Friday Farm Fun- Modge Podge
This past week was a modge podge of farmerly duties. We've been working at a leak in the main line irritation pipe. Still haven't stopped the leak. I've been telling my hubby we need to put a new piece in, he's insisting we can stop the leak.. stay tuned for what we end up doing.
After we took three cull cows to the auction on Monday we shuffled the cattle and the four steers we're holding for some people. We put our daughter's old horse in a pasture with grass up to his knees while the easy keepers, Bud, George and Sunny are dry lotted. They stand at the fence staring out at Henry chomping away on green grass.
We have Cori and Myrtle along with their calves in a pasture by the lane that requires my packing water to their trough. The calves are growing and by keeping them all separate the Cori, the tame one, is calming Myrtle down.
We had some pretty good rain storms this week which enabled me to stay home rather than run to Princeton to start the solid hand line. Which I'm very thankful for, because I really wasn't looking forward to traveling three hours there and three hours back. That would have been six hours wasted.
This weekend we're off to celebrate my dad's 80th birthday with a family camp out and fishing trip. See you on Monday!
