So, everyone itches...poor guys and gals...bad momma! But I’m working fast and furious! Then we we put to our best friend’s birthday party...it was really nice....just work today...medication for some, and trying to order what I need for the chickens!! :(

With 4 big dogs, it's hard to make it last, now that I can just go buy beef livers for 25 cents a pound, I won't ever run out!
Didn't beef liver use to be incredibly cheap because no one wanted to eat it, then "someone" decided it was healthy so people started buying it and economics kicked in. Supply somewhat limited, demand is up - raise the price! Maybe people aren't buying it much any more?

I like liver & onions! I only use calf liver, though. Also, fried chicken livers. No gizzards! No pork, it seems grainy. Young calf liver is smooth to eat.

That was a great price there Bay. When you do the two tier in your canner, is there a tall rack to set jars on the top layer?

@Duckfarmerpa1 canning is not hard, you just have to follow some guidelines. It is time consuming but, rewarding. I just canned up a lot of chicken breast, applesauce & apple butter a couple weeks ago. Yum! I will use both canners this summer when the garden comes in....you can tell I'm optimistic about a garden this year!

Water is hot for tea.... wanting something hot but don't need another cup of coffee...
And I've even made a cup of hot broth when this happens to me. Satisfying.

I'm with a lot of you -- not yet above freezing this morning. But, they say 47 later. Plus in 50s Fri & Sat, then there's that rain thing Fri night! Made sure buckets were full last night. Easier to break ice than haul hot water. :th I am enjoying my second cuppa coffee. Then, well, they are all out there patiently waiting for the keeper of the feed to get her butt in gear. I've decided they can learn to adjust their schedule.....I'm not doing early now!

Our farmer friend goes up to the butcher and gets the hearts and tongues that he’s discarded...for free...then he’s smoking them...I did not try the heart last night. Maybe next time?
its still only 12* here now..supposed to climb to 24* later..but we are to get up to 35* on sat with rain?

Eeewwww okay maybe I am just overly squishish but the tongue gross I can't stand when cows lick my hand overly slimmy much less eat it shudders.
The kids are hyper this morning they been climbing the furniture to long inside yesterday with all the rain. I release them today. But they probably get all muddy with all the puddles everywhere when our yard floods it holds water all the clay... It looked like a lake yesterday its improved some..

Mornin', y'all! :frow

@Jesusfreak101 -for some reason, I see a lot of laundry in your immediate future . . . wonder why that would be?:gig Hope the fun the kids have outside is worth the mess.


Already had as much caffeine as I dare this morning, so now working on a cup of herbal tea. Been waiting for the temps to edge up into the 50's before I go out to beef up the security on my paddock fence. While I was feeding yesterday evening, a neighbor's pit bull got under the fence and attacked my extremely elderly goat. Fortunately, I was there, so I peeled the dog off the goat and handed him back to the kids that own him before he managed to kill her. The goat is currently residing in my hay room. She's had some banamine and SMZ's this morning; the rest is up to her.

I had a hot wire a few inches off the ground on the outside of that fence, but keeping it clear was so aggravating (to say nothing about all the small wildlife it killed), I stopped maintaining it a few years ago. Looks like I need to restring and reactivate it; if that dog ever gets out again, he'll probably be back.

On a cheerier note, I finally got around to making an equine model.
A couple of ponies:

A donkey and a mule. The mule is styled after my mini mule, Betsy, though I need to add a few white touches around some of the feet to be really "her."

Oh, and @Xerocles ? Your platypus:

Sorry about your elderly goat getting attacked, I hope she's okay. Good thing you were right there. Yikes.

I love those ornaments! I have absolutely no talent for knitting or crocheting, other than making a long chain, lol, and that was when I was a teenager so even that "skill" is long forgotten.
Would you sell some through the mail? I would enjoy giving some to horsey friends and several of the little girls in my neighborhood would be delighted to have one. I have a mini mule also, that's a fun one! Platypus! You crack me up.
