It is insane here this week. We’ve had a forestry mulcher here. Got 2 granddaughters, age 2 & 4, plus their 2 dogs. Dogs are small enough to go under gates, go through cow panels, have to watch them closely. Great Pyrenees are on lockdown so they don’t make a snack of the interlopers. They aren’t happy. I’m giving them dog popsicles, half frozen pork bones, to pacify them. We have cut gaps in fence in 2 places so mulcher can go on neighbors property. Horses are at another neighbors. The 40 bales of hay we got were put up too wet and are hot and moldy in the middle. I guess we have hay mulch now. We have company coming Friday, meeting friends for dinner Saturday and more friends coming Sunday. :barnie:barnie:barnie:barnie:barnie:barnie

When the babies go home Friday morning I think I need a drink and I don’t men iced tea! :lol:

You can still have iced tea, hard iced tea that is. I have a bottle of apple cinnamon flavored moonshine that I add to my iced sweet tea, oh so good!

if you have your feed made they have a fat oil that you can add in kind of like the molasses was added in and it is less expensive than whole sunflower seeds. It does a really good job of putting weight on and glossing their coat. assuming of course they have a good hay a good ration vitamins and minerals too.

you can also throw in some beet pulp or whole roasted soybeans that helps
