The feeder is simply two pallets put together with sections of old floor boards with legs nailed on to those. When the cow knocks it over and it all falls apart you just put some additional nails in along with the old ones and it is like new again!
Now I will fill up three feeders each morning.
These were a few of this year's kids that we will soon butcher.
That's what happens to mice around here. But we have been giving the cats cat food so they aren't hungry enough to want to eat the mice they catch right away so they play with the mice until they don't move any more and then eat it or else a different cat takes it away and eats it.
This morning the sun hadn't risen above the tree tops until around 8:15. So I do chores in the dark, morning and evening.
