30 DAYS HATH SEPTEMBER, BUTJANUARY 2018 WILL HAVE 111.. YESTERDAY- NEARLY PERFECT SPRING DAY..- INCLUDING ALOT OF SANE AND HAPPY PEOPLE WHO CAME TO ENJOY ( AND WEAR OUT) THE PUPPIES...AND WHAT BETTER WAY TO FINISH TEHE DAY THAN TO HAVE A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN OVER DONKEY NIPPLES !!
BAby donlkeys may be teh cutest baby-- but watching them try and find a nipple has to be teh most un- nerving experience... after trying the walls, teh water buckets and the door latch, they finally find mommy-- wrong part/right head position... RIGHT PART / WRONG HEAD POSITION.... nice try but milk does not come out of that part...- unless there is some extenuatinG circumstance, they do eventuslly figure it out... i hoppe this new baBY HAS IT DOWN PAT-- I QUIT WATCHING ON THE COMPUTER... AND WENT TO BED... IN A NUTSHELL TEH FIRST BUNCH OF MILK CONTAINS TEH COLOSTRIUM WHICH HAS ANTIBODIES AND TEHY MUST GET SOME EITHER FROM THERE OR A SYRINGE FROM A VET ( WHICH IS NEW TO ME BUT BRYAN MENTIONED IT.) I ALWAYS HEARD FIRST 24 HOURS-- JANINE HAS HEARD 4 HOURS... PUTTIN G MORE PRESSURE ON ANY WATCHING PERSON-- IN VERY COLD WEATEHER, I THINK IT ALSO CRITICAL TO GET THE WARM MILK IN THE FOAL;S BELLY TO KEEP THE INNARDS FUNCTIONING WELL-- THAT COULD BE TEH 4 HOURS TIME FRAME... WHO KNOWS.
BOTH MOTHER AND BABY ARE ALIVE THIS MORNING.... IT WAS A CIRCUS LAST NIGHT... OF COURSE... WHEREE WAS TEH GOAT SIZE NIPPLE BOTTLE KEPT? I DUNNO-- I DID NOTICE A BEER BOTTLE WITH NIPPLE LAST TIME- BUT WHO CLEANED UP WHAT AND WHERE IT WENT , I DO NOT KNOW.-- ONLY EMPTY BEER BOTTLES ARE ALLOWED HERE ANYWAY...
AND TEH PURPLE FORK LIFT ARRIVED AND INSPIRED ALL KINDS OF MECHANICAL ACTIVITY- INCLUDING KNOCKING OVER A NEIGHBOR'S SHED... ( ON PURPOSE)-- it was minus teh roof- i thought it was sort of 4 walls and woudl fit int eh dump trailer.. well 1/2 fits... and we will have to go back for another load - if not today. then next tanner day -- we certainly have it flattened... what we did not know was it was full of "AWAY" stuff-- as in throw it "away" first thing today-- a dump run.. actually a "transfer statioon" run
then if steve is still inspired maybe a manure run and pick up top soil and gert seed planted before it is to rain on wednesday..
speaking of wednesday... thursday david said he would be here.... david-- as in these wonderful mitsubisi heaters we now have...
he is going to tasckle the problem of the dogs eating the pipe out of the well- we do have a well-- lotsa water--- down 500 feet-- tastes like it came out of the bottom of a fish market. but it is good for watering the flat field.... and i do like to run it once in a while... so to turn on the water, you flip a breaker in teh cellar... i usually do that in teh very dry august weather..
water consumpotion here is astronomical-- i have watched people scrubb outdoor runs to perfection-- while groaning about the cost of water bill...---fortunately most of the march mud has dried and fallen off teh golf carts... they were looking sad...
our 14,000 donkey tote bags are ready for shipping-- tina in california is our mr moon connection-- she manages that episode-- and tho maybe not 14,000 , even the minimum number we had to aorder is huge.... hopefully janine's donkey group[ will want them too... they will be handy pouches-- maybe replacing the plastic bag ipisode for small items..
GRUMMAN HAD A VERY BUSY WEEK, WE TRAVELED TO FORT SILL OKLAHOMA TO CELEBRATE OUR SON, BENJAMIN'S ARMY BOOT CAMP GRADUATION. THE TRIP ENTAILED A FLIGHT TO DALLAS FROM DCA (NATIONAL AIRPORT) ON SOUTHWEST (ONCE AGAIN, THEY PROVED WHY THEY ARE THE BEST CHOICE WHEN TRAVELING WITH A SERVICE ANIMAL, PARTICULARLY WHEN THEY ARE SUPERSIZED), WE THEN RENTED A MINIVAN FOR A 3 HOUR TRIP TO LAWTON, OKLAHOMA.
THE GRADUATION WAS WONDERFUL! THE CEREMONY WAS STEEPED IN TRADITION AND HONOR, WITH A LITTLE HUMOR THROWN IN SO THE MOOD WOULD BE CELEBRATORY AS WELL AS DIGNIFIED. GRUMMAN PAID HIS DUE RESPECT TO OUR NEWEST SOLDIERS AND THEIR FAMILIES BY WEARING AN APPROPRIATE OUTFIT TO MATCH THE FESTIVE YET SOLEMN OCCASION!
