Routines And Animal Updates
Over the Easter week-end I had family visiting, it has been a hectic few weeks and now its time to get back into the old familiar routine, I like routine and its good for all the livestock, it also makes it easier to manage them.
The pigs are growing so fast they will only be with us a few more weeks, they have done a great job at clearing the land, they are also great for disposing of wheelbarrows of weeds that I bring over to them. As soon as they see the wheelbarrow coming they start squealing.
The goats have all settled into a new routine now they have kidded, the kids are picking up on it too, Helen is being milked every day and is getting used to going up on the milking stand.
The kids are now having tastes of whatever there mums are eating.
The little chicks have hatched, out of the nine eggs set we had 7 hatch, one didn't make it so we are now left with 6 chicks, I might set another clutch later on haven't decided yet.
Tess has now slimmed down to 32kg, she can now sit on touch command, she takes her lead from Sol. A treat is always a good incentive too.
The young dove can now be seen taking to skies with its parents,
long may it continue.Its lovely when everything settles into a routine
