Signs of Spring

22 Feb

We saw more record warm weather today.  It’s really looking like spring.  It’s normal to see kids with their maa out in pasture this time of year.

It’s not unusual for the chickens to start laying with the longer days.

I can see the sun set more to the west rather than in the southwest corner of the farm.

These are all pretty normal for this time of year.  But the grass is not supposed to be green.

The magnolia tree is not supposed to be getting ready to bloom.

The goats should not be losing their winter coats.

It makes me nervous for what the coming spring and summer will bring for weather.

I hope you’ll consider joining me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s items at the top of my side bar.

Playing Again

20 Feb

I’ve been playing with the settings on my camera again.  I discovered I can take a picture and have it saved in both RAW and jpeg formats.  That’s nice!  Here’s a couple of my pictures from this beautiful weekend.

I have to say, I really hope that Llenny managed to breed both girls before he became so ill.  I know he bred Odie, and I hope she settled.  I’m not sure about Maybeline.

It would be nice to have a cria from him–a girl if that’s not too much to ask for.

All the Kids

18 Feb

It hit me today that things have been so crazy I don’t think I’ve shown you the Oopsie Kids for a while.  I’m not even sure I’ve told you all of their names.  So here they are!

This is Maisie’s boy, Hercules, all cleaned off and showing off those adorable wattles.

Two of Dolly’s kids, Sidney and Andy, were enjoying playing on mom.

Her third baby, LilyAnn, was looking awfully pleased with basking in the sun.

Ron is in the barnyard (I have a pen for him at night), and he decided to take a nap by Llenny.

Ellie May is no longer getting a supplemental bottle, but she really thinks she should have one.

And there you have all seven of the Oopsie Kids!  They are really getting to that fun age when they like to play and bounce and run all over the place!
