06:40, 54F, patchy fog. roosters crowing. pup out. dixie and guardian at back door. lamb bottles heating up.
12:30, sunny. went by feed store on way back from doctor and all the good hay was gone, replaced by the mediocre hay from last month. dammit.
17:20, 78F, sunny. zzzzz... took a 3 hour nap.
19:50, 70F. pup jumped donkey fence into donkey pasture and west woods. 6 deer ran from woods in 5 different direction, followed by a terrifed spotted fawn. found pup in woods, marched her home, and put her in crate.
21:30, 65F, waxing almost-full moon in SE sky. jupiter bright in the west. a few stars.

perhaps a rescued dog? then you don't have to deal with all the puppy crap like I'm doing..
the hay thing is driving me nuts. last year I took up the slack with square bales of oat hay, which worked well. but this year, all the oats are being baled into round rolls.
when there was good hay, I could only get a few bales because of my painful leg. (did go to the dr. and we think the muscle spasms are a side effect from the generic boniva I started. so I'm done with all that and hoping I will get back to normal once the medication leaves my body.)
I could only unload a few bales at a time. now the hay is crap again. I tried mixing the crap hay - dry, not moldy - with the good hay but they weren't fooled. the grass is growing but we need more rain.
turkeys are fun. I had some long ago and really enjoyed them. once they start to feather out, they won't need a light. good luck with them.

Hope we are in hay in three weeks. Been sort of cool.

Got four turkeys. I moved the cage out on the back porch, still got a light on it. Now I'm double guessing racoons & such. It's a blue moon~ I'm wishing I had a dog.
