    I got grass seed broadcast and ran the harrow over the area that was worked by the dozer yesterday. All of the rain that has been forecast in the last week has passed us by but we got a nice steady rain this afternoon that will hopefully help germinate the seed. It's supposed to be a bit milder this coming week which will help make up for planting this early.

    The cat has decided this is home and quickly taught the dogs to keep their distance. We were going to name her Jekyll and Hyde but she quit attacking our feet if you stopped messing with her before she had enough. I know there are some that say not to pet too much but I make everything on our place want contact. :)

    I have to smoke some more brisket as I used the last of it this morning to make some hash.

    we brought the ram lambs in and gave the registered boys a bath but hosed all of them down. Feet were good and we pulled fecals on all of them to check.

    A little touch of Fall is in the air. I went out and hauled water and fed Maisy and never even broke a sweat. Up until today I've been going through a couple of sets of clothes every day. We have a rack outside the door that we can put the wet clothes on and with the sun and heat they would be dry in about 30 minutes. A couple of pictures of a couple of the boys since I had the camera and they were clean for a change. :)

    What's extra nice about them is both are calm but confident just like Ringo.
