This is Diana. We got her a couple weeks ago, but weren't sure she was going to make it. Her mama had abandoned her out in the field, so she was cold and hungry when she was found. The rancher didn't have time or inclination to bottle feed her, so Heather took her to Lisa.
This is Scotty or maybe Rocky. His name is not fully settled yet. He belonged to one of the vets from the clinic who could no longer bottle raise him due to surgery. So we bought him and put him in with Diana. Cows do better with companions.
Even though Diana is several weeks older than Scotty, the two are just about the same size. Her fur is also a little sun bleached. Both calves are black angus. Lisa is doing a good job with these two.
The rain we got this past Thursday washed the walkway out again. I had ALMOST finished filling it in from the last time it washed out.
It took the truck to work today and got another 9 buckets full of fill. It got pretty close to where it was before. I still need a couple more and then we'll concrete it in next weekend. That should keep it from washing out any more.
I got back from my trip to Allen's in New Hampshire Wednesday night. This was our progress at the end of our work session Wednesday. The sub-floor is assembled, the front and back walls are assembled, and the long walls are each 16 ft long, but need another 8 ft. added to be complete. We couldn't attach anything to the frame because they still haven't issued him a building permit, so we were " pre-assembling" everything we could. Allen has a lot more detail and more pictures on his blog.
Heather and I took the boat up to Cave Run Lake this morning. It was WAY busier than I thought it would be, with a lot of out of state boats out on the lake.
We had warm and windy conditions today, with the water warmer than I had figured at 72. I was thinking upper 60's. It was still a nice day to be out. Willow went with us, too.
Here we have a spot for a "roadrunner tunnel" with a couple of channel marker bouys that broke loose and drifted over to the the rock face that makes up the shoreline in that spot. I wonder if it would work...
I was born in the northwest, but grew up in Florida. I made the Adirondack Mountains of New York my home back in the early 80's where my kids were born and grew up. I relocated to Kentucky in the fall of '09.
