Taking time off for a few weeks
« on: June 04, 2006, 06:14:18 AM »
Hi everyone

I will be away for a few weeks, the winter is coming in and I have so much to do around the farm.
The winter feed has to be brought in and stored, which will involve a few trips over the next few days, we have to erect and reinforce some the winds breaks for the Alpacas, and their vitamin injections have to be given to see them over the winter, the goats have to be have their winter feed sorted plus the sheep have to be drenched and  checked...they are all pregnant now, also it's time to start halter training the Alpacas and that takes up to several hours a day for a couple of weeks.

I also have three talks to do before the end of July..two for the meds students and one for the local Pathology clinic, so I have a some paper work to write up on safety in the work force.

For all those who have e-mailed me please bear with me I WILL get round to replying to you all.

Take care and behave yourselves..see you all in a few weeks.

Love youall.

A farmer's lot is not a happy one Jan! Especially on the South Island of En Zed.

Hope to see you soon dear!

Well this just sucks!  I don't give a rats ass (or should I say a goats butt?) what chores/responsibilities you have to tend to.  I know I know, it can't always be about us (read me).

Jan, I miss you already  >:(

I know you have to take care of all the animals, that's important.   We'll be here when you are able to return.

Love & hugs,

Hi Sweetie!!

Well, boo hoo. I guess we'll just have to make due without your lovely posts until your chores are done!

Like Alan, I'm missing you already, honey, but I understand...what, with all your babies depending on you and all, that's what it's all about!

Soon, though, we'll be in Montreal, laughing up a storm, stayin' up real late, trying to make the most of EVERY SECOND!!

Good luck with those classes, Jan, they're lucky to have you, honey.

Til next time, lots of Love!

Well, MY halter training just took a couple of days.....um, we are talking about the same thing here, aren't we???

Oops, too much information.    ;D

Gosh, I wish you had Wi Fi in those fjords Jan....you could dip your sheep and dole out loving word of support to each and every one of us simultaneously!

Will miss you, hurry back and be careful.

Darn it!  Like you Jan, I'm the last one to chime in. ;) 

I just saw this thread, and it made me sad...I will miss you.  Always do.

And be careful out there.

Love you,
