So off to the grocery store to buy food. When I returned, the alarm had gone off again. Upon some investigating it was discovered that one of the donkeys had broke the water line next to the stalls. And the front pasture was, well, wet. So, that is where all the water was going!
Thank goodness a shut off valve was installed by the stalls to turn off the water there. Now that meant the horses and donkeys cannot go into the stalls at night since there is no water now. Okay, so everyone is now in both front and back pastures for awhile. Thank goodness the repairing of the pipe is easy.
As I mentioned before, summer is quickly arriving as you can see by the looks of the back pasture. The green is very sparse. The brown has taken over. And there is no irrigation here. Fire season will be in effect July 1st. Another reason I do not like summer. Too hot and wildfires.

A somewhat of a closeup of the red puffy ball things on the tree.
Now that the temps are rising it is time to get out the small fan for the chicken house and clean it up. Today it is suppose to get mid 80's. Tomorrow low to mid 90's. Yuk!!! I know, some of you think that our temps aren't hot, but anything above 72 degrees is too hot for me. Ha Ha As for the outside chores, well, I make sure they are done early in the morning.
Until next time............................

But, as a few years went by a more darker presence came around. I tried to get rid of it, but nothing seemed to work. Then one day I came home from work, it was still light out, my daughters were at a friends house, so no one was in the house except for my dog. As I walked inside from the back part of the house down the hallway I stopped halfway because there was a small shadow figure standing there staring at me from the living room area ( you could see from the hallway to the living room). The next thing I knew that shadow figure zipped to the left towards the other end of the living room. Thinking someone was in the house I took off after it, but there was no one. And my dog was visibly frightened under the kitchen table. He was never frightened with the old lady spirit. He would follow her around as if she belonged to this world.
Well, that was the end of that. My kids, dog and myself moved out that weekend. Put the place on the market and that was that. That old house has since been torn down. I have no idea who or what that shadow figure was.
That is just one of the many incidences I have had.
I know, a lot of people do not believe in the spirit world. So, I apologize to the readers who are offended by this post and hope not to lose you as followers.
This was taken yesterday afternoon. After the craziness of the animals here this is what I wanted to do to. Honey Dog was sound asleep.

Right after I fed the goats their grain, they started running after me looking for their breakfast, forgetting that I had just fed them and the grain was still in the same place I had just put it. So had to walk back and show them where their breakfast was.
There are three donkeys who get stalled every night. And every morning they get turned out. This morning even they weren't immune to whatever is in the air. I opened the stall gates and they just couldn't figure out how to come out.
And then Honey Dog all of a sudden had hearing loss when I whistled for her. She always goes with me when I am outside and if I don't see her, I give a quick whistle and she comes running. Well not today. I had to go looking for her and found her inside the chicken house eating chicken poo!

Well, today they brought the kids! My goodness how they have grown.
And this morning my youngest daughter informs me that there is a rabbit in the front pasture. Really? A rabbit? Yup, sure enough there was a rabbit by the horse stalls.
I have not a clue where the bunny came from but if he/she is going to hang around, well, I guess I'll have to make sure there is food available.

Chickens fed and watered. Honey Dog always accompanies on the morning feedings.
We need to go get the older chickens away from the neighbors fence and shoo them back towards the barn. It amazes me how quickly they can get across the property when they want to.
Pics are a bit out of line. We have already started feeding and are out in the back pasture. Goats have to get their grain.
Everyone now has their breakfast. Time to go back into the house and feed the inside cats and get another cup of coffee.
Until next time........................

She started to walk inside the chicken house but some of the hens were in there and by their squawking I don't think they wanted a visitor in there.
Since the weather has started to get warmer, the flies are beginning to emerge. So the sticky fly paper went up.
I finally convinced Doughnut that being in there was not an option. Out she went.
But she had to take a souvenir with her. She got some of the fly paper stuck in her forelock and ear. After a few tries to remove the sticky fly paper, she was paper free although some of her forelock came with it.

However the other side of her is downright filthy! She rolled in who knows what! Ugh!!! Well, she is off the hook getting a bath until the temps warm up just a bit more.

As long as I can remember there is something that never, ever goes on any table.
