So we need a vacation. The weather has improved making us think that summer will actually arrive at some point. And we have had a tough lambing season, and it is ongoing. Today I noticed that Moll has mastitis. I have never had to deal with mastitis before. So she is on multiple medications, and frequent udder massage and milking. I think I have been spoiled by having Shetland sheep because I have never had all of these lambing problems before. I think I will go back to the Shetlands. Here’s Moll after treatment:
So I am thinking of warm trips this summer. I am not a fulltime farmer but Tom is now. We worked on the camper van that I inherited from my grandfather. I cleaned the inside including washing all the dishes. Tom cleaned the outside and washed the linens. Tomorrow she (we call her Bluesy the Floosy) will get an oil change. Then we will stock her with food, supplies and bedding, and she will be ready to go. We need a vacation!
