Castration Day

Today the Old Farmer's Almanac said it was a "Best Day" for castrating livestock. I only had one ram lamb to do as the other 3 may have uses as rams in the future. Below I describe who gets castrated and some of the process. Be aware, it's very descriptive, so you've been warned if you read to the end! Amy

A Wee Bit O’ Irish Over the Homestead Monday…

A Rainbow over the home and no pot-o-gold! *sigh* This last week snow visited us again briefly. Enough to close school for the day but not enough to linger past about 1pm. Also, our chickens are on a roll right now and we're overrun! Enjoy! Amy
