A hunting we will go, a hunting we will go......

Hi, ho, the dairy-0, A hunting we will go.

Well, not really. We don't hunt, but we dress up when we go walking this week. In Wisconsin it is the only safe thing to do. With a little help from Jake's old highway department vest and a "dog safety outfit" from Farm & Fleet and a little sewing ingenuity, Scooter has a hunting suit. Luckily he doesn't object.

In the picture, you can see the cows out in their newest pasture. It is really just a smallish area where Jake plans to put out the hay that he feeds them in the winter. It is off to one side at the back of the barn where the hay is stored and should be an easy trip for the bobcat. A new gate and a new place to feed the cows should make feeding much easier this winter.

VERY cool! Good for you for getting out for walks! I haven't gotten any 'exercise' in months! (maybe that should be YEARS! ...Perhaps that could be why I am getting so fat???

Happy Thanksgiving!

I finally made it through all your archives and feel more up to speed on what you talk about. Wish I could see a comprehensive "before and after" on your house remodel, because it sure sounds ambitious! I take it the two white ewes didn't take on the ram exposure they had before coming to your place last fall. My understanding is that Oct. 15 is fairly early in the season. Since I haven't actually seen any breeding activity in my little group, my lambing season next spring will all be guesswork!
