Lots of great happenings lately, but this week the cows
really have it.
We’ll start with Miracle’s birthday. On July 7 she turned
one year old. You may remember this…
But little Miracle has grown up, into this… (and yes, she’s sticking out her tongue, You know how kids can be 😉 )
We also re-homed a lovely herd of 5 cows/steers. Their new owners adore them, particularly their daughter, Bailey.
And we really have to thank all of our supporters for their help in feeding these guys. We just completed a successful Hay Drive which will provide hay for our herd for the next 4 months. Without your support, we could not do what we do.
We have other new farm friends as well
Introducing Truffles. He a is a delightful, neutered, male mini-lop. He is really loving his time with our other three does 😉 but would certainly welcome a forever home. (Truffles is the big guy, canoodling with Chubbs.)
We have also welcomed into our flock Henny & Penny, a pair of super-nice Rhode Island Red chickens
as well as Ginger a tough little Orpington with a darling disposition
And the babies…
Papita was first with her brood of 6. Yes, Papita again. She is five years old and I think has raised at least 6 broods in her lifetime. She shouldn’t even be laying eggs, yet she sneaks off into the brush and emerges 20 days later with some of the toughest chicks I have ever seen. She is a beast of a mama hen.
Of course, the goats have to introduce themselves…
And, not to be outdone Blondie & Butternut co-mothered a batch of seven little puffballs.
Thank you so much for supporting our sanctuary
and helping us to help them.
