I was in shock and very sad. Over the course of the next few hours I realized it was Theo. He had a stomach as tight as a drum and only 2 weeks previous he had killed a chicken. I knew killing poultry was now firmly ingrained into his brain and we have no room for a poultry killer. Time to find Theo a new home. He is perfect in every other way.
It was easy to find Theo a home, the lady met him and all criteria was met on both sides so the family is coming on Saturday to pick him up.
All the work I put into setting up for the turkeys and heck I really liked them but the feathers are kinda out of my wings for now. Maybe in the fall or next year.
In the meantime our eyes are open to a new doggy friend for Winston.
Tomorrow the roof, we have the boom truck delivering all the shingles in the morning and a crew of friends coming so this is the weekend to get the roof done. Its high time. We were going to do it last fall but we missed the time frame. The shingles are so curled up that I dont think they can last another season. Dwight is so good at organizing this. My job is cooking for the crew! You know there are some jobs that are just meant for the guys.
Busy with dividing plants, landscaping all the properties, clipping trails, checking out a site for the hobbit house..........hobbit house you say? Stay tuned:)
The trillium's are ready to explode, the lilac blooms are about an inch long, day lilies are about 10" high, grass is getting nice and green. This week it is a bit on the cool side with minus digits every night. Not sure what that will do to things that are starting to leaf out and flower. Next week I will have to get back out on the trails and cut out brambles and saplings before they all start leafing and I cant see anymore.
Dwight is also very busy between work....might be moving up a notch and also with getting his timbers ready for the timber frame course we are hosting in June. Both the tractor and skidder have been giving him problems. The skidder in particular and no one can seem to figure out what it is.....time to call in a professional.
