Well this might sound weird, but I am very excited about this treatment for mastitis that I found out about. I'll start from the beginning. . .

Let's see. . . for a couple of days last week I put my 3 yearlings (Maple, Blueberry and Double Bubble) in with our little Nigerian buck, Berry Blast. Double Bubble was in heat one of those days, I just hope he bred her! I saw him trying, but he is so little, even to them!

Well, I have not posted as much lately. It STILL has been raining a lot, and is very muddy outside. Now it's time for some sunshine!

I guess this answered my question about whether to put sand, gravel, dirt, etc in the barn! This morning it started raining, a lot, and it still is raining and is suppose to rain for the next 10 days... fun. I guess it's good for the grass to grow though :). BUT, this caused a big problem. When we cleaned out the barn, it made the barn a little lower than the ground above it (the ground is sort of slanted there anyway). So a few hours of raining and 3/4 of the barn was squishy/mud or had 6 inches of water in it. . . something had to be done then otherwise the milkers could not come back from being milked since it was soo muddy. So out in the rain we go, with the tractor and some rakes. My brother got dirt from a place on the property and dumped it in the barn while we leveled it out. It actually turned out really nice and got the job done (that was going to be done anyway), done a lot faster! It only took us about 1 1/2 hours. . . not too bad. But I was covered in a lot of mud :). Now just when it gets cold, we can throw some straw in there.
