Visit today from lots of cows and new calves...including old friends Beatrice and Marlys with their '11 progeny. I just named the new alpha cow ( the only one Benita will back down from) after my friend and Field Lab visitor - "Porter" Palmer. Her pigment lacking white calf is named Bill.
Did the split shift again today....moved one load of sand in the morning - some quality time at the GrubShack - laundry (at the laundromat - too hot for the bike'o'worsher) - more quality time at the GrubShack - then a final load of sand to prep the pad for the SE watertank. 81,93,54,0,B
