... Thirteen is a lucky number, right?
I have lost count on boys vs, girls so far, but these 2 are both ewe lambs, now
if we could just get some rain so the grass will start to sprout, really going to need
pasture to start producing to cut down on hay bill. There are still 6 more Dorper ewes some look close to being due and one or two don't even look pregnant, but give them time, LOL.
At least there is still a few more months before the Shetlands start lambing and I still have 3 more
Shetland ewes to put in with the rams next week.
While feeding a few days ago I saw a dead bird on the other side of the fence in
neighbor's field, looked a little bigger than a dove, so I went and looked at
it but did not have camera. It was missing the head but looked like a young
hawk. Well now there is just a pile of feathers and yes it was a young red tail.
Lately the news has been hyping up that California is due for a BIG storm, well I am a little
better prepared than some of those on the east coast, just because I don't live near the grocery store I am
used to stocking up. Matter of fact last week when I went to the store it had been 2 weeks since I went to town. But it is now time to keep the diesel can full for the Mule and I think if the price of gas goes down a bit more I will fill the tank in the truck. I never let my tank in the truck go below a quarter of a tank because I don't want to have an emergency and have to go somewhere at night a search for an open station. But with the prices lately I don't fill it up either, just $20 - $40 depending on my plans for the week. If I filled it up all the time I would probably be found out joyriding taking pictures everywhere.
Have a good day, stay safe,
