AS SOME OF YOU MAY HAVE REALIZED, I AM
TAKING A BREAK, NOT A PLANNED ONE. THIS
BREAK IS NEEDED BECAUSE THERE IS SO MUCH
HAPPENING ON THE BAR H.
THE THREE HENS ARE STILL HERE, BUT MISS
PEARL, my favorite, SEEMS TO HAVE BROKEN
HER “ankle” AND I AM NOT SURE WHAT IS GOING
TO HAPPEN WITH HER.
Today they are coming to replant out pasture. This winter we are the victims of Army Worms and they destroyed nearly all the grass in the pasture.
This means we have no grass for our goats and we are forced to turn them loose in parts of the property that are not properly fenced.
It also means we have a crew due today and tomorrow to disk the entire pasture and replant.
Tomorrow, I have crew another crew coming to fence a part of the back pasture to prevent the goats from getting into our neighbors property and prevent the predators from hopefully getting in.
The part that makes it hard on me……….Roy is at work and I am in charge of being sure everything is done correctly……..
YEP…you guessed it…….WHAT DOES A CITY GIRL
KNOW ABOUT PUTTING UP FENCE…..NOT MUCH,
BUT I HAVE 2 PAGES OF INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW
ROY WANTS IT DONE.
My neighbor, not next door, my next door neighbor is about 6+ acres away on one side, informed me yesterday that he had trapped three Bobcats and killed about 15+ coyotes in his back pasture, which joins ours where I am having to put up new fence. I will start carrying my gun back there with me, but I doubt the cowards would come out while I am back there.
Thank goodness I have Pilgrim and Mary to guard my goats.
Well, I also have been trying to work in my yard, keep the house clean and do some crafting. I am making gift tags to give as a thank you for the hostess when I play bridge or bunko.
Well, if you have stuck around long enough to read this entire PITY PARTY I am having….I will stop and let you move on.
Hopefully by Wednesday, when Roy comes home, things will have settled down and I can get back to visiting and maybe post a word or two.
On days like this, it is nice to have blogging friends to leave messages.
