I’m not finished with the Idaho trip blog posts and the Oregon trip starts tomorrow, but I have to sort and edit a lot of photos and this feels easier—to just use random photos that I want to share anyway.
These are the BFL-x triplets and I tried weaning once. Six days of separation was not enough.
I was afraid of that but when I left for the Idaho trip I put all the “dry” ewes back with the flock. That didn’t work.
Speaking of Idaho—when I got back the friendly sheep seemed to have missed me. This is Addy, the bottle baby from this spring, and Vixen who is starting to be more friendly.
Of course there is Jade, who always wants to be in the petting zone.
Morning view of the goats. Sisters stay together.
This is in the chicken house. Do you see the rat tail? There were three there moments before I took the photo. I’m still on a rat vendetta. I have a new trap and caught four in it yesterday. That will have to be another story.
I took this yesterday morning. Those are Western Kingbirds. I love watching them fly around the sheep or the tractor when I’m mowing to catch the insects that are stirred up.
This is part of what I was trying to work through this morning in order to clean the desk before leaving tomorrow.
