  2. Hello Ice. I can see you have a really cool image on your blog. I have a horrible bug that has made me feel lousy. Heading off for bed and hopefully a good night's sleep. Will catch up with your blog tomorrow after the kids have finished pet day.

  5. Timepsanner - Had a decent nights sleep still sick but things are on the improve.

    Hi Jennifer - I had a bug so hygiene as you would know came first.

    Anne and Cameron have 240 cows in the shed. Calving has finished bar one cow and she's overdue by two weeks.

  6. Thats really neat to get an inside look at the dairy! Is this your friend Anne you speak about? Its a dirty job, but looks like fun, until I had to do it myself 2x a day every day! LOL I'll just look at pictures of her doing it! When I gmy goat it'll be the same thing for me, but of course on a MUCH smaller scale!

  7. It is dirty work. This is Ann and Camerons shed but the lady you see is my friend Susan. The guy is one of the farm workers - so pass there. That is a shed I think from the 1960's or 1970's you don't see them like that much anymore. Doesn't worry me helping in the shed. Goats are way cleaner to deal with than cows!!!
