Big difference from yesterday... and it actually fell to 83.
We were told originally today would be hotter... but it did not happen, and for that, we are grateful.
Keith, however, was very dehydrated. He ran a fever all day and has only gotten up an hour ago. He thinks he became over heated and dehydrated yesterday, and did not realize it.
The bottles and gallon jugs are all back in the freezer for the next hot day.
Alabama Surprise (Sunrise????) is now blooming. Is it gorgeous or WHAT?
I'll have to move it this fall, or move most of the gigantic yarrow.
The zinnias are blooming mightily.
Any goat people reading this: I have a question.
These two guys are eating chicken feed. They don't necessarily eat much goat feed.
I got Purina Goat Chow... and it turns out it looks and smells JUST like the all-stock feed from our local mill, Valley Feeds in Bonner Springs, Kansas. They are only picking at it.
They LOVE desicated dry leaves.
Whenever they come in the chicken yard with me, they go straight to the feed bowl, and they ARE eating it.
Are we in trouble here with this? They don't chomp for an hour, but they do stop and have a few mouthfuls.
I'm still not having much luck getting them to eat hay.
Donnie is a very handsome boy!
You can see in this picture that Rambo has lost all his tail feathers now.
He was last rooster out of the henhouse the last two mornings, but there ARE hens that are following him daily. It seems that Buddy, the bantam, is really in charge now, though. I suspect Donald has divested Rambo of his feathers, though.
Lilly patrols the pasture for me early in the morning. I let her go down and check everything out before I turn birds or goats loose. Next year, I'll cut everything so we don't have places for critters to hide in the high grass.
Someone (who is a pugapillar) was so glad to be able to sleep with Daddy today while he was home in bed. She was in her element!
If I have not been around to visit your blog in a few days, I'll try to get caught up tonight.
I have Jax and Paiton tomorrow, so I am battening down the hatches and going to try to get plenty of sleep, because I have trouble keeping up with them!
We are going to try to go to a famous local farmstead here, where they can ride ponies, etc.etc.... I'll be sure to take plenty of pictures!
