Another Countdown or Two

10 Mar

Four days until the first girls are due to have babies. It will be just a couple of days before I start sacrificing my sleep for the safe arrival of those little bundles of joy.
We’ve kind of stalled out on the new cattle tank. It has something to do with sinking down in the mud that sucks on your boots making you think you’re going to have to sacrifice the footwear and go barefoot to escape it. At least the warm weather and rain have water running through the drainage ditch so the cows and llama have plenty to drink.

Isn’t it a lovely home I bought with the farm?

It won’t be long until we start tearing down the house on the new farm. It might be as soon as this weekend when we start. The plan is to keep the wood and rebuild my little chicken building where Lily and Dolly are right now getting ready to have babies. I also want to put up another building with birthing pens. We’re a bit crowded for space right now.
We still need to take down the corn crib and fence to make room for the crops also. There are a couple of big dead trees that are coming down too. I finally have the deed, so I get to go to the FSA office and register the farm so we can have the NRCS come to lay out waterways.
I’m thinking it’s going to be a very busy spring!
