It’s never dull here. Darling Husband was building a fire this morning so I thought I would walk Dakota and feed the cattle at the same time. This is what greeted me when I got to the cattle.
I ran to the house, put Dakota in, asked a kid for my camera, then asked Darling Husband to come help me. He had no idea what he was coming out too- he hadn’t moved from the fire.
We moved the sheep again today. They are along the top of the property. We moved them on Sunday and I realized right away they were not going to last long eating the area we had them in so they have been getting a lot of hay lately. Teen Son and I had planned on moving the sheep when he got home today. A neighbor called today to see if his grandkids could come over and give them some grass. I was embarrassed that they were in such a stripped out area, but I knew the sheep would be happy so had them come over.
Teen Son came home with several other FFA (Future Farmer of America) boys. So I had 4 teen boys helping move the fencing, nice! Stick Boy watched the sheep while we moved the fencing. Then we all herded the sheep into their new area.
I read a lot of blogs and enjoy “Life on a Kansas Cattle Ranch”. Earlier this week she posted a recipe: http://kansascattleranch.blogspot.com/2013/01/meaty-monday-best-bbq-meatballs-ever.html, we tried it tonight and it was wonderful.
