We had a beautiful wonderful weather day! There was more snow melting and more mud, but it still isn’t too bad.
Other than the warm weather, one sure sign of spring is the swarms of geese that I saw flying north today.
Another is my peacock dancing for the ladies. The girls just don’t look too impressed.
Sadly, it’s not unusual for spring to see goose injuries. Their breeding is brutal. The ganders fight. They grab the girls, and sometimes, we get gimpy girls. Sadly, instead of getting better, Gabby got worse. She really can’t walk, but she can get around using her wings. Now, she’s rooming with my two little bucks in the Love Shack.
I think the motor is going out on my 55-300 mm lens. I had a horrible time focusing on my pretty Christmas cactus blossom. My eyes are too bad to use manual focus. Guess I need to send the lens in to be fixed. Bummer. At least I still have a lens that works while that one is gone. I have no idea when I’ll get around to taking it in with all the kids due.
We’ve started kidding, and I’ll share tomorrow. If you can’t wait, there are more frequent updates on our farm Facebook Page.
