First, I have to say, although this was quite an investment, I think we'll save on hay over the summer in the long run. This stuff is great. Stephen invested in a handy little tow behind the tractor sprayer and we bought some of this stuff. A few weeks ago, Steve sprayed the pasture. Our biggest concern, other than Burdock and the multitude of other weeds, is the fact that more often than not, I end up locking the girls out of the pasture because of the "slobbers" they manage to get every year from the clover. This is supposed to kill clover. So far, so good, I see dead weeds all over and here's hoping it will do in the white clover. AND the good grass is growing well.
And as you can see, the girls are enjoying it immensely.....
We've had all the pups into the Vet for a relatively clean bill of health. Up to date on every one's vaccinations, toenails trimmed and started on their heartworm program. Koda Bear will go in on this Friday for his summer grooming. Although he has formed a new very loud "barking" habit. Good grief!
Zoe and Steve have had some successes and failures with the above ground gardens. We've lost some plants and had to replace some. Monday night, we found ourselves out there at 11pm covering everything to protect against frost. Things are looking better.
Kola's weight is much better under control and I don't have the worries I had last year over the massive amounts of hair she was shedding and Pre-Cushing's. I started her on her Palatech (levothyroxine) earlier and now am weaning her off slowly. She's looking good. And you can tell she is feeling so much better. Has quite a spring in her step these days.
