Striped Kitty- Lil skunk visiting

We were out doing chores the other day and I noticed a fluffy tuft of Black and White hair poking out of the grass. I quickly got the dogs into the barn. It does however explain the odor coming from our blind and deaf farm dog.

I took a few photos as I tried to scurry him along.




Rain, Rain, Rain, Rain

We have had 10″ of rain her in the last 2.5 days. We have also had trouble getting to town because of flooded roads. We haveĀ  had 3 waves of storms come through and dowse our farm and the surrounding area.

Our pig pens are water logged. We have some huts that have filled up inside from rain blowing in. Our clay based soil soaks up and turns into deep mud. There are places that look completely dry until you step down and your foot sinks down 8″. I have had to move some little pigs around because their legs were to short for the deep mud.

Today it has cleared up and is in the upper 80 degree range. even with so much water and mud, in the next 2 days we will have dry pens. The next 2 days are suppose to be in the 90 degree range which will dry the dark soil out quickly.
