Gave Dolly hers in the milk stall, must be good stuff, they gobble it up. Think I'll check the sheep tomorrow too, although they're in a different area. Thinking about changing her routine. Keeping her in the barn area overnight, milking in the morning and then letting her back in with the others for the day. But this means that I'll have to re-set my hours to early rising, and I'm not a happy morning person. It will ensure that I get the needed milk each day, have 3 herd-share owners who take 2 gallons, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, with a 1-gallon owner on Tuesdays, and may run into a bit of shortages if I don't get a full 2 gallons from her at each milking. It may also ensure that we get more cream on the milk. Only, I don't want to milk her out completely otherwise Larry will have to wait a little to be fed in the morning, which may not be optimal for him and not milking her completely means that the cream stays behind.
Egg laying is still down. This heat and mugginess is just making the beasties suffer. Vinny and Gloria stopped for eggs today. They don't get out the truck as Rosco feels their fear of him and runs around the truck, barking madly, so they hoot, and I go serve them :) Funny boy. He usually still doesn't listen to me when I tell him no, but today he actually lay down and I petted him while they drove down the hill, he didn't even try and chase them.
Cooked chicken, potatoes and peas for lunch. Put them in the oven before going out to pick of the de-worming meds, and returned to yummy aromas wafting through the house.
Am all caught up with the laundry, the kitchen is sort-of respectable, so I'm feeling rather accomplished.
