Busy Busy

Summer means busy days, at work and on the farm, so much to do (and of course I want to do it all) and so very little time to do it.

It occurs to me that I haven’t shared very many photo since my wonderful Teeswater joined the flock. She is the sweetest, and the cutest, little sheep on the place. (Don’t tell the other girls) The only thing better than the way she looks is the way she feels.

I call her Amanda Panda because of her black and white markings. She is affectionate but startles easily, at just 4 months old I expect her to settle once she gains a little more maturity.

Mia has become the barn-cat impersonator. I haven’t gotten Al to accept the house cats in the pasture yet so we plan to get them their own barn kitten, later this year or early next year. For now, rodents are subject to Mia’s awesome defensive skills.

Maryann hatched one of her own silkie chicks .

Maryann and Gilligan are hosting some surrogate Icelandic eggs, which should hatch any day. The other half dozen are residing underneath Pippen in another brooder. These ladies are so stinkin broody I decided to save on electricity this time around.

So that’s what’s happening in our neck of the woods.
