One day without rain! We cleaned out barn and reapplied lime to build a pen for weaning.
Dan pulled out the big guns to clean some mud out of our way. I’m so tired of all this mud. Tomorrow we weigh and separate lambs.

Had a near disaster last night. Went down to barns to check lambs. Looked over to birthing barn and I thought I was looking at a dead ewe! Went down to see and she was laying in mud not moving. Her eye opened and I was trying to get her to her belly. Dan drove me to the house and I got the banamine and Zactran. Gave her banamine and dan went to get tractor so we could move her, I gave her Zactran. We rolled her into bucket and all of a sudden her head came up, she probably thought we were going to bury her lol, put her in birthing barn where I just grabbed a handful of soda a shoved in her mouth. We left and came back home. Well this morning she was out with other ewes. Thank God, I only have 4 feeders with soda in them. She is still muddy.

We are taking down jugs and cleaning barn to put in the pens for weaning.

Well since tractor would not start Linda Lunsford let us use hers. The ewes were locked in the lot they eat their corn in for a lot longer than usual. We had to spread hay along upper road because of flooding. They were so happy to get out!

One of our two holding pens. Baby watch has officially started and at my age I was not going to chase through the mud. They get to go outside all day but with 42 first timers I want to keep an eye on them at night.

Well when the storm knocked the trees down, one fell into the teasers lot. Thank God it did not hit them. Another storm is here and they are predicting 40 mile hour winds. A tree uprooted and is leaning on top of another tree, if it comes down it would hit the pen again so we moved teasers to new lot.
