I'm soooo frustrated with google blogger right now. I've been in the discussion rooms about how to fix something thats broken...The Blog Doctor has given me instructions that I have followed and still.....my updates are not showing up.....I dont know what else the "Blog Doctor" will suggest....maybe it'll get fixed....probably not...thats my luck.
We have put all the horses into the barns to get out of the nasty weather over the next few days. I'm not so much worried about the 4 over in another pasture....they are young and healthy and are more capable of handleing cold winds and even temps in the single digits...however..they dont have a shed to run in right now since we have the keeper heifers in the half of their lot that has the shed....so there is no protection from the cold wind, possible snow and rain or ice. But still...they are much younger and handle KY weather pretty good. But just in case, they are put up in the barn....its a good solid barn with no drafts so they are well protected...maybe will get bored...but out of the elements. King is another story all together due to his age, and of course little Jack is just a baby I dont know if he would withstand this cold front better or worse than the others, and since he is here at the house with King...he gets stalled up to. I'll allow those two to get out of their stalls and walk around in the barn a bit while I do some cleaning tomorrow so they hopefully wont be so bored and restless.
Norm and I fed cattle today, the keeper heifers and the 73 cows on the hill needed hay. The other bunches were all fine.
Funny thing...since we separated the Momma cows into two bunches...One pasture(Poodles-yes thats the name of that part of the farm) has 41 and the other (on the hill)had 71 for 2 or 3 months...now the hill has 73. Hmmm add water and multiply? LOL Guess there have been 2 hiding out. We always count cows all year to be sure there are no problems, a death, or illness. We count DAILY when its calving season....so how we missed those 2 are a mystery. Just like the little calf born a week before Christmas....how that immaculate birth happened we dont know. She had to have been bred the VERY last day the bulls were in which for us is odd since we had 2 bulls in that bunch that dont "miss". Oh well....at least we arent missing 2!
Tomorrow Norm has his Dr. check up...the first after his surgery. He is doing well, tomorrow making 2 weeks and he has been walking and working for a full week now! He doesnt have any pain...it just aches but he says more from the incisions than where they reconstructed his ACL that was snapped in two. I think he is doing exceptional. Lisa - I hope that your ACL repair will go just as well for you!!!!! ((((prayers are being said that that happens for you!!!))))
Well...not much to blog about....I'm feeling like $8@!, still have this fever thats lingered for over 2 months, its dreary so my mood isnt good to say the least, and I'm so freaking tired all the time its making me ill-tempered! Hopefully I'll get the whole blog thingy straightened out.
So gonna head out....
