Do you know someone with a birthday today? I do!
It's Echo's 3rd birthday today!
She had her first calf when she was a little over 2 years old. She should have her new calf close to the end of the school year. She will be 3 years old when she has her second baby. Animals grow to be adults much faster than people do.
|Cows don't get cake for their birthday.|
Here's a picture of Echo when she was a baby.
|Echo just finished eating a delicious dandelion.|

Did you know that there is a tortoise in California that can predict the weather, too? Her name is Maxine. She came out of her burrow on February 7th at 12:06 pm. Maxine thinks winter is over.
|We plant seeds when we think Spring is close, too.|
I planted some herb seeds a few days ago.
I'll let show you some pictures as they grow.
The goats love to play in the spring. They love to bang their heads together. I'll try to get a video so you can see them playing.
Once in a while one of the goats get hurt when they are playing rough. Clover's leg got hurt this week. She had to spend 2 days resting in a stall by herself until she was strong enough to play outside again.
|No, we don't have any fish right now.|
|This picture is from last year.|
We had fish in the fountain during the summer.

I hope you have a wonderful week of learning and playing and enjoying the nice weather!
