hello what’s up guys we received our first true day of mountainous snow out here we’ve received 5 inches 5 inches accumulated to this point and we tried to procure a birth on the morning plowing snow removal and I broke a shear pin on one aspect of that element so and I don’t dangle one so I dangle to sprint and procure a peculiar shear pin and unfortunately I didn’t dangle a spare but I’ve never broke one earlier than so after I sprint and procure a spare I’m gonna care for extra so as that I don’t dangle to then stop and sprint due to it’s a snail coming down there’s 5 inches on the driveway we would like to be plowing this now not taking an hour out of our day to bustle to city so we’re gonna be taking care of that going and getting a shear pin here in a minute but we received an update on the farm and we’re gonna sprint take a look at out lilah and sprint ogle what she’s doing alright guys so unfortunately remaining night we misplaced our lone survivor piglet it simply received smashed by the overall varied piglets that got here out this morning to feed and he or she didn’t come up it became within the course of within the course of its mattress and unnecessary squished silo seems to be little after I film her from this perspective but she’s in actuality very corpulent she’s all lined in cress gorgeous now due to we’re free feeding her we’re gonna sprint focus on that expose you guys what we’re doing Lila furthermore received herself a Salt Lick which she in actuality loves she didn’t procure it I sold it for her so I received Lila a Salt Lake but she’s been going to city on her Salt Lick which I haven’t I simply didn’t I didn’t procure her one earlier than but she in actuality loves it so we received it for and I form of noticed that she wanted it love a pilers I realized that she wanted it due to she would continually when we would play along with her she’ll continually lick our hands and he or she’d be licking the salt off of your hand so I became love imply I dangle to procure her salt love she doesn’t love us as basic now but she’s pleased along with her salt love correct minute cow so guys starting up starting up within the iciness tumble we made up our minds to birth feeding Lila free feed beefy feed feeding around bails free procure admission to to the feed so she’s received round bales in here that she’s inspiring off of these round bales are Timothy grass it’s costing me $40 a round bale and it’s lasting about a month so here is admittedly simply the second one which we’ve gone thru needs to be lasting rather of bit longer than one but here is most productive the second one we’ve gone thru we simply made up our minds to free feed her all the way in which thru the iciness simply to create sure that she will get lots of feed all the way in which thru the iciness I’d rather her approach out of the iciness corpulent and overfed versus underfed and struggling to positioned on weight going into the springtime I order so I figured rather of bit extra money out we create sure that Lila’s taken care of so I received this up within the aspect here where the sheets are at and that retains the goats from coming over and inspiring every little thing that you can well presumably ogle my roof collapsed simply rather of bit there I never trimmed off these extra pieces and it paid for it so that they’ve crooked the sheets which is graceful they had been simply extra sheets anyway I don’t know that we ever would dangle used them for a long way on the least but I aloof received to minimize these but the snow has came across its system off the roof so guys here’s a joke round bail it’s reasonably blown apart she’s doing an correct job of inspiring it and what I did the main time became I in actual fact received a pair of of this field fencing and I wrapped it around the bail and that did in actuality successfully to create the bail remaining longer and it stayed collectively critically better but she beat up the fencing to where I in actuality couldn’t reuse it again so I dangle to return up with a peculiar design to back my round bail intact to where she will be able to feed off of it without busting it up and making it seek love this cuz as that you can well presumably ogle we’ve received lots of feed loss it’s all this grass now not getting eaten here within the mornings we strive and return in and care for what’s out here that’s clear care for it after which feed it to the goats after which push every little thing up right into a pile so as that is the morning routine with lilah that goat misplaced her herd they simply sprint out into the woods rather of bit after which don’t name to her it’s form of it’s rather of unhappy due to you’ll simply ogle him sitting within the market and to boot they simply don’t love hello we’re over here stop freaking out successfully it seems to be little after I film from up where I stand but if I procure down here she seems to be lots larger that’s so basic when she’s wet she’s increasing though she’s increasing she loves her horns rub gorgeous within the motivate of the horn she’s love something messed along with her too she doesn’t love that so guys when we received lilah she became in actuality exposed she became exposed to a bowl and we had been form of hoping that she became by probability pregnant despite the incontrovertible truth that she’s ogle I gain she’s creeping up on two years in March I gain became her birth month so she’s ready to be Brad or will be ready to be bred rapidly we had been form of hoping that she would had been bred but it completely doesn’t seek like it she will get very corpulent on the grain but she’s now not she’s now not are the the grass but she’s now not conserving all of it gorgeous guys that is that is Lila’s morning routine that is form of what we’re coping with this day with this first mountainous snowstorm coming in it’s looking love all next week as all snow so we would like to finish on top of this the snow verbalize to abet care for all of it the way in which thru the iciness you don’t wish to procure within the motivate of to your snow due to otherwise you’re making all of your machines work too intelligent you’re working too intelligent and unfortunately due to of that that’s why we snap that shear pin on the snow machine the snowblower due to it’s all unique and now not regarded as one of many snows packed down yet we received rocks and regarded as one of many rocks jammed in there and broke it so let’s head to the retailer let’s sprint procure a shear pin will approach motivate throw it in it and enact taking out snow for the day by the level we procure motivate every little thing we’ve performed will presumably quilt it up be correct Lila [Music] [Music] guys we received motivate with some shear pins received a pair of quite lots of sizes too due to I wasn’t sure what we wanted due to your total shear pin busts off and to boot they went flying thru the snowblower but it completely seems to be love we’re now not gonna be snow blowing anymore due to it began raining by the level we received motivate so all of this snow is gonna procure rained on so we’ll wait to seem how long it rains cuz lots of times it simply washes it away and it became looking love we had been gonna be getting rain for about a day or two earlier than next week and a bunch of snow heads so we would procure lucky and now not dangle to enact any snow blowing for the remainder of the day but we’ll procure out and we’ll repair this shear pin there guys here is our pin that we received we received two varied kinds what this seems to be precisely love the varied one despite the incontrovertible truth that the varied one is gold in nature but these are shear pins so we’re gonna stick this down in there strive it out
