Looks as if the colostrum is over, but I'm still tipping the milk down the drain as she has the mastitis meds. I usually let Larry nurse first, then milk her, but today I milked her first. She has always dropped her milk well for me and the machine. Maybe tomorrow after the morning milk I'll take her back to the pasture, leaving Larry in the barn to entice her back for the evening milking. Then in a day or 2, I'll return them both to pasture and see how he copes this time.
Wow, it's hot and muggy out there. I think I smell like a polecat and sweat like crazy doing even the smallest chore. It rained again last night, but the sun is bright, and there is a brisk wind.
The sheared sheep are taking some getting used to ! They look so funny with their small bodies and huge heads. I have difficulty in correctly identifying them by looks, but can tell them apart by their calls. Herbie is out there cutting around the fields and bringing the fresh cut hay to the sheep and horses. For someone who doesn't like the sheep, he sure is good to them ! But he says it's only because it keeps them quiet. He has a point there. When I went out to give Rosco his dry dog food last night, there was one muffled call, those sheep are in eating heaven.
