We have been busy with social engagements. On Sunday afternoon we went to the birthday party of our friend Jerry. Sunday evening we went to the memorial/potluck for the sister of my longtime friend Jonathan. Here is the tree at the event.
Yesterday we had a farm dinner for our friends Pam and Tommy. And this morning I did a farm tour for my co-worker Jamie.
So now it is time to get some farm chores caught up. I picked up one of our cockerels wondering if they are just feathers or meat. I grabbed this guy, I thought he was 8 pounds, and Tom thinks he will make 5 pounds of meat. So we will start butcher one chicken every 2 weeks or so.
I noticed that one of our old sheep that was not sheared in the spring was starting to shed his fleece and seemed itchy and hot. So I sheared him yesterday. Here is Logan afterwards.
I noticed some barn swallow chicks. The next day there was only one and today none. So I caught them just before they left their nest.
And today we moved the pigs to a larger pasture. They enjoyed the cool water after the move.
