Sick Today – Sick and Tired

Both the Commander and I were home today with the flu. Body aches, coughing, chills, the whole 9 yards.

Of course Killarney picks today to break down the fence and spend a little “personal” time with Bablo. Dominic wasn’t happy but he was lucky to have avoided Killarney’s attentions.


The Commander took Sara and Molly out to handle the situation. He got Killarney by the horns while Molly got a mouthful of his flank, and proceeded to drag him back to his harem – why would he leave? The fence was bent back into place and blocked with the wheel barrow, let’s hope it holds till we feel better. The Commander mentioned that he noticed a huge chunk of Killarney wool on the ground outside, seems Molly wasn’t fooling around.


I love this picture. It had nothing to do with today’s activities except that it gives me a sense of peace and calm. Something of high importance when you feel unwell.

    I hope you are both feeling better soon. Those critters just seem to know when you’re weak and can’t drag them back to where they belong!

      Teresa, I offered to help the Commander round Killarney up but he said that “the dogs are here to help – time to earn their feed”. I’m sure he also saw how terrible I was feeling.

      OFG – Molly knows not to hurt them, she will go for an “ear” takedown if she is on her own. When she is out with the Commander she picks up the rear and makes sure there is little to no resistance, just in case anyone gets any ideas.

      I figured leaving out the Knife was an oversight, I know how much value you place on that important procedure!

    Hope you & hubby are feeling better soon. Farm work can be tough enough…but when you’re ill, it’s just horrid.

    Sorry you don’t feel well, that always sucks! Hope it passes soon, or at least you get some relief from the misery of the flu. Perfect timing for Killarney to do that! Love the pictures. Glad the boys are coming home from college so you’ll have some help!
