Trim goat hooves, give yearly shots

Get all the winters wood cut
Ship the calves
Bring the work table down from the barn and turn into an island for the kitchen (over100 years old)
Double check and make sure everything is winterized at the house
Set up the water heaters one for the goats and one for the chickens
Finish cleaning the chicken house and winterizing the chicken house
Get a little hunting in (hubby) and at least a day to relax (both of us)! :)
This sounds like a lot but most can be done in four days hard work for both of us.
We are usually not this far behind but with hubby working 6 and 7 day weeks and since they are talking after thanksgiving the next job may be in the middle of Illinois. This means he will only be home occasionally for (they are saying) maybe three months, so the more we can get done together while he is off means less I have to try to do by myself. :) If we get all this done the only problem (I see now) is changing the blade on the tractor between the hay fork and the blade. Maybe we will not get any snow or ice this winter and I can keep the hay fork on.......haha..... that would never happen! But I do love Missouri so its the good with the bad!
