I have some time in the train, coming back from my weekend to continue the military service. So here's another card.
At about 7:30 am, after a 1 hour and 10 minute long hike, I had this view from the top of the big Mythen.
These were by far the best 3 days, in those 18 weeks.
This is going to be the last card with impressions of my time in the military RS (recruit school).
As most of you know, we built a chicken coup for laying hens last fall. We thought we'd wait until it's warmer in spring to buy the hens.
Mixed group of mules and horses on a small ridge. Alpino (and me) are the second from the left side.
Like I mentioned in the last card, we also pull wood with the horses and mules. This is Zeno, one of the mules.
Like some of you probably remember I told you that Ushi got a companion.
Some of you asked me, what I have to do in military and what we do with the military animals.
It was an eventful week for Ushi!
The best thing about military is the comradeship. While you're expiriencing your physical limits, holding together as comrades is the thing which keeps you motivated to go on and give your best even though you'd like to quit.
To maintain the sheeps claws we have a "bed". We have to turn the sheep upside down and lay them in this bed. This way their feet look upwards.
The ascend in spring, respectively descend in fall on to the "Engstligenalp" is probably the most dangerous one I know of.
Ushi is doing great! You maybe can't see it in the picture quite as good, but she grew quite a bit.
A week ago we removed the old tiles of this roof. It's part of a nearly 300 year old house we own, which is under "homeland security". The tiles were also already over 100 years old.
Some people just seem to have no respect at all for others properties/belongings.
Hi! Just a little information.
I feel paranoid, Petra is watching me🧐👀
Tagged and registrated the calf today. She is now officially called Ushi.
I tested my skills as a hair dresser on our calf Tamina today😁
A buffet organized by farmers out of the region for thanksgiving day.
You may have seen the card about the life of our new calf. Problem is, she doesn't have a name yet. I would like to give you (the Sola community) the honor to pick a name for her😊
Here she is, our brave little survivor, our miracle calf. I'll share her still short, but already extremely turbulent life with you.
My contribution to the "The faces of Sola" challenge. Post a card with a picture (or a lot of pictures) that show you and put the link in the comments. Go! Here the link to it!
She (Odette) is getting a calve pretty soon, probably only a few hours until she's starting to get the presses.
We contracted a team of lumberjacks to cut down a small part of our woods (about 1 acre of our 31 acres). They rolled up with they're equipment 2 days ago…
The "Tschingelhörner" and the famous "Martins hole" in Elm, Glarus, Switzerland.
