Here are a few fun and random photos from today on the farm.
Tucker be a good boy and guard the house!
When I walked out down the neighbors road this evening to take some photos I spied Sinjin and Blazes baby in the guava trees.
Baby Buckling Jack (our handsome and adorable Nigerian Dwarf) playing with and trying to eat a guava off the tree. What a good boy!
Steve is holding a bit of grass for little Shadow to eat. He’s our sweet little baby boy!
As we walk farther down the road Jack and Shadow follow us.
We come up to where the main herd is kept. I keep the baby boys in there all night with to get integrated into the herd. They are looking at Steve hoping he has a goatie snack!
What does he have?
We have this really beautiful tree about midway down our property, look at that fabulous fence (and handsome man)!
Scientists calibrate their instruments on how straight Steves fence is:
At the very back of the property we have some fruit trees, this is JackFruit. I’m waiting a little longer to harvest it. Right now it’s about the size of my head. JackFruit get REALLY big! This one is still young.
On the walk back towards the house, I stopped and got this photo of Cloud. She’s due to Kid the first or second week of April. She is just such a lover and wonderful goat. We ADORE her!
I walked over to put the chickens in for the night and the Sheep followed me on one side of the fence and the goats on the other. Blaze (one of the sheep) now follows me around hollering begging for treats. I just love her! Sinjin is still a little shy but follows me around too and will take treats from my hand. I really like having sheep.
So blurry, I couldn’t get the girls to be still enough. They wanted their chow NOW.
While I was putting away the chickens, the sheep came around to another angle hoping to get a treat. I have to be very very careful to keep the chicken food away from the goats and sheep. Sinjin is right there staring at me begging. That is her adorable baby girl in the front.
The bucklings followed me too!
During the day, I leave the bucklings with the sheep. The sheep tolerate them well and it allows the bucklings to get extra alfalfa pellets. The herd would never allow them to eat as much as they want.
Sinjin in the front, Blaze and daughter in the back.
It’s getting dark and on the walk back to the house I snapped this photo of Dolly (in the front) and Charlie (back).
