    Yes! He used to ski race, so it's funny he spends all this time on the trails and hasn't skied in years.

    We really need to get Stanley in with our gilt , butcher some pigs, and get the kidding stall set up. We are such bad farmers this year! I also need to do Patty's CDT shot and bolus her. And get another round bale dropped off. So glad we only have a few animals this year.

    FEM, I want to do toltrazuril with the kids this year. Start at 3 weeks? Or did I remember that wrong? I'm assuming Patty is bred anyway, she was with Mr. Clifford for over 3 weeks in September.

    Yep - start at three weeks and then every three weeks there after until about 12 weeks is what I do. After that I kinda play it by ear. Kinda depends on the conditions here.
    Yes - put Stanley with the gilt - he needs some action - and you need some baby pigs!

    Thanks, I thought it was something like that!

    In the moving process both my kids got to be really bad sleepers . Sigh. I think they're both asleep now so I'm going to sleep, baby doesn't always sleep all night anymore. Sigh. Getting better though.

    Nope. She naps for 30 minutes at a time. Oh well. At least she's a happy tired baby and the playroom is child proofed now so I can sit down for more than 2 seconds at a time lol

    FIL invited us to a potluck tomorrow. The cousin we hate whose wife is one of the most horrid women to be around is going to be there. DH wants to go. I'm trying to find an excuse, and quick!
