Mixed bottles for the Big Black Twins. They were screaming for them when they heard the barn door close.
Four new born lamb cords clipped and dipped. Three sweaters on. Mom doesn't want any part of me pulling on her teats. She's about 200 pounds and I'm not. She won. Blocked triplets mom with babies together with plywood found in the hay mow.
Milked out Edie fed her ewe lamb. Edie's not crazy about me pulling on her teats either.
Toted hay and water to maternity ward, forked hay to the way back, carried water to them.
Carried water and feed to the piggies, who wanted to eat the new lamb born near their fence. Not a chance.
Fed watered bunnies.
Fed and watered chickens.
Oh, and walked the dogs.
Back inside. Quickly fried the egg I found under a rooster in the chicken room and put in on the rice from last night. Just like grits! Yummy...
My day has just begun. Keeping 23 lambs alive is a big job.
