Another beautiful week of weather here. Great for snapping photographs. We have been spending some time this week with the men goats. They are Loving their new pen out in front of the new house. Still hoping this spring we can build them some lounging and tables to climb on, but they are happy for now. And Handsome...
Hank is still a love! He is very friendly and loves attention. He is a talker and likes to chat while you are visiting. He was making little noises while I was snapping and you can see his pretty little white teeth. :0) He is the king of the pen of men. Rightly so...
Alex is for sure the most timid of the men. And I love those big bold eyes.
Not sure what he has rubbed his bottom lip on but he keeps doing it and rubbing that little raw spot. I have tried to ask him... nothing. I have tried to watch and still haven't come up with it. Maybe soon I will catch him in the act and find a way to stop it.
Now you can't see Charles "Chuck" face here but I decided to post this one cuz this dude has one LONG set of horns! Wowser!
Some set of horns huh? Little worn and dings showing battle scars from those domination head banging sessions. But still so very impressive!
Chickens have been doing their job and we have been getting an ok supply of eggs each day. We for sure will be adding more chickens this spring as we have lost so many the last year. Doris has be laying off and on and lately she has become very broody... (she won't get off the nest) Pretty girl isn't she?
And not happy that I opened the coop door to snap a photograph of her. Now we have tried something for a first time....
We gathered up some of Eleanore's eggs since she is the only chicken with a "husband'. And we got a small incubator and have tried to see if we can raise some new chicks ourselves. Well it isn't looking great for them. We have tried to candle them to see how they are doing and can't see anything. Still a little more than a week before time is up.. but not feeling positive right now.
Miss Moxie has been really loving the weather and has been enjoying running and spending time near all the pens.
So in love with that face! She is such a very very sweet little girl. Would bring her in the house to live in a heartbeat. But one Libbie wouldn't stand for it, and two I don't think Moxie would be happy. She has lived out on the farm since she was born and she loves being able to keep watch on all her furry friends on the farm and run and run and run.
Hope you enjoyed this week and got a smile, the babies are all doing great and getting bigger each day. OH... and guess what!!! Remember about 11 months ago we had a fence knocked down the Lady Donkeys spent a night with our Man Black Jack. Wellllllllll looking like one of the Ladies, Bella just happened to be in season that night and is looking like we may have a baby donkey in the next 2-4 weeks!! Oh I am so hoping we are right!!!
