Moist Spring Farm Scenes

Here is a photo of Steve with our blooming forsythia, a sure sign of Spring.

We are watching our possible peacock develop.  Here he? is with what we think is a peahen of the same age.  You can see how much more pronounced his? back feathers are.

And here is a side view of him?.  You can see the bright neck coloring and the speckled abdominal feathers as well.  So we think he? is  peacock, but time will tell.  I thought our plan was to sell him?, but now Tom wants to keep him?.  We may see how well two peacocks get along.

We have started rotating our younger sheep and cows.  There is some grass growing, and we can reduce our hay use.  I predict hay is going to be a big deal this year.

So that meant that the cows rotated into the field in front of our barn today.  And so Rory is on the fenceline with our beagle for the first time.

He really didn’t seem to care, but Ryeleigh did.


It was fun to watch.

    The interchange between Rory and Ryeleigh is so funny! I’ve watched them both twice already! Rory is a handsome dude! And I got such a chuckle out of Ryeleigh’s vocal carrying on!

    Did you get lightning this morning? The TV weather dude showed a lot of that flashy stuff in the Seattle area and north-ish of there.

    We got over an inch of rain in the last 24 hours, plus some really gusty winds. The temperature has dropped 15 degrees from the high for the day. It’s down to 46 now.

      I loved watching them. Ryeleigh tries so hard to be tough. We didn’t have lightening here this morning that I know about. I do know the county north of us got some. We had bad winds and one of our trees fell on the road yesterday. I know there’s a fair amount of snow in the mountains.

    I love seeing your posts. That Rory is a delight. Missing the days when I lived on the farm. Lots of work but being close to nature was worth it.
