Surviving the Heat

13 Jun

I am trying to pamper everyone to make sure they survive this early horrible heat.

That means I’m giving the chickens some treats of frozen tomatoes from last summer’s garden.

Mr. Peacock is still dancing for the ladies after the barn creates shade for them in the evening.

Notice the hens ignoring him.

Again, I think he’s handsome even if the hens don’t care.

I had to fish Jack and Ivy out of their little tarp hammock because they were overheating in there.

Kind of a shame because they looked awfully cozy snuggled in together.

Joani keeps hiding Glover under (or in) a tree.

I had a little plastic food pan filled with water for the goslings, but they have pretty much outgrown it.

I put out another big kiddie pool, and they are enjoying it.

I swear, I put fresh water in the pools every day.  The goats and llamas spend a lot of time in the shade.

Aurora thinks she’d like to come into the air conditioning

Zinnia likes the new tarp hut.

I also make sure there’s plenty of fresh water everywhere because that is very important.

    Aurora’s photo made me giggle. And all I could think of looking at the goats in the shade was ‘just sleeping in the shade’ to the tune of singing in the rain.

    I loved all these pictures. The goslings in their new pool look really happy. The goats all sprawled out in the barnyard are really a riot! Little Glover tucked into the cavern of the old tree is adorable, and so is Aurora, peeking in the window!
