Sunday Farm Photos

A very light snow fell last night. I'll call it tolerable snow because its February. I am not in the mood anymore for intolerable snowfall. What I am ready for is spring and dry ground.

I want my garden decorations surrounded by flowers, not covered in snow.

Everyone enjoying the morning meal as I remind them to eat every blade of hay......times are lean, hay is expensive, and we need not be wasteful:)

I finally got a snapshot of Lil' Benjamin and his mom, both are Black Cotswolds. I had Benjamin wethered as the market for rams is slim and I refused to take him to auction. He would make an EXCELLENT fiber pet.......HINT, HINT. He is really becoming a little sweetie at 8 mos. old.

And then there is little Josiah who likes to wear hay as an accent on his wool. He has finally come around to realizing that chin and chest rubs are a good thing and he does not have to head butt my hand every time I reach out to touch him. I still am in love with his coloring.......

What a face!! I think he knows he is a cutie.......don't you?
Tomorrow is President's Day........an extra day off for teachers.......no complaints from me!
Plenty of stuff to do at home:)

Josiah looks like a spotted gulmoget! Where did he come from?

Those Cotswolds are adorable...maybe someday...

Oh what a bunch of sweethearts! I wish I could pet them all.

Alas, I live in the city, so my "fiber" pets must remain my shedding cats ...

The pics are great (took me 2 tries to get them loaded!) As far as Friday, I had geriatric duty and decided i just needed to be away from You Know Who! Were there many people? Did you find it useful?
