angry bird strikes again
Several blue jays have been annoying James every day for over 2 weeks.
They actually fly low enough over him to strike him with their feet. Then they land and scream at him from just a foot or two away. He just wants to be left alone.

Thunder was rather scared of the marching band in Mason on Saturday, so Erinn had to get off to control him better. Directly behind Thunder in the upper picture is a 4 foot deep concrete drainage ditch that I was quite worried he would back into while she was on him. He was dancing around - more sideways and backwards than frontwards.
After the band scared him he decided not to load. It took about an hour and a half before he finally gave up and got in the trailer! This picture was taken at the Baptist church in Mason.

Anyone want some kefir grains? They are taking over our kitchen!! I guess I will give the extras to Hannah with her dog food this morning. I make 2 to 3 quarts of kefir daily, so the grains grow and multiply quite rapidly.

I mix up 3 gallons of milk/kefir/milk replacer for the goat kids every morning. The kefir really helps prevent scours from the milk replacer which I have to add to the milk in order to have enough for all 8 orphans.
