Time flies when your having fun( or, working your butt off). It's been very busy around here. Between chickens,horses and cows, we have hardly had a chance to breath. Oh, and throw a birthday party in there somewhere.
Hubby has made the cutest brooder house for the chicks.
Notice Skeeter is still watching over her "babies?"
The oldest chicks have stayed out there for a few nights now. They love it. Every morning when we open their door for them to go outside, they will stand on the door and fly (well, try to fly) to the other side of their pen. As soon as I can figure out how to post videos on here I have some of the cutest videos of them. It looks like black and white popcorn.
Another video that I want to post is one of my uncles playing music at my uncle's birthday party. Okay, some of these videos are more funny than good.
Yet another thing that happened around here is we had another calf. Good news is, it was a good birth with a protective mother. Bad news, it died after a week. This is the third calf that this mother has lost. I like her, but not enough to keep her as a pet. She is going to go to the sale. Maybe she can help us catch up on some bills. We tried to bottle feed the calf, but by the time we knew the calf was in trouble, it was too late. We had to separate the mother from the calf just so we could get the calf to our barn. Remember me saying she was a protective mother? We used the truck to get in between them. Hubby jumped out, grabbed the calf, threw it up into the cab of the truck, and we drove like mad men to get to the gate. I think the momma knew her calf wasn't going to make it. She didn't try real hard to come after us like she normally does. The calf died a little after we got it away.
We also, had to play doctor to Scout.(Hubby's young colt) Somehow he skinned his leg up. We tried to keep wound solution on it. Any other time when he sees us coming to the fence, you can't keep him away. But, if you have the spray bottle in your hand, you might as well expect to chase him for a half an hour. Smart little booger. Once you catch him and put the spray on his leg, he's fine. The spray doesn't even burn or anything. He just don't want to be caught if it's not his idea. lol.
Oh, and on top of all of this, we are putting in our water line to our new house. YEA!!!!!As soon as the bathroom is hooked up, I am moving in! I don't care if there is no drywall up. I don't care if there are no rugs on the floor. I don't even care if there is no insulation. I want in my new HOUSE! It won't be long now. Double YEA!!!!!!
As soon as I can figure out how to put video on here, I will be posting some.
So until next time,
Small Farm Girl, vet.
