I am sending my thoughts and wishes to all those families who have been affected by the bushfires happening in many places in both Victoria and New South Wales. Too many lives have been lost already, such a huge tragedy for all. I wish I could do something to help ease the pain. Love and light to you all at this tragic time.
Thank you to all the wonderful people who have left comments.
Your comments spur me on and make me want to write more, to share more with you all. I am so sorry that some of you are going through what we have been through. I am going to write some more soon, to share with you just how we are going and how we are coping. Hopefully it will help you all to see that life does go on and it goes on well in our case and for that we are forever grateful.
Salty Cow – May 2004
Today being Mother’s day I got to help out around the farm.
First off, just for a change we had to feed the sheep. Today it was oats so it took almost 5 hours.
In between we did other jobs, including preparing the Veggie patch…it now has onions and spinach in it.
We also fed the two steers, first though we had to roll the oats for them. This entailed setting up two Augers, a tractor, the mobile feed bin which was filled with oats…and of course the grain roller.
After crushing the oats we finally fed the hungry buggers (we crushed enough to last a few weeks), my husband gave them three large buckets full then we started to put some hay into their pen as well.
Whilst doing this I noticed one of the steers has like a stick thing hanging off of his hairy bit where his ‘manhood’ is. I tried to work out what it was..thinking some how he had got a stick stuck on it !!!!
I couldn’t get a good enough look so I asked my husband if he could see what it was.
Husband said “Oh that…well that’s a bit of hair that is salty”.
I started laughing…………the thing I want to know is……..
How the hell does he know it’s salty?
