Hello Keiko!!
Its been awhile. I've been very busy and its only getting worse- we had our first shot of snow Fri night with up to 5 inches coming for Monday!! I'm not ready! My calves have some VERY "hard" water in their tanks. I'm sure the float valves are froze if the hoses are not. But the ground is stiffening up so I'm sure the hoses froze too. It was very nasty today. The temp was around freezing but there was a cold biting wind out of the NNW- a very raw day indeed. Everyone has adequate straw and shelter, so we're fine there its just the water. Tomorrow I will have to carry hot water to them as today I was able to break the ice, but with frozen hoses I will be "pailing it" to refill them.

Has your son had his big Bday yet?? Did you get him a cow? I still think that was pretty sweet of him, good to know he thinks of others!!

How are the Pacas?? We had I think 5 beef cows calve the last few weeks. We don't do fall calving but my brother left the bull in too long and didn't feed the cows very well over winter, so here we are, fall calving. I've taken over feeding the beefers (like I don't have enough to do) but most of them are mine now anyways. They are quite healthy, Annie is as big as a house, looks like she should be ready to calve out 4-5 bbs but she's not due till spring.

I should get going since I have extra work to do tomorrow before work, but I wanted to pop in and say "Hi"
Catch you later!!
