Yesterday was one of those days when I was lucky enough to be outside
both at sunrise and at sunset.
And let me tell you, both were spectacular!
Sadly, I did not have my camera with me for sunrise.
But yesterday evening....
The sun set with a promise of another beautiful day to come!
As the sun set over the upper chicken houses,
Roy Boy made his way back down to the barn to his perch on top of the lower chicken house
just outside the barn.
I have tried to convince him that this is not the best night time roosting spot.
He's a bit exposed up there.
I had originally tried to have him roost in the barn,
but he's an outdoorsy kind of guy.
Hopefully having the donkeys and horses so close will discourage any owls from
attempting to kidnap Roy Boy!
As the sun sinks in the western sky, the guineas make their way back to the barn.
Here, they expend their last bits of energy, chasing each other,
until that last moment when they simultaneously ascend into the old pine tree.
Here they roost for the night.
By the way, we still have all 15 of the young guineas that graduated from the Birdbrain U.
A statistic that is almost unheard of in the guinea world!!
It has been one week since Moll Flanders' surgery (spaying).
She has recuperated quite nicely and seems to have adopted the barn and greenhouse
as her permanent home.
She is such a cuddly kitty and is getting along well with the rest of the barn cats.
Her first interaction with Sammy was a bit dicey,
but they soon became good friends.
Now, she rubs up against him when he comes into the barn.
We just seem to be very lucky in that all of our animals get along with each other.
I really cannot explain it...
but peace always seems to prevail.
Hope your weekend is a good one.
Are you getting ready for Thanksgiving?
We are....it's one of our favorite holidays here on the farm.
