Is it a big rock in the pasture?
That's Wellington,our big daddy sheep.
The grass has been growing great in the sheep fence this year.
But despite all that green,lush grass, they still think Virgina creeper and roses taste delicious.
Not to mention any apple leaves that are low enough for a snack.
The lambs are growing so big.
Soon Cricket will be leaving to go to her new home,but not until she is weaned naturally from her mom.
She will leave with our little ram and they will live with a mini donkey,her new mom is going to become a breeder of registered Cotswold's like us,that makes me happy.
Pippin will be staying,I will use her as a breeder in my flock,I think she is perfect.
Our broody barred Cochin has something...
Isn't it cute?
Well there are 30 of them...and until Saturday they had no momma because they are our meat chicks!!!
We brought them home and set them up in the brooder room,momma hen took the opportunity to raise them up,Cochins are such good broodies!!
She still makes room for her original two chicks...
It amazes me how many she can fit under her....last count was 17!!! notice all the little legs peaking out?
Snuggle in little one and enjoy your wonderful momma!
Hope you all had a great weekend!!
