Yep, I got some rain last night. 1.6″ in all 3 gauges around the farm. It is an official measurement as I cleaned the dead bugs out of the gauges right as the rain started about 5 pm yesterday. It was a really good rain. No wind. It came straight down from 5 to about 9. Time to get the drills ready because there will be a lot of wheat drilled in this part of the world the next couple of weeks.
I’ve also got some does bred. I had turned Rumour in with a pen of does during the middle of July just to see what would happen. Guess what? He got some. Tammy took a trailer load to the vet yesterday and had them ultra-sounded. I probably need to sell a few of these as I really don’t want to kid a pile of them in December, but they are all really good, proven does. We’ll see.
Today, I will eat my traditional cheddar burger at Earl’s. It’s tradition for us to go to OYE or the State Fair, unload, setup and then go to Earl’s for lunch.
