heather! So sorry about your hen. I will be.chucking watermelon to the chooks today and hosing down the pigs.. Tomorrow's supposed to be even worse. No fox slippers for me yet. I have to get a Great Pyrenees, I just can not commit. Our youngest is coming up on a birthday. She asked for a cow, think I can give her a dog instead? She says 'a milk cow, not a beef cow, and get me a girl so she can have babies'. What she should be asking for is a BARN. We got no where to keep a cow. Cow's are a little out of our league just yet. Of course I'm thinking about how I may just be able to fit it in my car.... And once I get it home, we'll figure it out from there.
