only one gate not properly latched and it was open with an animal in the wrong place, and i am not telling you which one so everyone here can be worried.
maggie knows cuz she was with me... but don't ask her cuz i know she will not say....i want to instill a total and universal gate/door obsession/paranoia when i am not here....it is the ONLY way to keep everyone safe.
i noticed today that when folks wanted to talk to me they stayed about 10 feet away and looked at me closely and first asked if i was ok.
you are all afraid of me now aren't you?
too funny..i am not going to bite you, i just might take a quick swat.
charottes abcess burst today..mo cleaned it up but she said it was so gross, she gagged thru the cleaning. i cleaned it again tonight and gently expressed out quite a bit more. i left a clean rag and bucket by the gate cuz it will need to be cleaned again tomorrow. if the barn folks are really super nice to me..maybe i will do it before i leave for work!
i was kind of hoping to sleep in a bit tomorrow cuz i am switching to afternoons but sadly i am going to have to hit the building store by 8 am so i can have the materials here for trent to erect a birth barrier between teddy and grace. her milk has come in so i think the birth will be any day now...i hope instinct will guide her cuz i haven't any experience with the birth process of pigs. if it is the same as cats dogs and people, we might be ok.
ok...just so folks are not shaking in their boots if they have to talk to me tomorrow..i am actually in a pretty good mood right now..as long as no one yanks on my chain.
