My son and I have been sick, so we have been spending a lot of time looking out the backdoor.
Luckily, we have a lot to look at!
A pair of Canada geese.
They are here most of the time and have even started eating the leftover duck food.
We have had a LOT of rain and the wild ducks are taking advantage of the extra water.
The ‘open’ (not bred) girls have been kicked out of the barn and are complaining to me daily. They liked the cushy life and extra good food the mammas were getting. I keep telling them there are sheep who don’t see green grass for months and they should feel very lucky 🙂
We have a trio of pheasants that are constantly teasing me. I see them all of the time, but as soon as I put a camera up they are gone! I finally got a couple of pictures of them.
Not the best pictures, but still sharable. I love the roosters and all of their colors.
Probably the funnest to see, are the baby nutria! I am not a fan of nutria, but the babies are kind of fun to watch.
I am FINALLY feeling better and my son should be feeling better soon after a trip to the doctor this morning. Just in time for the forecasted snow! I have mixed feelings about the snow, especially with more lambs due soon, but a little bit of snow would be fun.
Glad you are feeling better Shannon. You are right in telling your open ewes that many sheep do not see green grass for months. Mine included. My sheep only dream about the grass your girls are taking for granted. It is beautiful out your backdoor! Hope Theron feels better after a good night’s sleep for you both.
Thanks Shari! I was surprised at how brown your pastures are. We are green almost year round. Theron is feeling much better!
Love the pheasant! So pretty… Kinda wish we had them here. Also, (true confessions) I’ve always wanted to go pheasant hunting !… But never have. Cute baby nutria, strange little animals – I bet they can be a pain to have around. Glorified rodents can’t be a good thing. 😉
Pheasant hunting is a LOT of fun! Lots of action 🙂 Nutria are definitely strange little animals 😉
The pheasants are pretty, but I admit to a brief thought of having one for dinner 😀
Get well soon! I dream of Spring and tall green grass, I envy your sheep their lush pasture.
I’m sure spring can’t get there soon enough for you!
Glad to hear you are feeling better, Shannon. I know you’ll need to be in good shape for more lambing!
