With four baby steers to look after, a dwelling for their comfort was needed, so the carpenter was called in, and a new home is being built. Looks pretty good so far, and I’m sure the little fellas will be quite content, I just hope it’s big enough, for when they grow up!
Somehow I can’t see Emma sending them off to market.
Another four legged friend has been has been welcomed to the family; this time a little, abandoned, baby piggy (it’s a baby piggy not a piglet). Well actually it was dumped.
Dumped into a garbage bin would you believe, Emma passing this bin, heard the poor little thing, and rescued it and took it home. I imagine a new sty, is next on the carpenters list.
A few photo’s of work in progress on the barn, the lady that rescued the calves, gave them to Emma, with my two granddaughters, and Miss Poppy May warily watching the little piggy.
On the home front when asked what she would like for dinner the War Office said “a meat pie would make a change”, which I suppose was true, haven’t made one in a while.
Last night we dined on a meat pie , creamy mashed potatoes, steamed baby carrots, pumpkin and cabbage. TWO drank James Squire 150 Lashes, and I? Lipton’s Iced Peach Tea. 🙂 The pie looked something like this.
