny Farm....now you can read the entire thing!
Tomorrow the farrier is coming to trim Charlie's hooves...hopefully he is a good boy.
It's going to be a crazy couple months around here....we have a huge farm estate to liquidate, plus our normal auction schedule to keep and all the usual farm work. Then in the fall, we'll be starting competitions and...something else MAY happen...it's still in the infant stages of planning....I can't say any more for awhile!!! But it's going to be exciting. I wasn't thrilled about it at first but Dad's excitement has been contagious!
One of Levi's bunnies died today. We're not sure what happened. He is in one of the cages on the ground...I think something might have tried to get him last night and he had a heart attack. Rabbits get fatally frightened very easily. All the baby bunnies are growing fast and are so cute!!
I saw the fox pups again the other day...they are getting big and I think they are starting to go on hunting trips with they're mother. I sure hope Mama fox comes back next year.
Twin lambs were born the other day....the sheep just finished birthing in December but I noticed some of the other ewes are bagging up so I think we may have a second crop of lambs on the way. I caught one of the babies the day before yesterday when it got separated from it's mother...that one was a boy but I still don't know what the other one is. I'm thinking it's a boy too.
The alternator in Dad's truck went out...or rather, is going out...he's on his way out to the shop to fix it, always something going on!!
Well, if I want to plant beets, ride Smoke, work Charlie and edit my book....I'd better end this post!!
