It is always fun baking with this kid.
LN is trying a cake recipe for her 4-H Favorite Foods contest.
Her entry forms are due Friday so of course we just chose a cake to test.
We always cut it close but not usually this close.
Spice cake with chocolate pecan filling and chocolate glaze
Sounds good but we'll see.
She baked the cake layers today and will finish cake tomorrow.
That means cake for supper, yum!
Lambs are being born.
7 but only 5 are still here.
A ewe stepped on one of her lambs and broke her leg right after being born.
After splinting her she never got mobile enough to clear her lungs or get enough nutrition to survive.
Another ewe seems to have a cold or pneumonia.
We've medicated her but her lamb died.
I think she got sick from whatever her Mom had and transmitted through her milk.
This is the part I hate about having animals but it is a fact of life.
I have another cow due (actually a few days overdue) and 2 more ewes.
I'm hoping my bad luck has played out.
