Random News

I was hoping to get some pictures taken this morning, but I wasn't able to . . . forgot I had to charge my camera. Hopefully I can get the pictures of my 3 week olds taken tomorrow. They are awfully cute. With HUGE heads and lopped ears.

But, I did sex all 9 of my babies today . . . so the run-down is:

Laci's 3 - 2 does, 1 buck
Brandy's 4 - 2 does, 2 bucks
Tara's 2 - 1 doe, 1 buck

Great splits on the sexes there :).

All 3 of Laci's are pointed whites. I think one may be a blue pointed white. Because they are all pointed whites that means Josh doesn't carry REW. Exciting!

My cousin started working on the "custom cage system" he's building for me about a week ago. The first "section" is done. It's going to hold a total of 24 cages (12 on top, 12 on bottom) and have a big tray underneath each section. I can then just spray that tray down and it will go down some pipes and either out to the garden area or into a bucket. It will make life much easier . . . and cleaner for that matter. Each section that he's working on has 8 holes in it. Once the last two sections are done, we can assemble it all together and be ready to go.

We started cementing my barn in. We just have a small 2'x7' section done and I'll be doing small sections at a time (cement is not cheap!) until it's all done. It will be very nice once it is all done though.

When I was moving stuff to get ready to put this cement in, I picked up the pallet I have my feed cans on and found about 25-30 mice. Yeah, literally that many. I was shocked and didn't know what to do at first. I started stepping on the ones I could and then spent the next few hours in between moving stuff chasing and killing mice, LOL. Pretty funny scene. Over the course of the next few hours though, I (along with my brother & cousin :)) were able to kill about 12 mice. Yes, success!

Alright, well that's about it for now. Gotta get ready to give line dance lessons here :).
