JERAS Diary October 29

I have been building a room inside the big shed, rearranging things, cleaning…..two trips to town this week, chemical headaches from the building materials…I had to return the sheetrock for a safer wall material.

The animals are fine, except Shyla tore a hind toenail from the nailbed. It was barely attached. I used some lidocaine and pulled it with pliers, bandaged the foot and gave her a shot of penicillin. She feels fine now.

A neighbor down the road has been buying big loads of hay- he says mostly grass with a little alfalfa in it. He says the bales are 130#, which is 30# more than the feed store bales and he is selling it for  50 cents less a bale. I will check it out tomorrow. If it is good quality and not too much alfalfa, I will try a few bales. It could save us about $150 a month….that would be very nice, but I don’t want to get my hopes up too high.

We have 2 days left for the hay drive. On Tuesday, I will randomly draw donors from a hat to receive some great thank you gifts. Here is your chance to get lucky!

We want to thank all our supporters, without whom JERAS would not exist.

    Her toe is fine today, just sans a nail. He is getting a new load tomorrow and bringing me a bale. He delivers. I will call you. $14.50 and said to be 130#.
