The Adventures of Boo Berry Betty and TLC Cai-Cai on Friday—-Starting Water in a BIG Wind, Friday, April 21, 2023

(Backing up the water so the headgate will fill)

Mom and Dad just thought (HOPED) that last week’s big wind was the last big wind!

(Scary walking across that tiny board—Mom won’t even try.  I don’t get out of my basket)



Not at ALL!

(That is the trash dug out of the canal so the water could start)

We (Mom, Dad, Me (sometimes) worked all day in a big, big wind Tuesday and all day Wednesday.

70 m.p.h. gusts of wind getting the water started on the farm.

(We (Terry) must check the headgate several times a day to keep the trash out)

This is a hard, hard time, not only the wind but all the winter trash that comes down the water, plugging up the headgate.   That makes Dad have to go check the headgate off and on. As I already said. 🙂 Boo Berry

In the afternoon, Kya and

Black Beauty, and my human sister, Shannon helped.

Once the water got to the horse pasture, Shannon, Kya, and Black Beauty took over setting the water in the horse pasture; Mom and Dad finished up on the new corn field.

It is so cold here we have been in a freeze warning which will last until Sunday.

Mom grew up in a huge fruit orchard—so this frozen stuff always makes her glad our livelihood is not based on fruit.  This time of year is dangerous for fruit growers.

Okay, here is the deal: the WATER IS ON the FARM!!!  (of which I get to go and help with) At least two (or more) times a day.

Mom says I am a very good irrigator!  I don’t jump in the water like Kya and stop the tubes,

I just hang right by Mom like Black Beauty does Shannon.

TLC stays home all stretched out by the fire! Hummmmm.

(Who is stretched out by the fire?  I am guarding the farmyard. TLC)

  1. Judging from your furs, it is REALLY a big wind over there, B. Mom and I are learning. We knew the next thing would be to get all the debris out of the water so it doesn’t clog up. And there it is!!

    Love and licks,
