Wow, yesterday and today the wind has been howling. Temps in the 40’s or – actually mid-fifties right now, which is good because this is the day D&L decided to top off their haybarn. I just got back, covered with hay and feeling like it’s January again. Hay day needs to be still, not 40 mph. You know?
Laddie has been insisting on tagging along more often lately, so he came and got his ears scratched by the strangers. He’s great around people, not so much around dogs. Fortunately Butch and Zip were inside today or he’d have threatened them with bodily harm, and ol’ potato-bod has nothing but attitude to back that up with.
I’ve been bringing their hay sweepings home with me the past few times – it works better than straw for nesting material, and while it lasts the hens break fewer eggs.
