JUNE 16, 2013
BB's ARRIVAL- WAS ALMOST UNEVENTFUL-- WE LET HIM STRETCH HIS LEGS IN THE POND AREA- THEN PAUL CAUGHT HIM AND WE MOVED HIM TO PUPPY HILL SO EVERYONE COULD GET A GOOD LOOK, AND HE COULD GET SOME REST..

HE DID ROLL TWICE AND LAY DOWN FOR A FEW MINUTES ( LESSON #1 FOR CP) THEY ONLY TAKE SHORT NAPS OFF THIER FEET-- AND SLEEP VERY NICELY STANDING UP-- LYING DOWN FOR TOO LONG = SOMETHING IS WRONG...)

WE NEED TO BE CAREFUL OF THE WATER BUCKET... HE IS DRINKING OUT OF THE STAINLESS STEEL BUCKET.. BUT HE IS CLEARLY AFRAID OF IT.. IF THE HANDLE MAKES THE SLIGTEST NOISE HE JUMPS BACK-- -- SO WE NEED TO REDO THE BUCKET DEAL TODAY WITH WHITE COSTCO BUCKETS-- HE HAS A NORMAL HORSE BUCKET IN HIS STALL.

THE OTHER MAJOR PROBLEM IS THE MINI DONKEY IS IN HEAT-- AND HE WAS NOT GELDED LONG AGO- SO HE IS INTERESTED.. LUCKILY FROM THE OTHER SIDE OF THE FENCE-- AND JANINE'S 17 HAND HORSE IS VERY CONFUSED BY THE ENTIRE THING.. THERE WAS ALOT OF GALLOPING IN CIRCLES AND BRAYING.

I HAD TO PUT HIM IN OVERNIGHT -- HE WAS ALREEADY WORKING ON THE STALL DOOR WHICH GOES OUT TO THE PASTURE WHEN I LEFT- COUPLE THAT WITH JANINE'S BLACK HORSE HAS DOOR OPENING DOWN PAT- AND UNDID THE LATCH TO THE ALLEY TWICE BEFORE I GOT IT TIED SHUT.

SO THERE IS SOME CONFUSION-- MOSTLY CAUSED BY THE LITTLE FEMALE RESCUE DONKEY-- I AM WONDERING IF JANINE HAS A HOME FOR HER... SOON???? SHE IS AMUSING GALLOPING AFTER THE 17 HAND BLACK HORSE- WHEN SHE IS 32 INCHES TALL. BU FOR A WHILE SHE WILL BE VERY UPSETTING TO BB.

TO GET THIS DISCUSSION OUT OF THE WAY TO START.... WILLIAM SHAKESPEAR DECLARED THE DONKEY TO BE THE BEST ENDOWED MALE ANIMAL- I HAVE SEEN NO REASON TO ARGUE WITH THAT. SO ALL YOU CAMERA PEOPLE WHO ARE NEW TO FARM LIFE-- PLEASE DO NOT CALL ME AND TELL ME HE HAS 5 LEGS.

IF WE CAN GET HIS MIND OFF HER -- I PLAN TO HAVE HIM IN THE SMALL GRANDCHILD PEN BY THE T TENT FOR STEW... HE SEEMS TO LIKE ATTENTION...

***************

LAURA DID A GREAT JOB OVERNIGHTING-- CAMERA PEOPLE LOVED HER-- AND GOT SOME GREAT SCREEN SHOTS OF HER SLEEPING WITH THE DOGS..

THE PLACE IS CLEAN AND THE CP'S HAD GLOWING REPORTS.

SO THAT WORKED...

PLUS HER PARENTS BROUGHT CHINESE FOOD FOR SUPPER LAST NIGHT..

*****

WE FINALLY GOT THRU MOST OF THE SANDWICHES YESTERDAY.

*************

HOPEFULLY MINOR DSASTER TO REPORT-- I HAVENOT BEEN DOWN THIS MORNING YET-- COULD BE MAJOR DISASTER... WE HAD 4 DEAD CHICKENS YESTERDAY WITH THE HEADS GONE.

THAT WILL BE A RACCOON-- MAKES NO SENSE-- THEY DON'T EAT THE CHICKEN-- SEEMS LIKE THEY JUST LIKE THE KILLING.

IT IS NOT UNUSUAL FOR THEM TO GO THRU AN ENTIRE CHICKEN COOP AND LEAVE 50 DEAD HENS FOR NO APPARENT REASSON..

TODAY WE CAN TRY AND FIX THAT IF THERE ARE ANY LEFT-

RACCOONS ARE CLEVER-- AND IT IS NOT EASY TO OUTWIT THEM

SEEMS FARMING IS A CASE OF OUTWITTING SOMETHING LL THE TIME-- AND SOMETIMES WE LOSE.

******************

SPEAKING OF LOSING..... OUR MAILBOX HAD NO ANTS TODAY- I DID GET AN EMAIL FROM SOMEONE IN WENHAM SAYING THIER MAILBOX WAS FILLED WITH ANTS TOO.

MAYBE WE HAVE DISCOVERED SOMETHING REALLY STRANGE/ DANGEROUS-- THE MIGRATION OF ANTS BY FEDEX.

*************
STEWING PER NORMAL

I TOLD EARLENE TO GO HOME AND REST AND MARIA AND I WOULD MAKE A CASSEROLLE-- WE DO NOT POSSESS HER TALENT , BUT MAY PRODUCE SOMETHIGN AT LEAST NURISHING.
 
I JUST HEARD MARK WILL GRILL...

***********

GOT TO DO BETTER AT UTILIZING VOLUNTEERS-- MAYBE IF JACK GOT THE SHINGLES STARTED ON THE BACK OF THE TTENT WE COULD GET PEOPLE TO FINISH THAT-- AND SAVE HIS ENERGIES FOR MORE COMPLICATED CHORES.
