*ahem* She was preemie by probably 3-4 days and we had to do some extra work to keep her going. Very fine hair, very small, but growing nicely. SnowBelle/Snowy is also stabilizing from the trauma and is doing fine. I was going to send her for meat as she freshened (gave birth) with zero udder. But now, several days later on her actual due date? She has an udder.
Small teats, small udder, but promising. I'll keep her and her daughter. Pics to follow soon!
No new updates on the Standardbred mare, but she's putting on some weight SLOWLY and is looking much much better. Enough better she TROTTED on her own! Woo Hoo!
My WWOOFr's dad is at the farm pruning the fruit trees (YEAH!), I left a humongous chicken in the crockpot for him, there's fresh milk, goat cheese, vegetables, basmati rice and fruits available in the freezers, fridge and shelves. He's a little concerned about not doing the job I want, but it'll be fine. Trees grow back if they're cut too severely (and they needed it!) and we can chip up the limbs for BBQ wood. Apple, pear, peach, plum, cherry. Yum.
Have a wonderful Friday! Off to the "local" smallstock and stuff sale tonite with the WWOOFr's dad. Should be interesting.
