ANOTHER BABIES IN THE PAYPEN!

Yesterday while Juan was working in the yard, I turned of the electric fence and one of the baby goats climbed under and got in the yard.     Although my dogs have about 3-4 acres to run in, they consider it their yard and usually kill anything that enters. Example:   skunk, armadillo, etc.  and  even though they see the goats everyday, they are strangers in their yard.

They got the baby goat, but I got there before  they could do any real damage, we hope.  The torn the skin on his gut but it doesn’t appear that they punctured it.  Of course, the local feed stores were out of items needed to sew the wound together.  My husband said they always super glued their hog hutting dogs, so we had no choice by to try that, he was already swelling and it was 8 up.m. He got a shot for infection and now we will pray.  He is standing up this morn and he did eat and drink.  Roy says he stands a chance it he doesn’t go into shock.  We get upset and  punish the dogs, but we really can’t blame them.  They are not allowed in any pasture, so the yard is their territory.

We worked hard yesterday cleaning the yard 3 plus acres and picking up fallen branches in the pasture.

Roy goes back to work for a week today, so most major work will end, but Juan will come Friday and finish some little things.

My Daughter is coming Sunday, I haven’t seen her in over a year,  she has a large ranch with many cows and goats and lots of acreage.  She also has an incurable disease, that limits  traveling and last year I had back surgery, so I didn’t travel.  But now the time is right..Thank the lord.  We talk real often, but it is not the same.

Today is Bunko……Tomorrow is Bridge…Friday is clean house and finish yard . 

Will Post some delicious goat cheese recipes tonight .  Please give at least one a try

TOMORROW LAST DAY TO REGISTER FOR PINK HEART BRACELET.

SEE Y’ALL,

BARBARA

Hi Barbara,
Sounds like you had a busy day there! Enjoy the visit with your daughter.
Take a peek at the birdhouse on my blog and see if it will work for you. If not I will list it.
Blessings,
