Busy Sunday

We took advantage of the sunshiney day yesterday and got some chores done outside. Let's start with June. She's due any day now, I had her due for today, the 14th, but it could be any time this week. I needed to clip her udder so it would be easier to see and easier to milk (you know, hairy milk isn't appetizing).

She doesn't really like her udder being clipped, but it looks so much better.

The lambs got their tails banded and the whole family got moved outside. Purl is now healing up beautifully from the stitches she got after she lambed. I have names for the lambs, but I'll do another post about that.

David and his dad tackled some of the brush that creeps into the yard every year.

Buford attacked Elmer.

And Scooter kept watch over everyone, making sure we were doing what we were supposed to do.

I cleaned out the chicken coop. I can't wait until it's warmer out so I can pressure wash the whole thing and paint the whole inside. I'm not sure why I only did the floor when we built it.

And I got a few new chickens. These are the too-small-to-process broilers from some new friends. They'll stay here for a few weeks until they're big enough.

I can't wait for the next sunny weekend day so I can cross more things off my list!

What a productive day!! Purl looks like she has a mane! :) The lambs are so cute! Buford is so funny. Good job, Scooter. Gotta keep a close eye on everyone. :)
Gotta love a post that starts off with a goat butt. :) LOL

I love your posts about 'farm life'! Lots to do and lots going on! Buford is so darned cute! Good luck to June and hopefully she kids easily and you are there to catch them! I love that Purl is doing better and boy what a long back that little ram has! Love you, Momma
