Took the buggy and drove around the pastures today, down the trail through the woods, around the sheep enclosure, checking the electric fencing, looking for eggs, noting newly fallen trees. Checked the bee hives. Seemingly have 4 active hives. The smaller Top-bar hive is rather active, bees buzzed out and one followed me. I thought it was gone, but it had landed on my back, crawled down my sweatshirt and under the bottom edge and stung me in the small of my back when I was squatting at the blueberry bushes a short time later ! March and I've experienced my first sting - does this bode well for the harvesting season ??
Dolly still has a hard lump the back quarter of her udder, I massaged it again during milking to try and loosen it and if it is not much better tomorrow morning, think I'll have to re-medicate that quarter. I'd rather get it completely better than risk losing it. Makes milking more of a schlep as I have to milk 3 quarters, decant this good milk for herd-share owners / ourselves, re-milk all 4 teats and this milk goes to the cats bowl, and then hand milk that back quarter (directly into the cats bowl) as for some strange reason she doesn't let-down for the milking machine, which is why she got the mastitis to start with. Silly girl.
Herbie called earlier this evening, his truck broke down in Cadillac, so he was waiting for his company to do whatever to get it fixed. On a Sunday night, doesn't sound like it'd be anytime soon.
This time change surely messes with me. Had to get up early as a guy wanted to buy the Net10 card I had posted on CL, so I'm tuckered out now, methinks it's off to bed for me.
