I hope you had a nice vacation. I was out of town for Fall Break.
When we go out of town we have someone come take care of all the animals. It's a lot of work for one person to do by themselves. This time I was gone, but Matt was home to take care of the farm. He is used to the work so he did a great job and all the animals were well taken care of.
|These bucks (daddy goats) are healthy and strong!|
It's fall and they love to get dirty and smelly.
We don't give them a bath because it's not warm enough for them to dry off quickly.
|Look how big the baby turkeys have gotten! |
Their wings have gotten so strong that they can fly over the stall door,
even though I cut their wing feathers.
Thank you for sending me questions. I like to answer questions about our farm and many of you had good questions.
|We have one sheep, his name is Stew.|
|Sometimes Stew sneaks into the barn and hides.|
He isn't very good at hiding, is he?
He isn't like most sheep, he's very friendly and loves to get attention.
|No, our cows don't give milk.|
Remi will never give milk because he is a boy cow, that's called a steer.
Echo will give milk when she has a calf (a baby cow) in March.
|No, we don't have a horse. Our neighbor has a horse.|
Horses are very expensive and they eat a lot of food.
I will take a picture of the neighbor's horse the next time I see her out grazing.
Have a great week and enjoy the beautiful fall weather. This is my favorite time of the year!
