I went out and found a tiny pullet egg out there in the pile today! That means the others won't be far behind.
One of my older hens isn't laying very well. I know it is the one that is laying the fragile, very pointed eggs, but beats me which hen that is!
Now that the younger hens (of which I have ten) are starting to lay, I will have more eggs than I know what to do with - except that lots of people at work want to buy them.
The people who have been thinking about the horse have decided on buying her. This has been such a long process, and a painful one, to be honest. I just want her to have a good life, and the sooner that she gets started on it, the easier it will be on me - seeing her out there and knowing she's leaving just seems more painful than having her gone. It feels like a dream is dying, never a fun feeling, but I need to live my life - and right now, my life is driving kids around, and feeding sheep, and teaching. My life doesn't include teaching a young mare to behave, or training her to saddle, not right now anyway.
Yesterday, for inside chores I made 24 sandwich buns, a pot of potato and leek soup, a loaf of sandwich bread and finished the FAFSA. Outside, I trimmed 6 out of 8 sheep's hooves and wormed 4 out of the eight (babies seemed too young? Maybe someone can advise?) and did a quick run through the garden to get the most obvious weeds, and a quick run through the stalls. Tonight, I do need to work on taxes and folding laundry (the chore that never ends). Fortunately, there is enough soup and sandwich rolls for dinner tonight, too. I also have quite a lot of grading, but since most of them are late assignments, I don't feel the absolute need to get them back right away - you miss the deadline, you are lucky I will even grade it....
Off to finish the second (or third, depending how you count it) part of my day!
