How about this for re-purposing : sheared the sheep, but their wool was full if burrs. Salle suggested using it as a mulch in the garden, did that with some of it around the grapevines, blueberry bushes, asparagus and fruit trees, but first, I lined the nesting boxes in the chicken house ! The only problem is that poultry are totally disgusting, they poop everywhere. I read that they don't mess their nests - bull, there is so much poop in their nesting boxes I could fertilise a good sized garden many times over, repeatedly !
The girl calves have found they can't escape anymore. Put bedding down for them, and for the sheep, expect cold weather in about 3 days.
Had some response after posting the puppies on Craigs List before the posts were flagged, twice from both Grand Rapids and Lansing. Nothing fixed, but enquiries, so hold thumbs.
Well, I'm showered, and my hair is nearly completely dry, Anni doesn't want to go outside, Mischka is lying next to, on me, and it's time for bed. I have such interrupted sleep, and there is so much to do tomorrow.
Thank you to those who comment on my postings - sometimes I think I feel like I'm talking to myself.
