I moseyed on over to the Martin tract the other day to see what was happening with the cows, sheep and chickens. The sun was out and the mercury was hitting the mid 50s. A perfect day for animal watching! As you can see, the cows were doing their thing – neck deep in hay.
The desire for a different view prompted this steer to seek higher ground. Here he is atop a huge pile of earth.
I went to check on Kasey and his chickens. He will be out working the fields (with Bea who is out with the sheep) in a week or so.
He’ll probably still be with the chickens (we’ve already had some hungry foxes take a chicken at a separate location…) but in the fields close to Bea.
Some new lambs were brought in from another farm two weeks ago. They are still getting used to their surroundings.
Do you notice one that might not look exactly like the others? Have you ever seen such a face?
This little guy was too much – is he even in the sheep family?! Below is the typical Katahdin look:
In all, we’re waiting for the cold to pass and for the grass to really start growing. Everyone’s itching to be back out feasting on fresh pasture. It is spring after all…
