Lowri - This has been a hard weekend. I haven't been allowed to help TM build fence. She said it took about four days to get all the burrs out of my coat last time and she really didn't want to do it again. I tried to tell her that it would be weeks before our next show. She didn't care.
I wanted to help doctor the cows, but I wasn't allowed near them. TM and PR put the cows in the small pen and ran them through the chute. They were using the headgate to catch the cows so they could worm them and give them shots. They managed to get everyone except Gracie. She decided she really didn't want to play. She reared up and crashed down on the cattle panel. It was amazing, the thick steel wire panel just bent under her weight. She escaped. PR and TM decided to get her next week. You should have seen TM work trying to straighten out the panel. It will never be the same.
I wanted to help with chickens, but TM has them trained to come when she calls. I wanted to help with the garden, but TM wouldn't let me come inside the fence. I especially wanted to help with the bunnies, but TM didn't need my help feeding and watering them. I offered to use them as a self-feeder, but TM said No. I wanted to help with the air flow in the house, but PR wouldn't let me lay on the air conditioner vent.
It was a tough weekend, when all I wanted to do is help.
