|This is my favorite photo this week.|
Quin is petting River.
She is a sweet, friendly goat-kid because she still gets a bottle every day.
|This is the chicken that is blind in one eye.|
She thinks she is special so she lives in the barn most of the time.
She jumps in the grain bin when I open it to get out grain for Echo and the milk goats!
|This week we were able to get some free tomato seedlings, and buy a few other seedlings.|
We replanted them in yogurt cups and they are under special grow lights until they are big enough to put outside in the garden.
|Wow! That's a lot of milk in the refrigerator!|
This is what happens when the cow gives 4-5 gallons of milk a day.
If she gives 4 gallons every day for a week, how much milk do we get each week?
|This is a picture of my Mother's Day present.|
My children got me a new fountain for the front flower bed.
I teach guitar during the week and I love to hear the fountain going while I'm teaching.
I sit right near the window that's closest to the fountain.
I even put some goldfish in the fountain!
|He's so cute!|
He has a halter on, and he has a blue and green lead rope.
|Echo is a wonderful cow.|
My friend called her a 'fairy tale cow' because
she does things that most other cows won't do.
She lets the baby goats have a snack!
|The turkey hen didn't want to get off her nest, even when her eggs didn't hatch.|
So I put a bunch of chicken eggs under her.
We'll see if she can hatch out chicken eggs!
She started sitting on them last Saturday.
They should hatch in 21 days.
|Do you see the tape measure around Misty?|
That's how we 'weigh' the goats.
But Misty and Annie are too big for the weight tape!
|These are the two places we measure on the goat.|
|These are Misty's measurements.|
|This is about how much Misty weighs.|
|These are Annie's measurements.|
|This is about how much Annie weighs.|
|One of the best things about living on a farm is that children love to visit.|
Here are my grandsons heading out to the barn to do the chores with Papa one morning.
Sometimes they come early in the morning, or stay overnight.
They love to help with the chores.
Their favorite chore is finding eggs.
