I'm going to head out for a few days of quiet.... (yes, the farm can be noisey :) ).
It's that time of the year when the spring born coyote pups are learning how to hunt, and they think my hens are easy prey.
The skunks seem to have plans to winter-over in my outbuildings. The dogs are leary of them and the skunks don't seem to scare off very easily.
With the pastures bare from the drought, cattle (not mine) have been showing up in my yard for a bite to eat at night. I don't blame them.
Ranchers have permission to bale the grass in road side ditches now. It's hard to find a ditch that hasn't already been mowed by the county or that has any grass to begin with.
I think I have taken care of the skunk problem...
I'll keep the hens penned while I'm gone. (Neighbors will be feeding animals for me)
and if the cattle show up to eat grass in my yard.. I won't have to mow. :)
Not really sure where I'm going yet, there is still a burn ban going on here so no outdoor campfires.
Just being out there with a loaf of bread and a package of bologna sounds good to me right now. :)
Hope everyone has a nice weekend!
