Fall on the Farm

23 Oct

It’s really looking like fall now.  Can you see all the big round bales in my building?

The colors are turning yellow.

I did see one late monarch, but it was not very active on that cool morning.  I’m afraid it’s not going to make the flight south.

I’m still checking my girls because they technically have a couple more weeks they could have a cria, but I’m not holding my breath.

I have about one tree on the farm that turns beautiful colors.

We are also getting lots of beautiful sunsets!

It’s definitely getting close to time for me to hibernate for the winter.

I’m ready for a long winter’s rest.

Moms and Kids

22 Oct

Even though my March babies are getting really big, they are still their moms’ kids.

Penelope likes her food pan too much to use her maa as a pillow.

I love the way goats have such strong family bonds.

A Couple More Classes

21 Oct

I spent my weekend taking two more classes from C&M Acres.

The first was a class on how to use the rigid heddle loom.  It was a lot of fun, and I made a short scarf.

The second class was rug weaving.  I got to enjoy good company, too.  I got to play with more of the cored yarn that I really like!  This time though, I didn’t knit a rug.  I got to use the big loom and some 100% suri alpaca cored yarn.

It did not take Snickers very long to try out my rug.  He approves.

It was a really nice relaxing weekend!
