10.6.39

Extremely dry & pretty hot. Began hoeing maincrop potatoes, which are mostly through. Lettuces & marrows seem O.K. Many flowers in the garden drooping. The rainwater tank is now almost empty (the first time this has happened, but E. was here alone last summer).
K. wound herself up to her stake, then caught her hind leg & wound this so that it was twisted behind her neck & held there so tightly that I could only extricate her by undoing her collar. Very lame in consequence & ankle-joint swollen, but evidently nothing broken. Her yield today between 2 & 21 /2 pts.
M. (not stripped) about 11 /2pts.
8 eggs (plus 9 laid out = 17). Sold 2 score @ 2/-.
No. this week: 90.

    We knew that M. was unhappy with the new arrival. But this level of violence and intimidation is something unexpected. Wonder how she managed to get K.’s leg tied up that way?

    K sounds like a very silly goat. I would not expect this of one – M *must* be involved!

    Hmmmm. Spouse’s family once had a goat that hung itself–wound its tether around a tree, then jumped over a low branch. Could K have attempted suicide, or did M just arrange it to look that way?
