When morning chores were completed,all beds (stall and home) made, hay fluffed and little sheep and goat poo balls chased and captured, as always, thoughts turned to more interesting projects…after mandatory coffee break!
Quatre set to work in her hole, Greg’s calculations weren’t quite where they should have been and a slight adjustment was required before a cement vault could be built. When I was a girl, Popeye was the ultimate muscle man….I’m not sure who today’s icon is but at this rate, Quatre’s abbs are going to be comparable!
WOOFer Intern Ursula got to work in the farm kitchen, that kitchen is sparkling, the cupboards are glowing with new paint, the floor is swept clean and the barn sink shining. After quietly organizing us all, everything put in the right place and perfection as near as possible off she went to organize the vegetable garden where she spent hours pulling nasty weeds that were clearly growing where they shouldn’t be. Long after Ursula has left us we will recall her as the quiet unassuming organizer who put everything in order and if it moved.. or if it didn’t it was sparkling clean!!! Even Lamb Chops butt !!
While Ursula did her thing at the barn, I wandered like a lost sheep between her and the growing creek in the pasture. It wasn’t hard to find the missing ranch hands, the big John Deere tractor was growling in Cow Lane as the two worked on constructing a culvert. When the project is completed we will have completed another “Must Do” that has been in Greg’s book so long the ink has faded . Thanks again Quatre, we really do appreciate BOTH our unpaid ranch hands!
Quick update,Danielle has been eating but her physical condition is causing us enough concern to consider putting her out of her misery.We keep wavering as hope springs eternal but clearly it would be kindness.
One of the two “rescue “ lambs didn’t survive and the other, whilst showing signs of recovery, is clearly suffering both from trauma and the lacerations on her body. We are working with her and again whilst there is life, there is hope.
Time to go, it’s gone 7.30am. Take care, keep safe, M
