A clean herd
Mojo, Stormy & Sunny enjoying the sun!
Friday afternoon I got the CAE test results back from Bio Tracking and the entire herd, even Stormy-the- Wether tested negative for CAE.
Normally I don't give the does barn a good cleaning until March, but it was such a beautiful sunny day (high of 55) that I decided to go ahead and get the project done. Bekah is nearly seven years old now and much more of a help than she was last year, still I was surprised that what used to take me two days to do, we completed in just a single day! And since we got finished so much sooner than expected I got out my new Andis AGC2 clippers and trimmed Mystery's and Millie's udders. Previously I have used scissors and cheap Oster trimmer, so this was my first time using "real" trimmers. It cuts so nicely, the girls were lucky I didn't just give them a summer haircut on the spot! I used a #10 blade, but now that I've some experience with it, I will probably go back and use the proper #40 blade on them in a few days.
