What an “Udderly” Fantastic Week!

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.

Cows for adoption

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.

Donate Hay

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.)

Adopt a rabbit

We have also welcomed into our flock Henny & Penny, a pair of super-nice Rhode Island Red chickens

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.
