Sheila says I don't listen unless it is about one of the animals...

not true...today I listened to two people and got my butt in gear and quit procrastinating about a couple of things.
The first was when this nice lady Ruth came by to pick up some information about SAINTS that she wanted to share at a meeting she was heading off to. She told me that last week her neighbors llama, who they had had for several years went nutz and killed two sheep and tried to kill her neighbor too! She said it was because he was an intact male that he went crazy. I called the vet, he said there is a "bezerke llama syndrome" that can rarely affect intact males...not rare enough...I booked Carl's neuter for the 25th.
The second thing was when I went to the paint store to get some more primer for the inside of the rabbit room (I thought it would save time to get our handy guy to spray the primer for us before we paint the fun colors). It was exterior paint. She said "it is kinda late to be painting outside isn't it?"...is it? I did not know that...anyway, I listened to her and bought some purple paint and painted the outside siding of the rabbit room today, just in case we run out of outside painting time. It looks good.
So there are two things that I listened to someone and got moving on quicker. Unfortunately, now I am behind in the regular stuff here, so i guess I better go clean the barn (in the dark, bleck!)
