Visitors and Chores
8 pens are now all raked and cleaned. The dogs, chickens, geese and ducks are happy. Diva and the girls could care less. Still have the boys and the sheep to do today. We also got 12 blueberry bushes planted yesterday. William got a little work done on the rabbit cages so we can move the buck rabbits. One doe had 6 bunnies yesterday morning. 4 of them look like Oreo and 2 are gray like their mom. These are the biggest newborn bunnies I have ever seen and from a first time mom which is unusual. We also have a week or two old bunny inside we are trying to save. The neighbors cat found where one of the bunnies that is loose had her babies and wiped them out including the mom. We hope it will make it. There was a teachers work day yesterday so no school. No school means we had the neighborhood kids here most of the day. One boy came at 7am and didn't go home till 7pm. Off and on we had 9 neighborhood kids. Ro came back for a visit yesterday with a gift of homemade cheese bread! She brought her friend and her children to see the animals. Those kids had a blast playing with the neighborhood kids. Ro is going to bring her mom to visit when the kids are in school. We had a nice visit with the kids getting to drink goats milk and have a piece of goat milk fudge. I think everyone had a good time. William and I gave the kids (goat kids) their vaccinations yesterday and moved Mandy, CC, Baby and Tiny Tina over with the kids after giving them their vaccinations. Tiny Tina has a little fainting goat in her blood. Whenever you go to pick her up she gets all stiff and falls over. Its funny but can't understand because her dad and mom are full blooded Nigerian Dwarf. All in all yesterday was a very busy day. William is still waiting on the guy to get his broke transmission out of his big truck so he can go get the working one to put in. Every day is another day without pay. Wish God had given me patience when he made me. Have a blessed day!
