After a couple weeks of schizophrenic weather patterns,
things finally settled down by Sunday...
giving us a breezy and partly sunny day here on the farm.
We are finally almost completely thawed out.
Sunday was a perfect day for....
taking mini horses
for a walk.
(We tried to take the donkeys, but they said "no thank-you"...
and as you know....when donkeys say something, they mean it.
Y.e.s. T.h.e.y. D.o. !)
Amanda danced with turkeys...
walking them back to their enclosure for evening's arrival.
(It keeps them moving if you flap your "wings"!)
We visited with Ginger and MaryAnn...
who are always happy to entertain guests.
(That's MaryAnn saying "hello" in Pig)
Ginger came right out to see us...
We brought the refreshments!
MaryAnn likes her drinks straight from the sprinkling can.
They brought the smiles!
They especially love visits from the dogs.
The temperate weather gave us a chance to clean out chicken coops
and install new watering systems.
I am so excited about these new waterers.
They are from a company called "Cheery Chicks".
The water tank is completely sealed...keeping the water clean and fresh.
When the chickens peck at the little red valves
(which I am happy to say they did)
fresh drops of water are delivered right into their mouths.
I can't tell you how time saving these waterers will be.
They have lids with and without heating elements,
so they will be perfect for the entire year.
Prior to this, I have had to change the chicken waterers several times daily,
because invariably one of the girls would leave her calling card in the waterer.
