Here it is, I hope this works...

I was bringing the calf to the barn at chores last evening, and he was around the outside of the pen that adjoins the barn. I had to make a big loop out through the trees to get around behind him, and then just walked along with him in front of me, along the outside of the pen toward the barn door. He's about four months old now, so he's at that age where he thinks he's all grown up and doesn't need me or his mom doting on him all the time, and sometimes getting him to come in at night is a bit of a struggle.

Anyway, in the corral area out in front of the pen and barn, there's a big patch of velvet leaf weed. I don't know if you have that there, but it got out of control here this summer because of all the rain we got, and it's like 6 to 7 feet tall now. Like walking through a small forest! Anyway, Oliver (the calf) headed into that mess and stumbled into a hen with her five little chicks, who were foraging for seeds that had dropped.

The chicks all screamed and ran (you know chicks!) and momma, instead of running with the chicks, flew right up into Oliver's face and tried to beat him with her wings! OMG, the look on his face - he was so surprised! He hadn't even seen them until she attacked! LOL! She scared the liver out of him, and he bolted for the barn, but she wasn't done with him, she CHASED him all the way to the gate into the barn! He was kicking out behind him as he ran, poor thing, with that evil monster chicken chasing him!

He shot straight into his stall with no fuss, and I had to thank that hen for helping me "round him up" last night! LOL! He seemed happy to be in his stall, where there were no vicious attack chickens. I ran in and shut the stall door behind him, and presto! Calf chores were done! LOL!

My mother used to wonder why we worked so hard to keep our little farm going, and chastised me all the time for having so many animals and having to work so hard, but it's times like those (last night) that make it all worth the effort. I hadn't laughed so hard in a long time, and it felt good.

So what a great day .............ah....I feel good now ! For real!
So is Meadowcat gonna make us some chicken jammies ? I think she should.....
No chicken jammies for my chickens! That's too much work. My Mom sent me a picture of chickens with tutus on. Texted her back and told her that is too much work. She texted back, "But they are so cute". I am too cheap to buy chickens tutus. She can make me some chicken leggings, though. Can't have enough of those!

I am glad you feel comfortable enough to share with us "not quite right, peeps".

This thread wouldn't exist if it weren't for all of you!

It's a Netflix series about a rancher.

Sam Elliot, Debra Winger are Mom and Dad. Grown kids at home, Ashton Kutcher and Danny Masterson are the sons. You got to get past the first episode. The entire series is not right!

He sold off this small parcel to a relative many moons ago, and then they sold it to us. It's definitely quiet out here, except when the motorcycles go roaring by on their way to Sturgis every summer.

We have well water, too (well, OBVIOUSLY...), but ours is softer. It took me a long time to get used to it - it tasted like there was baking soda in it, ick. But now it tastes normal to me and it doesn't leave spots and chunks all over everything, which is nice. When we lived in Central Oregon, we had the best tasting water, but it was hard.



Me, too, on the hay thing. We're lucky to have the best hay guy in the world (and I've been buying hay here and back in Oregon for over 40 years now, so I have some experience), but he charges for his high quality. I don't mind, though because it's guaranteed. If I find ONE flake in one of the large squares that has the least bit of musty or moldy smell to it, he'll replace the entire bale. Same if I find a weed. But unless it's like a third or more of a bale that's "contaminated," I won't tell him. I don't think it's fair for him to bring another 800 pounds of hay just for one or two bad flakes. Our water, and our hay guy, are the main reasons we stay here. And the expense. And we're too old to move... I guess there's a lot of reasons we don't get the hell out of here. It IS beautiful here.



I be a gurl. Feisty redhead to be exact. Born and raised in Portland, Oregon but left in 1995 to go to Redmond (OR) so I could dry out a little bit. Too much rain for my likes in Portland, and I was SO much happier in Redmond. We'd still be there (me and the hubs) except for the influx of out of staters that drove the prices up so high so fast. And just the whole attitude in general. We were living out of time. Out here, it's just like Oregon used to be back in the 60s.

And of course there's the whole farm thing. I was a "professional" back in Portland (office manager type), and did the whole dress/nylons/high heels thing every day. Now I don't own a dress or nylons, and although I kept a couple pair of cute high-heeled boots, I never wear them. Now I have milk cows and chickens and dogs and cats and nobody cares what I wear. I love my cows, absolutely LOVE them. I had horses most of my life, and we still have the last one out in the pasture eating hay and tearassing around the place when he thinks he heard something (he's an Arab gelding, gorgeous boy), but he's not saddle broke and I don't have the time or the round pen to work with him, so he's just decoration. He still takes my breath away when he dances...

Oh, and I'm an old fart, sorta. I'm going to be 62 in December, and Rich, my husband will be <GASP> 71 in February. He doesn't do much around here anymore, which is why I don't have a lot of time on the computer. I'm doing most everything now.

