Dale Anne sounds like a routine day here on the Crippled G...Our Jersey milk cow...Ms.Ellie decided to break into the calves pen last night...wanting grain for sure...We weaned her little feifer about amonth ago...Well Star baby saw Mamma's full teats and decided to suck like there was no tomorrow...This morning when we went to milk there was Ms. Ellie looking sheepishly and Star looking full...Ofcorse having this big heifer suck and bump you all night was not easy on Ellie...Her bag was sore...She had MAtt acussin before daylight...which is not really unusal...She did good at evening milking though so maybe the soreness is better...MAtt went around and changed the way all the gates close...The Jerseys open chained gates...I would have thought impossible if I had not seen them do it...Scarey sometimes how smart they are...
HAd to clip my roos and 2 hens wings...kept flying out the pen...The hens were easy but Big Red took exception to being caught...but as of tonight his wings have been clipped and he is grounded...
As the day ends I am on the puter and hubby is watching TV...says there is "mating" every show he turns too...Imagine that...I will quit a rambling now...KAtG
