Good Morning everyone !!
Had a good nights sleep, in the car last night. We went to town for the shrimp special and haystacks and when we got home I put the seat back and fell asleep. Woke several times but to lazy to go in the house !!!! Now sitting in front of the fan nagg-ed. Drinking my cuppa and trying to motivate myself.
On the chicken front, I have 16 chicks just hatched (was 17 but lost one) They look to be mostly Black Australorps. Got 3 doz eggs from the neighbors flock. They have mostly BA hens, and a few BR and BO hens and a BA roo. The BR and BO are older hens.
I'm keeping them separate from my eggs so I can tell them apart. So far looks like I have about 8-10 of my eggs hatching in a separate bator. I see one paint silkie in there.
Then of course I have more eggs that are due in a few days up til a week or so. Dang OM DH, he is the one that wanted more chicks. I am really getting tired of the feed bill.
VW, do you have beef or dairy cows? Why the hay? I forget !!
And speaking of cows. We were at a place Friday that had one of those humped back cows with the horns. One of the horns was broke off and had black smelly stuff on it and the flys were all over it.
Does anyone know if/or how dangerous this could be for the animal. I talked to my neighbor who has limousine's and she said it can spread down the horn and actually kill the poor guy?????
I also got 5 guinea eggs from these people to hatch. They are not pearls but dark, ???? on color but will add them to my flock. I love guineas. She had some I think cayuga ducks (black that I could of had but don't want to start another breed)
Ok, well I had better get to sending this before it is afternoon.
Oh and BBP, I thought of you when Bl4 mentioned netflix. There is a horse flix out there. The website is www.giddyupflix.com I was a member until DH lost his debit card and I never renewed. I think I'll do that this week.
They rent out dvd's all horse related. I think you and your family would really enjoy it. All sorts of training dvd's and I'm sure dvd's about birthing etc. Check it out.
Bl4............ Good job at keeping cool when the cops knocked at your door. We don't need two of us in the slammer.
I called and talked to someone at the barn yesterday about the rescue horse Cody. He had his feed done and the farrier said he had nice hard hooves. He is slowly gaining a bit of weight and the vet said when he builds up some more muscle mass he can go out with the herd. In the mean time he is building up quite the bill for the owners. Now wonder how much they will take for him if/when that ever happens. Still don't know when her court date is.
BBP it is hard to get the sheriffs department to do anything. I was really shocked (but glad) that they actually took Cody the day they went there. If those horses have food and water and I guess even just trees for shade their hands may be tied.
I'd start with the sheriffs office. Even if it's just a phone call giving the address. Have other people call as well. There is strength in numbers !!! Good Luck. Keep us posted. Between all of us on here we can save alot of horses in WI !!!! Oh and donkeys.
Speaking of donkeys I see there is stallion standard donkey on CL. Sure wish he was spotted. I'd get him in a heart beat and breed my two Jen's !!!. Did I ever tell ya all that I love donkeys ???
TO Congrats on the wins, yes pictures would be nice. So how many entered.... 1? lol Just kidding !!
Doc... I still love you even if you never told me I was cute !!!!!
Sorry all of you that didn't get rain. We got it because we had some of our hay baled and while we were gone Friday it got rained on. TG there are only 169 bales and looks salvagable because I have so many mouths to feed.
Oh and welcome any Newbies...... Don't let any of these strang people fool ya........ CC, Tiki and I are the Bestest......LOL
Ok, didn't I say I was going to be sending this off ???? Bf4m if you weren't so cute you'd be included !!!!!
Oh and there are others, like VickyW, Bl4, MLH, HNR(hens and roos), DAS, and all the other ladies on here.
It's the guys you have to look out for...... Jimbo, Drha, Unkadan........... Now Bigz and Ken are alright (Ken only cause your a preacher !! LOL)
