Hey! Hope it is warming up a little where you are. It was supposed to be warmer here today, but then it rained, of course. I hope it is all cleared off by Sunday. Speaking of Sunday, what are your plans for game day? Which team are you rutting for? It’s going to be a good game this year. Well, back to today.
Last Saturday was a really nice day, so I got out that morning after moving chickens, and took several pictures. I got some of all the animals, except the goats. Here they are!
This is one of our pure Devon heifers. I’m so glad these cows are docile (as is our whole herd, for the most part), it makes being around them so much easier. I love their deep red color, especially in the spring with the vibrant green grasses. Everything is better in spring! I also really like this cows horns (again, thankful they are docile).
As you can tell, not all our cows are full devon, but we are heading in that direction. This light colored calf, it’s mother (a show cow of mine), and “grandmother” are all a very light color. Which not only makes them beautiful, but easy to spot in the herd.
This is one of our adorable little lambs. The baby sheep, as you can see, are pretty good at sticking to their mother’s side. All of our baby sheep are red like this because of their dad, Redman. They are our little splash of color in the sheep herd.
This is Ginger, our lead sheep, thus the bell. She is a sweetie, until you pet between her horns. Then she tries to headbutt you. I wanted to get a picture of her because I’ve always loved her looks. She is also the only sheep we have with horns.
This is Reba, the horse, also the attention hog. I let them into water, and it turned out they are very hard to get pictures of. But finally they stood still and I caught a few good ones.
And here is Mae, the mule. I took both their pictures at separate times, but I have no idea what had them looking the same way. There was nothing behind me that I could see. But hey, it made for good pictures, so I’ll take it.
Here are some of our pigs lounging on the hill in the sunlight. I’m just glad they where out to were I could get a picture. And there they lay. So it turned out nicely!
One of my prettiest chickens here. I love the Americana breed because they come in so many different colors. She looks brown in this picture, but she is more silver in real life. I knew I had to get a picture of her when I got pictures of them. And after stalking her for a while, I got one.
Her is my Maran rooster, Dylan. The sunlight hit his colorful feathers just right to make them stand out more than normal. The Americana and Maran are the prettiest of my chickens. I wish Dylan would let me catch him so that I could pet him, but nope. At least I got a of picture of him.
Well, that’s all for today! Hope you enjoyed! See you next week!
