This is the blog for our little farm in Skagit county. Here we have Shetland sheep and Nigerian Dwarf goats. In addition we have donkeys, cattle, pigs, chickens, geese, and peafowl. The blog describes the weekly activities here.
I have been home ill all week. I’m not getting better so I’m starting to get worried. I have fatigue, memory loss, lack of concentration, nausea and muscle aches. This happens to me periodically over the last 5 years- sometimes with sore throat, fever, chills, joint pain, headaches. I’ve been to a couple of health care providers and all of my blood test have been fine. I called one back yesterday (my gynecologist), but she is out until Monday. I scheduled an appointment with a new doctor (since my last 2 moved out of town) but couldn’t get one until December 12th. Hopefully I’ll get better by then!
This morning when I finally dragged myself out to the barn after 11:00 I found these baby bunnies all warm and cozy in their nest with their mother Thelma. I brought them into the house so nothing happens to them in the cold barn and took their photo. There appears to be 4 black kits and 5 white ones. One white one is a runt so may not make it. Thelma is due today as well so i’ll need to drag myself outside again to check on hers.

I have never seen baby bunnies before; very interesting! They kind of look like the pigs on “Jakers” (kids’ show).

They get much cuter when they are about 4 weeks old. Even cuter than lambs, I think anyway.
