Sheep moving was a rain out today. Oh we could have done it as most of it is done inside the barn but by the time I noticed it was raining the sheep were already wet. Man handling full grown ewes into places they really don't want to go isn't all that much fun anyway, trust me it gets a lot less fun when the sheep have wet wool.
Not like an extra day is going to matter to anyone except the rams anyway.
So we got about two tenths of an inch of rain today. It came down in a steady but light pour for a few hours and then we had a heavier downpour this evening. Hopefully this will be enough to break this mini-drought we been having for the last 3 months or so.
I actually put on my mud boots to feed tonight. Something I haven't had to do in a long time.
This afternoon I had an interesting discussion with a local while I was waiting around at the gas station. The gentleman was bad mouthing survivalist commenting on how stupid they were since in his opinion once things fall apart everyone is going to turn on everyone else and it's going to be "Mad Max" for all until everyone is dead.
I really despise these types. They are more dangerous and useless than Multi-Cultist and Feminist in many ways. I can't figure out what these types actually think. I mean do they even know that human's had a history that spanned for thousands of years before the first electric line was strung and Henry Ford rolled his first car off the production line?
According to these dimwits mankind has never done anything but killed each other, only the blood thirsty survived by stealing from every peace loving producer that was around and not even immediate family is capable of working together.
It's like centuries of written history never existed to these types and nothing was ever accomplished before the internal combustion engine.
I have noticed most with this attitude are raging atheist which I am sure isn't a coincidence but not a topic I usually go into very far.
I quickly tired of his diatribe and I found a good way to cut the discussion short and leave him pondering when he made the comment that after a collapse I wouldn't even be able to repair my fences when they broke.
I asked why I would need to repair fences when folks like him had no gas to drive 50 miles over the speed limit and endanger my flock. Kinda means fences become mostly obsolete doesn't it?
At least until the range wars start back up anyway.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!!!!
