Hello my dear readers, I had planned on posting the most awesome recipe of rabbit liver pate including some outstanding locally produced maple Syrup but we had a opps and the bag with the liver got frozen, so know I need to thaw it out and I will get that recipe made for very soon.
I did some rabbit butchering this week, my biggest female was 8 pounds, and I can see why she did not have kits.. way to fat inside but she has a lovely massive pelt on her that will be put to good use in the near future.
On to some sad news.. I had written about my outstandingly awesome Blue Purrpot last year and that he had gotten stepped on as a kitten by Caleb, it was touch an go on if he would live from being stepped on, It was amazing to all that he pulled though and it became a joke that my “free farm cat” was most surely not free by the time I paid his medical bills, well he appeared to be fragile but healed and we had him altered at 9 months of age. Sadly it would appear that the damage done when he was younger has come back as he matured and it was just to much in the end.
You were only with us Blue Cat aka Blueberry for a year.. but you were one of the greats my sweet happy purry loving boy.. Rest in Peace my sweetheart. Thank you to Farmer Y for trusting us with him, and I am grateful that I will still get to visit with his littermates.
On a more positive note, we did our annual apple Blossom Photo Shoot for our little Dezbot and I have to say that I very much like this years photos.
We also had a surprise in the barn this past week, the one yearling we thought had missed, surprised us with a single small but active and healthy ram lamb.. can you believe it.. another ram lamb..
On the other hand, the weaned lambs are in their own mob now and are doing very well in their own pen and area, I am very pleased so far with how they are doing. The next two days are planned farm processing days for the freezer camp, and the weekend is booked from sun up to sun set and it will be so worth it!
J > I can tell from the photos you’re so at ease with animals, and they with you. Beautiful (or rather, handsome) cat. And a much loved and well-cared-for dog. They reflect you.
Thank you J, while I very much see and respect them as they are, (so they are not furkids) they however very much part of my daily life and are farm family..
Rest in peace, sweet Blue. Your brother and sister will live on for you and help keep an eye on your people when they can.
Thank you Mel, they are blessed to have a great home with you an your family, his other sister is doing great as well
So sorry to hear he’s gone on, FG!
Hugs to you both.
