I wonder if any tree has as many branches as a Bradford Pear. Teresa and I worked on it for a couple of hours this morning and got about 75% of it cut up and hauled to the burn spot. It was slow going because so many limb were on the fence and of course want to spring in a direction opposite to what I was expecting when the branches were cut.

Teresa has some sort of ear infection going on so she's going to her Doc to see if she can get a referral to an ENT. Her Doc tried to clear it out a few days ago but they didn't have much luck and probably just packed it worse.

They gave her a RX for something the other day but it has steroids in them which she can't take so we'll ask for something different today.

The proud momma Buff brought her chicks out for the first time today. We need to sell some chickens because with these and the eggs her Barred Rock are sitting on, she will have more than 30 chickens.

Chicken math! :lol::lol: Teresa has been adding up numbers again! Mo' chickies! :jumpy

I hope she gets that ear infection under control, that hurts! I woke up one morning with a sore throat, by that afternoon I knew I had an ear infection, so I told BJ we were going to the feed store. I bought fish antibiotics for $26, took the first round in the car and took my 10 day course. I knew what I had, I knew what to take....like maybe I've been there before....

Isn't Teresa allergic to antibiotics?

We had a full day planned after Teresa's ENT appointment but we wound up spending most of the day in Columbia waiting on the doctor. We got there at 11:00 for an 11:15 appointment but she didn't get seen until almost 1:00. They explained that they had "fit" her in the schedule since it seemed serious but we are OK with that. The doc thinks her ear problem is some kind of allergic reaction causing the inflammation but we went to the hospital and had blood work done and they will do more tests in a couple of weeks. Hopefully the allergy isn't to sheep or dogs or chickens or I will be busy. :)

Then we had to drive to Lewisburg for several things including sheep minerals so by the time we got home, it was 4:00 and time to go out for chores. A completely wasted day but it was spent with my best friend so not a waste at all. :)

We wanted to move the lambs in the nursery paddock where the chute is over to the next pen and then move the big bunch over to the chute since we have one lamb that needs worming. She decided she wasn't tame anymore in the paddock they are in. My girl Notag also needs to be treated for an open sore that she has. She had a puncture wound that we treated and we gave her Penicillin but we need to put some treatment over it to keep the flies off of her. I can spray her with Blu-coat out in the field but the flies don't seem to mind that plus she keeps scraping it off on the gates. We picked up a spray on bandage that we haven't tried before so hopefully it will work better than the ointment.

There is nothing that stresses me out more than planning to get a days work done after an appointment and then getting stuck out all day, finishing nothing. I can't stand it.
