Yesterday morning, the sun was shining when I went to work.

It was brilliant and blinding.  Even though we’re still cool, it was dry and everyone on the farm enjoyed being outside.

I even let Betty Lou and her baby out into the yard for a little while when I got home.

I just couldn’t let them stay out because this morning’s sunrise was nothing like Wednesday morning.

rainy morning drive

The rain makes it hard for everyone to find a nice dry place in the barn when some goats are cranky.

Even though we desperately need the rain, the goats are all hoping we’ll have more of those sunny skies soon.  It’s way more fun to play outside!

A Couple of Fences

First, I want to show you the lovely mourning dove on my front fence.  I’m kind of getting used to seeing him/her there.  I like that.

The other fence I’m sharing is the one by MJ.  He spends most of his time lying in the doorway of the barn.  The fence right there is what separates him from Maxine and Norma Jean.  I’m not happy with Maxine.

While MJ might stare out into the Back Forty and think about how nice it is out there in the summer, Maxine is thinking about (and somewhat trying) joining MJ in the barnyard by coming through my fence.  (And we know what the geese are waiting for, don’t we.)


The ground is too frozen for me to be able to fix it right now.  I’m not sure what I’m going to do about that mess she’s making.  Snooty bovine!

Blue Skies and Warmer Temperatures

It’s hard to believe, but 10*F with calm winds and sunshine can feel absolutely warm after the horrid windy cold days we’ve had.  We were all enjoying the warmer temperatures.

By this weekend, when we’re supposed to be up to the thirties, we’ll be digging out our summer clothes!
