Here on the farm, on one of the few sunny weekend days we had lately. We needed to clean out the kids hutch. There are two ways to go about this; 1) you crawl into the hutch and shovel out the spent hay and manure or 2) just flip it. The latter really saves your back and knees!
This is a picture of Sage; one of our doelings, born on the farm this year. It been a long day for her. She is an hour old. She has a full tummy of milk and it is time for a nap.
There is always work to do on the farm, it is our second full time job. Help with farm chores is always welcome... except when it is from the four footed kind. This is a shot of the kids pen in the milk barn. Peter needed to put down some fresh bedding. He gets lots of "help" wether he wants it or not!
Meet Bruce, one of our bucklings. He was just born to Lois a first freshening dam. He is a big boy and was very hard to deliver. He was 9 pounds 2 ounces.
I think our ducks are from England. When it rains they all stand very stately. With a stiff upper bill they stand. They seem to say, "We are ducks, we stand out in the rain." Being waterfowl, they are waterproof, but the chickens and goats on the other hand feel that they will melt if they get wet!
