It’s been quite the busy week with conferences, the farm and everything.  I’ve had no time to get the camera out or even think of anything.


This is from last week.  The beans are still in the field, but it won’t be long now before they’re ready to combine.

The Letter U

I couldn’t come up with any great words for the letter u.  The only things I could come up with were unhappy or unbelievably upset.


Instead of being ugly like that, I thought I’d go unconventional.

I’ll just share the llama in his role as night watchman under the night sky.  How’s that?

Sharing with Alphabe-Thursday for the letter u.  U is for under the night sky.

A Pistol Predicament

After Pistol hurt her back, I had her in the Love Shack for a couple of days.  Even though the vet told me to watch that she wasn’t getting worse, she actually improved quite a bit.  I moved her to the greenhouse to give her a bit more room.

She’s done well in there.  She walks and can go up and down the step.  She seems mostly normal, but I do see a slight limp occasionally.  She also has a new problem.  She can’t seem to get her head back out of the cattle panel if she puts it through an opening.  Now I’ve long been impressed at her skills of maneuvering her head around to get her horns positioned just right to pull her head back out.  She can’t do it now.  So she gets stuck. And I’m at work.  So my mom is checking on her.

I can’t put her out in the Back Forty.  Even though she’s doing well, that would be very bad for her recovery.  The only thing worse would be putting her up north where there are two bucks that would breed her.  I don’t know what to do with her.
