RosieThe last time we went to our local livestock market we saw that young weaners were fetching high prices, so we decided to turn over the two little heifers now, instead of growing them on to a year old before selling. They are both four months old so I advertised Rosie on Gumtree as a potential house cow for the asking price of $450.
There was quite a lot of interest, and the first people to inquire wanted to buy Blossom as well, for company and to kick start their cattle herd, so that worked out well for both parties.
Two little heifers off to their new home.
I planted that hedge approximately ten years ago and really loved it for all of this time. It broke up the yard, giving the illusion of smaller rooms leading off the main garden. But it was difficult to grow anything else in its proximity and with the very dry seasons of late, it was looking scrappy. Time to go, time for a change.
And finally, just in case you were fretting about us working too hard during the Easter long weekend, we had a small break last weekend. We never go away over Easter, everyone else is doing that.
Only fifty minutes away from home, this would have to be one of our favorite overnight, mini-break spots along the River Murray.
Meg's first time away with us in the caravan. That shows how long it's been since we took the van out! She was such a good girl, slept like a baby on her little bed between the two tiny single beds in the van. Alan stayed at home to be on guard for fox duty, but if you think he's missed out on all the fun, he had a wonderful day out yesterday with his favorite person, eldest son Michael.
I do hope you have had a wonderful Easter break.
