A Smartphone Sheep

I took this photo of Abby this afternoon.


It was an overcast day.  It was gloomy and the lighting was awful.
It did nothing for her.


So, I played with it on my phone and got what I was looking for!
Gotta love those damn smart phone;)

Christmas Morning.......a Few Days Later

This was Christmas morning........


Sheep were enjoying a beautiful morning........


Pawlet was being her stubborn self and ignoring me because I would not give her more grain;)


A woodpecker was hanging out with some new suet.


The poinsettia was soaking in sun.


And my beautiful Millie took time to pose for a picture!
It may be a few days late but it's never too late to say ,"Merry Christmas"!

3 Alpacas plus a Sheep

The alpacas have their own house and pasture.


However, little Gilman insists that he prefers to be with the alpacas instead of the sheep and goats.  Gilman is a 2 year old wether, who might be pushing 55 lbs finally. He is small enough to slip in under a gap in the fencing.  


I use to put him back every day but every day he went back under the fence.  The alpacas don't mind him so whatever makes him happy works for me.


Maybe Gilman thinks he is a shalpa........half sheep, half alpaca.....lol;)

Pumpkin recycling on the farm

Now that Thanksgiving has passed and it is officially December, it's time to clear out the collection of pumpkins.


Sweat Pea loves to snack on pumpkins!



Arabelle is a pumpkin pig and does not share well:(


Cole is pretty good about sharing......


Wilmington is one of my favorites and loves to play hugs and scratches but not at pumpkin eating time.


Bennington's big ole' self is laid back.......


.......and always makes sure that every piece is eaten;)


I was explaining to Cole that he had some pumpkin on his face......I think he was annoyed that I was interrupting his pumpkin snacks.
I was lucky to get friends to give me their pumpkins.  Pumpkins are a great natural wormer for the sheep and goats so it's like recycling......might even have a few surprises in the manure pile come spring:)

A New Quilt for Theodore

I have been wanting a new quilt for my bed.
The one I have is over 3 years old and has seen better days.


I found this really nice flannel printed quilt set that included 2 pillow shams.
It was an Eddie Bauer exclusive.
I got a really good price on it.


The colors matched perfectly with my bedroom.


So, I bought the quilt set for me  Theodore......
because the colors matched his colors
and I knew he would look cute playing on it......I wonder what Santa will bring me this year.
