A couple of things

First, you see the left sidebar? Those are the businesses that have so far donated a raffle item. Please check them out just to give them a bit of link love. They have been very generous with the prizes. And in the next few weeks, I will tell you what they are.

 Calving has begun here on the Neophyte Homestead. Mama has had the first calf. A bull! I will try to go out and get some pictures today. She birthed him late afternoon. A daytime birthing and I missed it! It is the year of the Z. Any name suggestions?

 A cold front moved in last night. I am grateful that I wasn't fooled by the 80f temps we were having. Hope everyone tucked in their heat seekers last night. This weekend I will finally be planting my summer veggies. I have been harvesting greens. However my lettuce up and bolted in the warm temps. I went ahead and allowed them to seed. And will volunteer grow them throughout the summer. Some people call it naterulization. Sorry had a sling blade moment.

 We have been having lambs sporadically. Normally they all pop out within days of each other. This year it has been weeks and month. I am sure it has something to do with the extreme heat from last summer and fall. These girls go into heat twice a year, so I am hoping it does mess up their timing permanently.

 Small goes on his feild trip today. I will be sure he files a report on those machines that milk for us all.

and finally the new blogger sucks. mobile updates don't allow hard returns nor can you edit it. My netbook keyboard is broken so am using the on-screen keyboard. Very slow.

Zeb after Grandpa Walton!

Phelan said...

Donna, Zorro was my first thought as well.

Rex, Ziggy? People already think we're stoners. Lol!

Beth, oh The Walton's! That one never crossed my mind.

The boyfriend and I just got done watching Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (both the BBC series and the movie), so I vote Zaphod. ;)

Phelan said...

Zaphod. Large would love that.

HermitJim said...

I've always loved the name Zorro! I don't have a clue as to why, though!

Lamb said...

You are missing the obvious one....
ZARDOZ!

I vote for Zane, as in Zane Grey. I once heard Colonel Potter talk about this author on M*A*S*H.


Strange the odd little facts that we accrue over a lifetime.
