When I was driving past the Nursery on the way out of Town I saw a wonderful sign that I new would help me in a big way. It screamed: $5.00 for 20 kg of Carrots. They are juicing carrots but whole cares. They are only going to the guinea pigs anyway. Well that is what I thought.
While down in the vegie garden yesterday afternoon, I saw that some cheeky animal (not one of mine for once) had 1/2 dug out some carrots. They were going a little soft so offered them to Lorray and Lavender. They loved them... I knew that cows loved carrots from ages ago but didn't realise how keen they are on them until then.
Seeing I had two 20kg bags of carrots I decided to get 1/2 bucket full and see what they did with it. hehe. They were in the front paddock near the front gate when I called them. I called them and hey presto there they were running like it was their last meal. I tipped out the bucket worth of carrots and they sucked them down. Funny sight! Nice to know that I can give them some carrots for a treat every now and then. Sausage and Lorray were into them immediately but Lavender took a little getting used to them. She was fine once she realised that she actually had to CHEW them. lol
I am now down to about 10kg of carrots left out of my lot, having taken some to work as well... Will need more towards the end of the week me thinks...
