Go Away, Rain!

5 Oct

We’re still in the weather pattern of too wet.

We had over two inches of rain Tuesday into Wednesday, and we’ve and another round of heavy rain this morning.

Everything is miserable and muddy.  That means, I did not sell little boys today.  (Grumble, grumble, grumble.)

Xerxes, Mary, Gidget, and Tootles

I’m babying Chiffon because she was not doing well with the rain.  We couldn’t get her by herself in the barnyard to give her sweet feed, so she spent a couple of days shut in the milk room.

Chiffon

That made it fun to milk those cranky girls with the little kid in there.  I’ve built a small pen and moved Chiffon into the greenhouse.  I do think she’s looking a little better, but it’s always such a long road to recovery.  [Edit: I did just see her chewing her cud while I was doing chores, so that is an improvement!]

No, you may not join me in the soap room.

I still need to get everyone else copper.  Again, it’s not easy to do anything in the mud (especially take blog pictures).
