One Warm Spring Day .....

.... In JANUARY?!?! It was warm enough for shirt sleeves to day And warm enough for kids to keep "losing" their jackets!!! lolHere are the bottle babies. Thinking they are still horribly mistreated to be outside.
One momma sheep and her twins out in the field..
This is Screamer.. He is a cat we have had for over a year now. We had his momma and she disappeared last summer. We call him Screamer because when he was only about 2 months old he would sit outside our back door in the bird bath. When he saw us he would meow really Loud for such a small little feller!! lol He has lots of character and is a good mouser!


The geese still haven't quite figured me out yet!LOL They watch me put out the food and keep their distance and they let the ducks go first because the duck in charge pushed back the first day they were here so they let him control things...
Here they all are eating.............
Little fluffy butts!! lol........

Here is the oldest calf and the newest calf napping. The big one is Sirloin and the little one is Tips... Yep you got it as in Sirloin Tips!!! Lol

We got a few things done like moving the pigs. They needed it a few days ago. But with the holidays had gotten pushed off. It takes about 2-3 hours max to move them depending on where we are moving them too. This time it was just right next to the old place. Kyle is rolling up the wire here and getting ready to pull up stakes. We distract them by putting a little of their grains they get in the new spot and letting them through the fence and then putting it up around them. It has worked well so far.
Investigating things..............In the front of this pic is some of their old pen and then on the far side of the hut is the new stuff for them to eat. Some of it is taller then me and lots of leaves and underbrush. Under all that acorns and roots! Probably with a few grubs and bugs too...

Here they are digging for their treat that is distracting them...
Okay I am done now.. I hope everyone has a good night!!