I did have time to look at those fall fashions for chickens, though. OMG. So funny. I can tell you, though, that chickens don't NEED sweaters, people need to make them and then play dress-up with the chickens. LOL! Some of our chickens go through a South Dakota winter with no feathers on their backs (we have too many roosters) and they're fine. I do think I need a little bonnet for our house chicken, though. Her name is Chicklet, how original, eh? We found her abandoned one evening about 4 years ago now, and couldn't find her mama, so we brought her in the house so she wouldn't die. And she stayed. Now she has a cage in the living room, near the window, and I take care of her as if she was a parrot, but she's quieter than a parrot. And she laid an egg every day for me for a couple years, but she's getting old now, too, so no more eggs. She just eats and poops, but she's very friendly and personable. And don't think it's just dogs and cats that beg while you're eating dinner. She could give LESSONS in begging, LOL! It's a good thing she's in her cage, because otherwise I'm sure she'd fly right up into my plate while I'm eating.

So there, that's me.
Wow! Thanks for the intro, Lannie! My old horse is Arab, as well. Flea bit grey, dropped back and just a pasture ornament. If I were to put a saddle on him right now, it would still be a scary ride. He still lopes up to see what's going on around here, when we are out doing things. He's still got plenty of get up and go, teeth and feet! It was never a relaxing ride with him. He's got all kinds of tricks to catch you off guard.

Glad to meet you Lannie!

See what you did Lannie!

You woke the beast, Mel/Ma!

You just undid all the hard work I've been doing to try to convince her that chickens are NOT evil.

Ma! That hen was doing everything she could think of to protect her babies! How is that evil? Plus, she helped Lannie get Oliver in the barn. I think you have a problem and need to go the fear of chicken rehab.

I don't know if that means you "do" Netflix or not, you might want to give it a try. I am running on my 30 day free trial and it has grown on me. My plan is to binge watch The Ranch before I cancel the free trial. I am sure I will find something else to keep me from cancelling.

Lannie,

In case you haven't caught up, I'm cheap. I have an antenna on top of my house to catch local channels, which only works on certain TV's in certain rooms, when the weather is doing just the right thing. All the more reason to watch the Ranch!

Sam Elliot is a crusty old ba$tard in it!

OK!

I screwed up!

But, Ma has this unrealistic fear of chickens. So, what was I supposed to say?

I will tell you all My ghost story.

I am being targeted for doing the right thing and whistle blowing. I am going to try to ride it out, but looking for other jobs.

Duh, duh, duh.

Hi Ken, sorry I missed your call...yesterday.

Been run off my feet, last few weeks / installing steel siding, on garage shop.
- figured out, all the whole order & helping carpenter
- and back at Andrew's on weekend...pressure washing & sanding cedar deck...for sealer

Hi Chicken Hawk gang...my blessings are with 4x4, you can do it come October.
- Larry hasn't touched a drop, in over 5 years now...cold turkey, with the right attitude
- well worth it...when old Amy died, it hit me hard like loosing a flesh & blood daughter and I was trying to ease the constant heart-ake pain
- spirits isn't the answer, I Pray for you man // with Love Bro

PS - I believe with addiction & very high IQ people, pose some specific differences in rehab...compared to the average Joe (something to evaluate deeper).
- ever want to Chat, Larry cell # is 1-519-317-8555

I hope the new job is less of a drive.



I'm not afraid of chickens; I just think they have a sort of.....velociraptor-y...look about them.



Well, not really. LOL


But they do have more than their share of cold hearted lizard in their stares.



A chicken's true self

My chickens and Lannie's chickens look nothing like that.

Right Lannie?

I'd love to live Green Acres, but that's just a wishful fantasy. THEY got to go to town once in a while and have time off. However, our house is pretty much like theirs was - everything is broken. Gah. And my cows are prettier. Mine have stripes. One of these days, I either need to move all my pictures to this laptop I'm using, or go down to the dungeon (basement) and post from my PC so I can show you guys some of my critters.

I realized this morning after I posted that I STILL forgot to post that funny chicken story Ken was referring to, so I'll do it now. I'm just going to copy and paste what I wrote to him because

I'm making cheese today and don't have time to re-type the whole thing. I'll go find it and post it right now.

Your “making cheese” ................in the middle of a work day !
Now that’s multitasking !!!!
You go girl !!!! Ba ha ha ha ha .........

your welcome.

Oh....each day at my office by 7AM.....we are greeted with: "Things to be happy about" here it goes.....

Things to be happy about
• give "red-carpet" welcomes
• appreciate new forms of music
• tell someone how you feel and listen to their suggestions, then calmly decide what to do
• identify less with the changing physical shell and more with your spirit
• champion local industries
• let go of what cannot be changed
• be peaceful
• find joy in whatever needs to be done

So there you have it............I am trying ......but not feeling happy yet........would be much much happier at home
Why do the thoughts never include more time off with pay or better yet a pay raise.
I am gonna be a farmer.....that's the life .......if you need something you just go get it..........nice.

Hoss
