    My '04 Tacoma has a little over 260K miles on it. It is still my primary work truck and will be for awhile unless it starts having problems.

    Teresa & Mike CHS - Our journal

    Today is colder and windier than yesterday so other than normal chores, there won't be a lot done outside today. Teresa said she wanted to clean house and I want to mill some oak for her to practice with the scroll saw we got her for Christmas. When I was driving down to the state line to...

    We wimped out today. It wasn't terribly cold but it only got up in the 30's and the wind was gusting to 35 mph. We love our hill country but the wind in January can be painful. :) We had planned on giving shots to the lambs today but decided to put it off since there was already plenty going...

    Jan, this is the first time it's happened to us but I know of several other growers that have had it happen.

    This fetus definitely came from the latest as it was found in an area that I am in several times a day. It very well could have died in the womb but it was actually quit a bit bigger than the smaller of the two twin rams that were born.

    This ewe had trips before but this lamb only looked like 4 months developed.

    I forgot to post the picture that Teresa took when we were out banking up the hay inside the panel. This ewe is one of our registered ewes and looks big but she has such a thick hair coat that you can take off 20 pounds of her weight estimate. I can get within a couple of pounds estimating...

    Baymule’s 2021 Lambing

    That's what I guessed but wanted to make sure. The lamb has some nice lines and long legs. :)

    One of the remaining two ewe holdouts had lambs this morning. You could tell from the living room window that she was lambing about 7:30 this morning so I went out to see what was happening since it was time to break the ice in the water trough anyway. The lamb is a ram but she looked like she...

    Thistleblooms Rambles

    I strongly that both of you have hit on what appears to be going on. A couple of years ago I started browsing the news medias web sites and it was pretty obvious they were all using the same play book so I quit watching. I literally don't believe anything I read on the net unless I can get a...

    I can get mine to sit but that's about it for the guardians. :)

    That snow storm got here last night but ours is still on the ground.

    Lol yet another fencing thread

    The hot wires aren't attached to the fence but are ran above the fence. If an animal touches both a hot and ground wire at the same time, they close the circuit and receive a shock.

    Lol yet another fencing thread

    I think you will like that fence. I have one run that had a tree fall down on it and packed down about the top 18 inches. I cleared it off and only the top couple of inches were bent down and I was able to straighten that out. I do have hot and ground on top that held a lot of the weight. It...

    We have been bringing the sheep in and doing what little needs to be done. All of this rain has a few of their hooves that needed a bit of work but we try not to do any more than necessary. The main bunch of lambs are growing really nice and they are from 5 to 7 weeks old. We plan on bringing...

    Our hills do get on the slick side and fortunately we don't have to deal with it often and they do offer some fairly good cardio work. :)

    B&B Happy Goats....journal

    I saw a couple of articles where there was a couple of bus loads of Antifa type folks and also that face recognition software showed pictures of a couple of them going into the capital building but no links. It doesn't matter since the program now is to blame it on Trump for drawing the crowd.
