The last couple of days have been kind of icky for me. I picked up a bug from the weather change and have had a runny nose and the icky feeling with it. Yay rah, I hate being sick. I'm fighting it tho.
Had to give the cow a round of antibiotics, she's a bit under the weather as well. Wow, was that interesting! It was all the boy and
I could do to keep the gate pressed up against her. We couldn't get all we wanted to do with her done, she's too big for him to hold the gate by himself while I medicate the cow. She worked us over pretty good. I still stabbed her with several needles and even with the gates, that was not an easy task.
I'm a little miffed still from something that happened on Wednesday afternoon here. I feel disrespected by someone I've been helping since last fall. I'm not over it yet and it's kind of festering a bit. This person pulled up in my drive, laid on the horn instead of coming up to the door. I thought there was something wrong so I went out there. Turns out, all they wanted was to ask me to come put hay out, they'd been out of hay for a couple days. never bothered to text me or anything while the weather was nice like this person has done all winter. Hmmm, you show up on the last nice day we're going to have for about a week, lay on the horn like I'm a servant to be summoned and expect me to drive a cabless tractor 10 miles round trip in 38F with freezing rain to put hay out so you don't have to go out in the cold and throw square bales twice a day. Yep, I'm miffed and no, I haven't been to put out hay yet. I will not be treated like some low class servant to be called at the ringing of a bell on a whim.
I spent the day on and off cleaning out the critter barn. I need to get it ready to put hay in. Hay season is coming quick. I've got a round of taters in the dehydrator drying and a loaf of bread almost ready to bake. I did that while I was giving my back a break from the manure. I can still go all day long but my back doesn't think so. I even loved on my seedlings a bit!
