Morning chores

After attempting to fill the bottomless bellies of each and every farm critter, I check on my very pregnant ewes...no sign of lambs yet...off to have coffee with my goat girls and share a bit of cheek scratching & morning chit chat. The roosters are crowing as I slosh through the mud on my first egg hunt of the day...a trail of soggy, bouncing puppies follows me. There was a down-pour last night, at the crack of down the fields are green and cheery and I can't seem to take my eyes off them. The steer nestles next to his hay bale, soaking up the morning sun...all is well....

the Eggs are now gathered, sorted & washed














the Goat Milk Soap is cut & curing














all 9 pups got their 1st booster shots & deworming















and the shepherdess rests for a spell before the afternoon begins.
