Lost and sometimes found blog. It seems that every year from the week before Thanksgiving until the week after new Years I’m up to my knees in Parana’s. Places to go, people to see and an untold number of things needing to be done.
It’s still 120 days(4 months) until it will be garden planting time, but, I don’t know if I can wait that long to plant ‘something’!!
It’s only 3 more weeks until Christmas and I’m still recovering from Thanksgiving Day.
I think that we should pass a law that clearly states anyone 65 or older need not smile, say Merry Christmas or put money in those red kettles that seem to be blocking ever business entry door.
I am amazed, shocked and so happy.
The truth of the matter is we had more cows, horses and donkey than we have pasture grass. Hence we are having to buy way to much hay to feed our livestock this winter and spring.
Last week I ran an advertisement listing one – 3 year old longhorn cow (a proven breeder) and one – 14 month old (breeding age) longhorn heifer.
I ran them (cow & heifer) across the scales and the 2 of them together weighed 1620 pounds. Last week at the Apache livestock auction longhorn cows and heifers sold for $2.10 to $2.45 a pound. I sold my two longhorns for $3,400.00. That’s totally unbelievable. $2.10 a pound, (live weight) for a longhorn cow and heifer.
After selling a cow and heifer we still have a yearling heifer and two older longhorn steers to send to the butcher as needed.
My 2 laying hens aren’t. I think they have gone out on strike. Smile or they are still in molt and will soon start laying again.
I had a serious accident back in June this year. I screwed-up badly, I didn’t get my kennel gate latched properly and my female border collie looking dog found my eager to please blue heeler and something mix male. Sooooo… I now have 5 Christmas puppy’s to get rid of. I think I will put them on Craigslist as ‘Free’ Christmas puppy’s. At any rate I can’t keep any of them, I have 3 dogs as it is!!! Two more than I really need. Just soft headed I guess.
