the cows don't know about weekends.............

Shame the cows don't know your suppose to have a rest on the weekend...............
Sometimes when your busy weekends disappear into the week.............but when your on a feeding routine there is not really any room for moving around..........it's 7 days a week here.........
Except when things go pear shaped like yesterday and my cows here missed out on their feed.......I fed the calves after dark but I wasn't going to feed the cows then...............
Sadly one of the cows from this mob didn't come in for feeding this morning...............not sure what happened to her but I found her dead up the paddock........I can't work out which baby is hers yet and she died maybe a couple of days ago so I am hoping her calf is sneaking a feed off the other Mum's............

The sheep are fed daily and the calves morning and night...............I lost one of the new ones today.........so back to 20......6 are on milk at the moment.....sometimes you get a cow/calf and they just give up............I think this is what happened to this calf............
Here are Mini and Minor saying hi........Mini is growing be he is still tiny............

Still haven't worked out if my cows here are being fed every 2 or 3 days..............
But we are feeding on 2 other properties every 2 days so it is a big day coming up again tomorrow............but I will be trying to get things done quicker tomorrow not that I am sure it is possible but a little delay here or there like yesterday can really throw the day out.............
&&&&
Was nice to have lunch with a couple of neighbours today.............
Its amazing what you can do when you only have 30mins to cook and clean.............
It was simple but it was nice to just get together.....and they weren't expecting the Royal Doultan and a 4 course dinner..................
Catch you later

  2. Good to know you can take a quick break with the neighbours for lunch, even if the cows don't want you to relax on the weekend
