Your teacher gave me some of your questions. I hope that one day you will start writing the questions for me instead of your teacher. If you do, I'll take a photo of the best questions with the best handwriting and post them here for everyone to see!
Question 1: How big of a bite do goats take?
Answer: Not very big!
|See the shade around the light? See how we hang the light so it doesn't touch anything that might catch fire?|
Answer: It depends on the type of cow. Our new steer, Remi, will probably weigh about 900 pounds when he is full grown. Our old steer dinner weighed 798 pounds. Our new cow, Echo, will probably weigh about 450 pounds. We don't usually talk about the weight of a cow (female cow) we explain 'how big' they are by measuring how tall they are. Echo will probably not be any taller than 40" tall. We don't measure them from the ground to their head, we measure them from the ground to the top of their shoulder.

|This chick has pretty feathers. I hope she is a hen, but I can't tell yet.|
|Here are the two that look very much alike. They are hard to tell apart, aren't they?|
|I sent your teacher some eggs. Can you guess which eggs belong to chickens? Can you guess which eggs belong to ducks? Can you guess which eggs belong to turkeys?|
|Here is another look at the eggs side by side.|
|Did you make a good guess?|
|Sometimes I find her in the nesting boxes where the chickens lay their eggs.|
|Sometimes I find her in one of the feeders in a stall. She likes the middle stall the best.|
|Sometimes we see her in her cat house. She likes to watch what is going on in the barn. In the winter she likes to be in the bottom. In the summer she likes to sit on top and act like she is the queen of the barn!|
I may post a few times while you are on Christmas break. I will post Mountain Monday so you can see what the mountains look like every week even when you aren't in school.
