I was over by the rams yesterday and noticed a lot of activity. It seems as though some birds have developed a relationship with the woolier rams.
They were picking and scratching through the rams’ hair. I think both the rams and birds were happy! There is also another guest in the rams’ quarters: a small deer. We think this little one was born in the pasture, but hasn’t yet grown big enough to jump out. It seems quite content to graze and consort with the rams.
Meanwhile the ladies…are with Bea over by the Martin Tract. Just lazing in the sun and enjoying the cooler weather.
To get this view, I was standing right in the chicken pasture with Kasey at my feet.
Kasey minds the egg-laying birds in between socializing with the farmers.
And even though there are coyotes all around, the chickens just go about their business. Good dog, Kasey!
