Don’t count your chickens

We had given up on our three oldest hens for egg production- thus the reason for the new flock of birds – however we have noticed that they have been congregating on my friend’s trailer stoop – making and awful racket, and disappearing under the trailer. So we pulled back the hay bales … a dozen eggs! I wouldn’t mind more chicks.(wink)

Had an adventure yesterday – thus the reason for not posting last night.

It all started while watching my horses basking in the sun – Mousse, our big paint mare was done warming her belly and decided to roll over to get her backside. Unfortunately she was to close to the fence and got her big feet and legs stuck. The rest of my horses plus the neighbors horses all rush to her side. At first they looked concerned but then they began to pick at her almost as if they were teasing- haha you got yourself stuck.

So out I trudged past the mud to her rescue in an attempt to set her free from her hecklers and shackles. I was able to chase away the peanut gallery but could not free her by myself so called for backup. So now there are to invalids try to move a one ton horse. After some fence cutting, leg wrangling and heavy rolling me and Kar were out of commission for the rest of the day!

Thanks to manyofus1980 comment – “ahahahahahaha! maybe a leprachaun lives in your mind! x” – I had to share my reply with all of you.

I know there is one that likes to show up and take things from me and not return them for weeks , months, sometimes years. Things always disappear/reappeared on the 18th or 28th of the month. I think it’s because my granny found seven four leaf clovers for my birth – I still have them today, pressed and saved. I’m a lucky person for the most part so I guess he has to show up and make mischief to even things out. lol

We’ve got …

After many month of store bought eggs I discovered that one of our silver-laced birds has started laying. This would also explain Carmine’s interest in the youngsters suddenly. She is quite the prissy one – she had to watch and make sure I made her nest right and even then she still complained. Maybe it was because I was too slow and everyone wanted to see the new quarters so she had to lay her egg on the hard floor. Oops Anyhow- we now have 1 good egg and two cracked ones.
