We have woken up to a couple glorious mornings and nothing makes me happier than to open the blinds and see the sun shining!
It makes the sheep happy too!
My goal was to get an updated picture of all the lambs, but they had other things on their mind. These lambs were munching on the blackberry leaves.
This group of lambs was enjoying the grass with Magoo.
This lamb was being a funny guy 🙂
Luckily, I can always count on Maelstrom to pose for me, thanks little buddy. Their horns are really starting to grow. After a bit of work, I did finally get new pictures of all the lambs. They can be seen on our website – www.kenleigh-acres.com
After accomplishing that goal, it was time to go for a little walk and enjoy the morning. Azera was enjoying the grass while her lambs soaked up the warmth from the sunshine.
The chickens were scratching for goodies…
and having their morning dust baths.
My favorite little birds on the farm, the quail, were out and about and in the mood to have their picture taken…doesn’t happen very often.
I said ‘good morning’ to the pair of ducks living on our pond.
The pair of geese that have been hanging out here thought I got a little too close for comfort and off they went.
The boys were doing what they do best this time of year…hanging out.
I’m glad we all enjoyed it while it was here because it is now pouring and supposed to continue for the next couple of days. Hopefully the rain with trigger the next ewe to have her lambs!
Yes what a beautiful day there with all the cute lambs. Gorgeous pictures of the geese and quail. And your grass is really growing!! It is still in winter mode here!
The grass is out of winter mode here – good for the pastures, bad for us because now the lawn needs to be mowed 😉 The pasture they are on in the first picture was eaten down to very little growth a week ago and I was surprised to see that I could put them back on it today. Thank you!
So is all your rain causing this terrible wind for us? It’s crazy-weird here. Great post… love all the various bird shots. 🙂
It was really weird here yesterday afternoon as well…really warm and very windy. Must have been the warm front before the cold front. It is now SNOWING!!!
I need lamb race pictures…heck if you can’t get a good one this year…just put up that postcard making picture from last year…k? Beautiful as always and those hens are amazing. What colored eggs do they lay?
I posted some on my Farm Facebook page, you must have missed them. I will post some here for you 🙂 They lay a light brown egg.
I loved seeing all of your farm animals! I was starting to hum “Oh What a Beautiful Morning” and then you nixed it with the dounpour! Oh well, sunny days are ahead, and good luck with the new lambs!
Sorry for nixing your happy song. Mother Nature showed us what season it really is, it snowed some last night! I want the sunshine back. Thanks!
Beautiful photos. As always.
