It has been rather warm in the Northwest recently, but today we woke up to rain. It was a lovely morning and we took a walk around the farm. The sheep were much more open to having their pictures taken.
Wrangler and his girls
Pilot and his girls
Poor Pilot isn’t as handsome as he used to be. He is rather accident prone and has managed to break both of his horns off, in two separate incidents.
Junior seems to have gotten over his frustration and is behaving himself. Isn’t electric fence great!
Here’s a picture of our motley group of chickens.
The two hens are banties and they set eggs from another farm. The babies are an assortment of mixes. No two look alike and I would love to know what they are – any ideas?
This one is my favorite.
Did you know that whippets can herd??? She was having fun chasing them, but then would run for the hills if they turned around 🙂
Our blackberries are almost ready. Hopefully by this weekend there will be a plethora to pick.
Every boy and dog should have a big pile of wood chips to play on! They had a blast running up it and jumping off.
The weather in your area usually mirrors our weather. Don’t you just love a rainy day ? Anyway, your favorite chicken , if that is a tuft of feathers on top of his head ( could not tell ) then I would suspect it has some Silky in it…nice chickens . The bantams are so much fun.
I really enjoy the pictures of the sheep, and I did not know a whippet would try to herd ! My retrievers all show a very healthy respect for my sheep, a respect they do not extend to my poultry. But then, they are BIRD DOGS after all ! Kathy Burnson
Oh I envy you your blackberries! Ours are all finished, such as they were. With so little rain this year, rather than ripen, they just shrivelled up. This makes two years we’ve been berry-less. How I miss them. Is there anything better than a fat juicy blackberry still warm from the sun?
You looked like you have nothing else to do so “Tag, you’re it.” Come on over and see what it’s all about… 🙂
