Finally, the day has arrived.
The fancy chickens have begun laying.....the teeniest, tiniest, little eggs.
7 eggs were laid this first day.
Hooray!!! Good work girls.Did I mention that I accompanied Doctor Becky on a Vet call....to check and vaccinate a littler of Welsh Corgi pups? Oh, did I mention that I was thinking I might like a Welsh Corgi pup? No? Well....here is a little girl that almost stole my heart.....and no, I did not bring her home. I practiced great restraint, because I still am not sure what breed I want. Perhaps just a mutt....I would feel great about a rescue dog. But still.....isn't she adorable? How about a closer look... I thought I would give you a glimpse of exercise time at the Fat Farm. As I mentioned before, the Bigs are on a bit of a diet...trying to shed a few pounds that they put on eating that rich grass all summer. Because we are in the midst of a wonderful Indian Summer this week, I have been walking them up to our arena almost daily for a little exercise. The great thing about the arena is the lack of vegetation. So, they can run and kick up their heels with no grass to tempt them. And boy do they kick up their heels. I love the sound of thundering hooves!That is Doctor Becky's roof that you see in this picture. She has a log home, also....a nice walk through the woods from our home.
