Sheep Tales/not well yesterday
Saturday, October 03, 2015
Good Saturday Morning everyone. A cool start here, down to 38 this morning, but this morning there is a little breeze, so it is really chilly outside. Definitely Fall is in the air.
Boy, did I screw up this morning, after I got all the chores done and was out watching the boys food bowl while they eat, otherwise the cat eat it and the dogs don't get to eat. Anyway, I turned around and here were all the sheep and the goat eating their way across the yard. Then it hit me, yesterday when I lock them out of pen 3 I left the gate open cause I was going to put them back in there this morning, but my mistake, I went thru a different gate not ever thinking, and they just walked right out. I got another pail of feed and Sophie, the goat will follow you anywhere for food so she lead them all back in to pen 1 where there bunk is, except 1, it wouldn't follow the rest. So I walked around and shut the gate, and then just waited. Now if haven't been around livestock you have no idea how nervous a herd animal gets when they find them self on the wrong side of the fence. So I just waited and a s soon as they ate the corn they ran around thru pen 1 and 2 into 3, right beside another gate, so just opened that gate and back off and it walked right in, I walked up and shut gate and problem solved. Took about 10 min. and all was calm and no one got stressed out except the one that wouldn't go in in the beginning. Just another day on the farm. I have to compliment Merlin, he knew things weren't right and stayed by my side and didn't try to chase them, now that would have been a disaster.
Yesterday after I wrote my blog I was checking out FB I started to get light cramps, then big cramps, and I spent the rest of the days with chills, and not far from the bathroom. This morning I feel good, just a little more tired. It's a good thing too, cause our little town is have a 3 day flee market, and I wanted to go today. It started last night, but didn't want to chance it. There is a list of vender and it looks like there is about 50 or more booths this year. So going to put my jacket and running shoes on and go shopping. LOL.
Well, you all have a GET day, mine is going to the flea market and finding a bargin I can't refuse. Linda
