The Other Animals

We still have other animals on the farm, in addition to Ryeleigh.  I noticed the other day that the peacock’s feathers are starting to grow in again.  He is hanging in the hay loft nowadays.

Donna, the sheep, was looking at me very intently the other morning.  She is a beautiful animal.

These two hens decided they needed to share a nest box even though there are probably 20 empty ones.

This is my snoopy calendar and its January message.  I thought it fit nicely with the Ryeleigh adventure.

The snow got very close to us the other morning, but we had 33 degree rain instead.

This morning the big white rooster attacked Big Red badly.  It is the second time I have seen this.  And it is probably what happened to Little Man the other day.  So I made the farmer’s decision to put big white rooster on death row and move Little Man and half blind hen out of the nursing home (now death row),  Hopefully they will do well, and we will have a fresh chicken dinner in the near future.  Here are the victims.

And here is the perpetrator.

Ryeleigh’s First Day on the Farm


Here are photos from a decent camera.

Izzy is apprehensive.

Outside she has only made it to the front yard of the farm so far. It is a nasty cold day (33 degree rain with wind this morning- the worst IMHO). But we are watching football by the pellet stove on the couch this afternoon with a beagle pup- life is good!
