What’s a good time without catching the Crud? I hope y’all feel better after y’all get home.
Poor little ewes! Mean ol yearlings! LOL I know they will be glad to get back home!
Y’all be safe driving home!
🤣 love the day 1 result. 🤣🤪😉😉I’m mostly recovered from the Crud. I feel fine, I’m just slightly congested now with an occasional cough.
We’re doing Thanksgiving on Friday this year due to my work schedule. I did my shopping this morning as I absolutely refuse to go on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. I’ve gotten a start on cooking. I’m simmering a turkey carcass to make stock for gravy and such. Turkey is thawing in the fridge. I’ve still got to cut up the bread to dry for the stuffing.
I’m doing normal stuffing (or is it dressing if it isn’t stuffed in a turkey?) and gluten free stuffing. I’ve been gluten free for around 15 years and there’s a few other people that will be at dinner that are also GF.
I’m going to attempt GF dinner rolls as well. I can make just about any dessert into a GF version, but yeasted breads are tricky. Store bought GF rolls aren’t that great though so I’m going to give it a try.
I’m trying a new feeding plan for the lambs. I’m waiting to pull the last ram until I can see if 2 of the ewes re-cycle again and then the ewes and lambs will have to live together for the winter. The lambs will need to be fed grain, but I don’t want to supplement the ewes until close to lambing.
So here’s the plan: every day during chores, all 10 ewe lambs will be caught, haltered, and tied. They will then each get their own feed pan with a specific amount of feed.
How it went Day 1: Lots of angry, screaming lambs who refused to eat their grain because they were tied up. 🤦🏼♀️ 🤣
Any bets on how many days it takes them to stop being upset?
The rams were successfully released from lockup this afternoon. They’ll probably have to get locked up again when Banff gets pulled from the ewes.
