Fertilizing the Pasture

Tonight another rain decided to come our way, so still no tractors in the field. However, we took advantage of the rain and put fertilizer on the pasture. Let’s just hope the sun starts to shine soon so we can get seeds in the ground!

Baby Jean

This little, spotted cutie arrived on 4-20, and I was so very excited to finally have a calf with some personality in her markings. However, what we didn’t know was that she would immediately become a magic escape artist, finding every way possible to escape and go find a place to lay down on the pasture lane. Hog paneling finally kept her contained and she gained the name, Jeannie (AKA: Baby Jean). Inspired by “I Dream of¬†Jeannie” – because for a while it seemed she magically appeared and disappeared to wherever she wanted to go. At least her Mom was bellering loud enough¬†to notify us of her mischevious behavior, so we could find her and return her to the patch.

Is this not the same face Simba makes in “The Lion King” when his Mom is cleaning him up? This little one is chock full of personality.

 

Spring Cleaning

What do farmer’s do when they’re not planting or harvesting? Well, there’s a variety of things and one of those is cleanup. It seems like there’s always a never ending list of overgrown trees to clean up, fence to fix, old buildings to take out and CRP to burn. Since this year hasn’t been ideal for planting yet, things are getting done!

Cleaning up trees in the South Pasture.

I am SO excited to see this old chicken coop go – it was beyond repair. Building #5 down … and several more to go.
