Probably getting enough from the pasture and stealing from the other ewes. How old is she now?
6 weeks. Refuses a bottle, bowl of milk, but will eat pelleted feed. So I put some out for her, naturally she choked on it and scared me half to death. If she stays a tiny little bit of dandelion fluff, I’ll find her a pet home.Probably getting enough from the pasture and stealing from the other ewes. How old is she now?
OH no. Arnica for your hand NOW.I am furious. Buford had something white out in the field. Cattle egret? Lamb? I ran. I don’t run good, but I ran. Lamb. Not just any lamb, it was Dandelion. He had her down, she got away and ran and he downed her again. He saw me and knew he was in trouble. I grabbed his collar and dragged him to Lucy and the triplets. I was so mad that i slapped his face, I yelled, I slapped him so hard I hurt my hand. I put him in the kennel. I’m still breathing fire.
She is so tiny, she excites the prey drive in Carson. There is a fence between them, but he alerts and jumps at her. Big trouble. I had a tiny little lamb born in a snow and ice storm a couple years ago, she stayed hunched up and resembled a rabbit. Carson alerted on her and so did Trip. Both wanted to “get” her.
Buford is in big trouble. I’ll calm down, take him back to square one. He’s going to be seeing a lot of the kennel.
I’m still furious.
Sounds like a plan to me. You know I'm a BIG fan of 'use what ya got'. You'd need to overlap a good bit to make sure they don't eventually tilt & slide under the mud like a mini version of plate tectonicsLet me throw this out there. Remember the pictures of where I want to put the small barn? The standing water? Low spot? Agricultural fabric was suggested as a means to keep the fill dirt from sinking into oblivion.
Here’s what I’m thinking. I have to replace my roof, 14 squares. Why not use the torn off shingles for underlayment in the barn? I can park my flatbed at the end of the house, toss shingles on it and pull it in the field. Lay out shingles, pulling tacks, staples, etc and call the dump truck.
Getting a roll off dumpster for the waste shingles will cost about $800. Buying the agricultural fabric would cost money too. The shingles would be free, no cost for disposal, only my time for clearing out tacks, and I’ve got time…… LOL
If I have enough, I can also lay some for the “road” part from the driveway to the barn for unloading feed.
