After last week’s tooth extraction, quad birth and my birthday I had hoped things would slow down…not so. The three bucklings from the quad set were sold and needed to be ready to go as bottle babies in a couple of weeks. They needed to be disbudded and castrated as well.
The garden needed tending. I brought in some fresh spinach and I made a quiche this week. I finally got twelve pints of spaghetti sauce done for our Wednesday suppers this summer.
Husband has steadily worked on the wood. He has cut and stacked almost two cord so far.
We separated the small bucks, Finn and Peppe from the does and doelings. They were just coming into their own and I didnt’ want any “oops” breedings. I thought Miss Yuki would be very unhappy but she lays next to the gate and that satisfies her. She also has befriended Haile who’s daughter was sold last week.
Westie continues to amaze me with her mothering skills, so much so, that it has been work to get the boys on bottles. She is producing well and doing a good job.
Oh, and the smell of these Amity Lilacs has wafted through the window all day. Intoxicating!
