Silver Sunday and Being Thankful

And the words of the Lord are flawless, like silver... Psalm 12:6 NIV

I am thankful to the Lord, my God, for:

- tiny, day-old chicks
- the honks of Canada geese winging past
- a scissortail flycatcher on a fence wire
- cardinals at the birdfeeder
- the Muscovy ducklings "talking" to me
Silver Sunday

He will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you will find refuge; 
His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. You will not fear 
the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day.
Psalm 91:4 NIV

Making Dosage Balls for Goats

Several years ago I began giving my goats an herbal wormer from Hoegger Goat Supply. I've been very happy with the results; their coats were shiny and slick and the fecal counts from the vet were good.

While you can just top dress their feed with the herbal powder, I've found that mine tend to turn over their bowls or just ignore the powder altogether on the bottom of the bowl. By making treats with the powder I am sure that they get the entire dose.

Installing the Bees

Back in January when I ordered my bees, the April pick-up date seemed very far away. But the day finally did arrive, and hubby and I drove an hour and a half to pick up "the girls" at the home of the beekeeper who taught the class I took.
