Grabbed a 70 lb. tortoise Saturday, this guy is cool as dickens.



He comes over and says 'Hi' everytime I go out in the yard (actually, he says isssssssssssss 'cause he got no vocal cords).

Also, Dan the Goat tried to jump his pen fence and got his rear leg hooked up on the way over. Spouse saw him hanging head down and rassled me up into running out there. Oh my dogs it looked so bad, I thought his rear right leg was broken all to shit and dickens the way it was bent over the top rail. I got him down and got on the horn with the vet. After checking the bone from the hip to the hoof I couldn't find a displacement for a fracture. GOOD NEWS. I found a 4H friend with some banamine (pain and inflammation med) and gave him two shots yesterday and another this morning. He's wobbling around on his leg and putting a little weight on it, so it hurts but is salvagable. Stupid goats, guess I'll be raising the fence panels a foot or so soon.

This is Iggy the show steer. In this time next year I'm going to eat him. Or at least make a start on it, might take awhile.

I have a few animal things

the roommate who has a dog is moving out and wants me to come with. That would be fun, debating whether I can justify the moving expenses and probably slightly more rent for a 2-bedroom vs a 1 bedroom. Also, if things are going well with the GF in a year or so, maybe we should get a place together? So should I just hang tight here for a year and save money? Or maybe the additional ~$100 a month is worth it just for the reduced stress of fewer roommates, slightly more room, etc.

- I am gonna feel a little guilty finding somebody to take my place in this apartment, on account of the rats. I've never seen any, they're definitely not getting into the apartment, but I hear them in the walls and ceiling constantly. Ugh.

- the GF is definitely 100% farm girl. She has casually mentioned that she believes if you get a dog you need at least three (one gets lonely, two means one dog is boss, three is a pack), little dogs are boring, and big dogs Need To Have Jobs. As long as you need jobs for the dogs you want, you can have a little herd of something.... sheep are really fun my gramma taught me to shear em and make yarn out of the wool. Goats are cute and they'll keep your yard neat. Chickens are funny to watch, plus fresh eggs. Oh by the way have I mentioned a cat or two to keep away pests and gosh rabbits are not much work...
She grew up in the NYC suburbs with lawyer parents but I guess the Minnesota and West Virginia roots stick around a generation, somehow.

I thought this girlfriend sounded like a catch, but the small dog prejudice is a dealbreaker. I am very disappointed.

As for the apartment question isn't the $100 worth it for the lack of rats??

Waiting to see how long it takes for that photo to start flying around the internet labelled as an example of heartwarming interspecies friendship when it's really buttwarming interspecies appreciation of a heat lamp.

Getting Oakie cleaned up after the ride, Rocky came over and wanted to play. He gets a little bigger and I'll ride his ass around the yard, for sure.

Poor Shep. I checked and he can be shown at the next fair as a market lamb, so we went about preparing him. Friday we disbudded him (google disbudding tool for a horror show), gave him his CD & T shot and put a band around his nuts.

Here's a shot of him after doctoring him up:


The spray is Aluma-seal, it keeps things clean while they heal.

The poor guy is showing his sheep like instincts, he comes out to eat and then, because he doesn't feel well, he curls up and hides. Hopefully he'll perk back up after a couple of more days on the mend. Oh yeah, we also took his bottle away and he is weaned onto all solid food.

The little guy's week has suuuuuucked.

Oh, and we picked up Agent Number 02, the new show goat for next fair. He is a meaty little bastard that should make weight and show really well.

Here he is in the pen with Dan and Neo:



Neo, the black faced Boer, is getting listed for private sale this week. Someone's gonna want him for fooding.

In text conversation with a possible buyer for Neo the goat I got to use a line I always wanted to. When the guy was dickering price I responded to his first offer with "for that price i'll eat him myself."

Turns out it horrified the guy. When we agreed on price and he came to pick up, Spouse asked what he wanted the goat for. They had a just weaned bottle baby goat who was alone and really noisy sad from being lonely, being out with the chickens wasnt enough.

So Neo hit the jackpot, he gets to be a friend, not food.

Here's my last picture of Neo, with his buddy (and the next fair show goat) Agent #2 next to him.
