Current Farm Photos:
It sure looks bleak in the paddocks right now with all the leaves fallen from the trees and the sky gray with cold. The goat does don't mind and are hard at work eating their hay out of their hayrack.
From left to right in this photo: Wind Chime, Dixie, Spice, Latte, Athena, Dudette, Macara and Caddy. The fainters Ribbon and Dandy, and the nigerian dwarf Almond Joy are on the other side of the hay rack and not seen in this photo.
Here are 2 of my Domonique hens, they're still looking a bit off from their winter feather molts but they are looking so much better then they did a few weeks ago. This breed of chicken is very docile and they are excellent layers.
Here are the boys nomming away at their hay.
That's a New Hampshire hen up front, they're a big docile breed and I really love them, I'm looking forward to having more baby chicks of this breed in the next few months. In this photo Gigantor is the goat on top of the hay rack, Tambourine is the big white goat up front and Midnight and Herhsey are to the right.
Every morning my "farm hands," try to help me get chores completed. Reuben and Ritz wait at the gate to help.. Ghost the cat gets a better view from above.
Here's an upclose of hay chow time.
And another upclose view of the gals nomming away.
Pepper hates, HATES HATES the cold but she will wait patiently at the gate for me to return from feeding and watering the goats each morning.
Ritz and Reuben are much more enthusiastic about my return to the dog yard..
And here's the cute little marked baby with its sport sibling snuggling in their nestbox.
The baby just loves the water dish.
Seriously it spends alot of time just licking the outside and dipping its head in the water.. what a little goofball.
Here's protective momma Confetti with her cute little marked baby!
