Chuck needed a friend because cows, goats, and sheep do better when they are in a herd. A herd is a group of animals that live together. You have probably 'heard' of a 'herd' of deer, or buffalo, or horses.
This is a herd of buffalo on Antelope Island in Utah.
Side Kick, our new animal, is a lamb. He's 5 months old.
|Chuck and Side Kick like to hang out together.|
They keep each other company.
Side Kick is never far away from Chuck.
They are both about the same age.
|Side Kick was scared of us at first.|
He stayed close to Chuck, but ran away from us.
|Yesterday Side Kick decided to have a treat from my hand.|
He decided that since Chuck would come over for a treat,
I must be safe.
It's fun to have a lamb again!
|It's fun to have baby goats, too!|
I let them run around and play in the barn when I'm working.
|They love to lick out the rest of the grain in the feed buckets.|
They are 20 days old today.
|Echo is out on the back pasture during the day.|
There is more grass for her to eat in the back.
She loves to come visit me when I'm feeding the chickens.
It's been a fun week with a new sheep and baby goats running around. It's been nice to have good weather to work outside, too.
Do you have questions? I really like it when you ask questions. I like to know what you're interested in on the farm.
I hope you enjoy the weather this week. I hope you do something kind for someone else every day, too!
