Just a day at the farm ...

Here ... if you wonder what a day at the farm looks like ...

The other day, for the first time ever, I did load a hog into a trailer all by myself …

It does not sound like much but actually it is really hard to do … In the past I always did it with one if not two helpers … It involves many moving parts: from trailer to uncooperating hog … For a first time it was slightly epic but I considered it a good step toward complete self sustainability and I was all happy about it.

I got a busy rest of the day, gorgeous first day of Spring, and then THIS happen ...

broken pipe

… don’t even ask how !!! … I do have a subsidiary of #homedepot plumbing department here just NOTHING to cap THIS … Stupid installation was done so close to the wall I could not even get in with the tool to cut the pipe … The mud of course and by then it was 6pm something … I had just one thought : I need a shower so I better fix This shit …

As I was dealing with all this mess Miss Praline was baaing on top of her lung, I was not paying much attention, first she does it all the time (yes very annoying), second I was kinda busy, I called on her a couple of time but she would not stop. She was a few yards from me so not like she did not know where I was … The baa keep on going to a point I walked toward her telling her I was going to beat the crap out of her if she was not going to stop immediately ….

And that is when I noticed one of the duck trapped in the cross fence !! the fence is big squares and the ducks are going through it, back and forth, 100 times a day … somehow this little duck got a flipper in one square backward, a wing in another one, body twisted … nothing major and I got her out in no time but has she spent the night there it would have been a whole other story and without Praline there is no way I would have noticed her, it was getting dark and she was all quiet and scared …

Dear Praline … Just another day at the farm …
