Today around the farm

Logan holding Dusty Miller and Sweet Cecily

Orion running to say hi to me.
Nebula with her new haircut. She got confused today and actually let me touch her. Aurora is in the background.
Sweet Pea and her new haircut. Andromeda is in the background. I need to get a better picture of her someday.

Baby bluebirds in our bluebird house.

The chicks today. They grow so fast!

Those bluebirds are sweet! It'll be fun for you and Logan to watch them grow up.

Sheep look so funny without their wool, don't they?! I bet they feel better though.

So what did you decide to do with your deformed beak chick? And your pasture?

BEAUTIFUL animals! Especially that Sweet Pea. "Sweet Pea" must be a popular name...lessee...I have a hen named Sweet Pea, and Joanna has a goat with the same name, and you have a sheep with the same name! How neat.

Sue said...

Looks like all is well......Enjoy!

I'm so impressed with your farm ;). It's hard to believe how much has changed from this time, last year. You were still dreaming of what you now have. Remember? The reality looks like so much more fun ;).

Re: the chicks. They do grow ... fast! Our four week old broilers (which grow about twice as fast as "regular" chickens) are almost as big as our full-grown laying hens ;).

Your Farm animals all look very content. Lucky you with the bluebirds. Haven't seen any so far around here this year.

I love all your animal names. We had a nest of bluebirds under the carport and they must have hatched and flown away. I don't see the parents anymore.

Lots of critters! I love the bluebirds... I think it's neat to catch them rearing their young without any involvement from us.

Everybody's growing!
Poor Logan looks like he's holding rotten eggs instead of cutie chickens. Maybe he's just tired of having his picture taken? My kids get like that..."MMmooooommm, are we done yet???"

Hi Christy! I'm from the Shine yahoo group! I followed your link on a post. Love your blog! Your little animals are so sweet! What fun! Chicks in the mail?! Awesome! See ya on the shine list!

Gayle said...

Seeing you chicks gets me so pumped...our chicks arrive by mail about the 20th. I can't wait. Everyone is looking good at your farm.

Kelly said...

Hey wow! That is a fantastic idea to use a baby play pen for the chicks! Nice going girl! :) Loved the pictures, Orion is growing so fast. Hugs, Kelly

So, did you have fun getting the sheep sheared? Did you guys do it yourselves?
We just had all our sheep, llamas and angora goat sheared on Saturday. I'll post pics soon. It was fun, but tiring. Made for a long day.

But OH! The wool! I can't wait to start playing with it all.
What will you be doing with all your wool?

All your pics were great. I never tire of seeing what's happening over here at Farm Dreams.
