Psalm 27:4 "One thing have I desired; that will I seek after. That I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life."

So, I went to the livestock auction today because Daisy is lonely without Violet & it just hurts to hear her cry.

So, I sat there for FOUR HOURS while they auctioned chickens, and ducks, and roosters, and turkeys, and rabbits, and ducks, and rabbits, and chickens, and rabbits, and chickens!!!

OMGosh!!

It then took 20 minutes to auction the hay & straw and I had enough time to drink a water & eat a hot dog & it was finally time. They went through the goats & sheep so fast I was shaking when they FINALLY brought out the Blackbelly sheep. When it was FINALLY my turn I waved my card. And I got very excited when I won & I took them both because I had sat there for FOUR HOURS while they auctioned chickens, and ducks, and roosters, and turkeys, and rabbits, and ducks, and rabbits, and chickens, and rabbits, and chickens!!!

I think the old farmers got a real kick out of me. But the seller came and told me that the one we’ve named Daffodil has the markings that can be registered. She was really nice too, and gave me her name and number in case I had questions, or wanted a ram down the road.

I was there for 5 hours and 15 minutes total. It was a very draining day.

I know they will take a few days to settle in because everything is new and different, but they are head butting Daisy and pushing her around and that has been extremely difficult for Kristen.  It was probably too soon after Violet to get new sheep, but the opportunity for Blackbelly lambs won’t come along every day.  Our new girls, Daffodil & Lilac are American Blackbelly sheep.  Different colors and 2 months older & bigger than our little dainty bottle fed baby.  Pictures this week.

And That’s What’s Happening on the Homestead.
