The summer continues to be challenging. Lost some more lambs, this time to coyotes. Have a donkey and two horses- very effective guardians due to their size and dislike of canines, plus the kids love them.
Was hoping to pour concrete in September, getting anything done is cheap right now since everybody needs work- but I can't get a plan from Frank Kipe, who must have bigger to fish to fry. I really want him to do it since he's the only one I know who works on dairies this scale. May just take what I have to someone local, although I don't know who. I could come up with most of it myself, and just go abck and forth with the designer until his picture looked like the one in my head. Maybe Frank'll get caught up here soon enough,.
