Cheer is barking, Mom is scolding her...which concluded with Cheer being let out which is what she wanted. Which reasons...why waste one's breath when there is on inevitable answer.
My 65 cattle panels arrived and I have begun to think about where I want to reinforce and section off areas. I am thinking that to have the ram lambs all gathered in one paddock would be sensible...and rotating pastures is always a wise move. I also would like to have fencing around the arena off of the many possibilities and lots of time. I remember scrambling to get fence up before I collected my first little flock...all night the day before. Now I can think it through.
Mom is getting an order up for Omaha Steaks....she goes through their offers with a fine tooth comb to get the best deal. She loves shopping.
Mother's Day was lovely. One of my brother's did help load lambs for a customer. They are really very sweet brothers. My sister is good, too...just far away. My brothers remind me of my father. I miss him very much.
Well...good rain last night, cloudy and cool today. I laid out 7 panels to wire into the east pasture. When I finish reinforcing that I can turn 2 small ponies out there and turn out the 2 larger ponies in the barnyard.
Breakfast got skipped with the arrival of panels and lunch was a reasonable 340 calorie chicken dinner, frozen. My plan is to nap a bit and work on the fence. There is a nice bit of clover, not too lush which the small ponies will enjoy. I let the sheep graze down areas first so they are safe for the equines.

    See how you keep us going? Always Sparked because Camsedge lets out a Cheer!

    I didn't know sheep could do clover. I think I got misled by an old movie when I was a teen....something about tummy bloat. (I guess just in fun we shouldn't imagine a stuff sheep like a balloon and letting the air out with it flying all around). But I do know not to let horses have too many oats. Only time when I was 4 that a 19 yr old friend half yelled at me when I was going for a second scoop of oats for the horsies as they liked them so much , but i sure didn't understand what 'high' meant. Oops, then there was that huge razorback sow..different story) .I've been told that's like catnip to them....?

    You be careful skipping meals...vitamins and nutrition...but sounds great!!

    Take care.

    As always, I love reading your stuff...reminds me so much of a day to day, in my own backyard James Herriot kinda of All Creatures Great and Small and a whole bunch of others....

    No more skipping breakfast! You did good though by not eating alot at lunch. I would have been ravenous and eaten two meals!

    I hope you at least heated your frozen chicken??? emoticon

    My DH does the same thing...thinks fussing at the dogs for barking makes a difference...then gets up and goes to the door to call them in.
