Sunday...the day of rest. I try to not write a lot on a Sunday. Not talking much is difficult for me. Enough said about that. :)
It is a cold morning here in Ohio. We just put a front behind us that brought rain, ice, and fog with it. This morning the remnant is frozen mud. I do not mind the cold, in the 20's, nor the frozen mud. The temporary lack of mud is a good thing, and it will be back later this evening!
This is a picture of Annie's kids from several years ago. She always has beautiful twin kids, normally bucks.
On the subject of kids, I have several things in alignment today (and this week). A full moon, boer goats that have not started kidding yet, udders coming in, ligaments loosening, and at least one (as of this morning) with an udder that tells me kids within 24-48 hours. Last but not least, we are going to see single digit mornings this week.
As an 8-year on the job farmer, I have learned several things. One is to watch the weather forecast. In the summer it can mean running the water hoses to the vegetable garden. In the winter it can mean plugging the barn monitor in to ensure I do not have newborn kids with frozen ears. It definitely takes calendars, weather forecasts, and my attention. If I get quiet, or if I start writing weird things, you'll know the ball has started rolling. I don't mind a correction now and then, I might need it! :)
Take care...and have a beautiful Sunday!
