Pine Treats

Autumn sunrises are the best of the year!


Yesterday's fiery sun arose, but offered no heat to our world.
It's cold now... feeling rather wintry.
I am thankful for a barn filled with hay,
as this hay will help to keep our critters warm in the coming months.

Everyone always knows when it's feeding time.
They become a little impatient and quite vocal!



Our wood chipping project is nearing completion.
There is now a fresh layer of pine wood chips covering the horses' dry lot.
The fresh aroma of Christmas trees is a treat while I am out there cleaning up manure!


There is no better treat for the goats than the tree tops.
They love pine needles and will quickly strip these branches bare...
eating every last needle and the bark as well.


They utilize the branches as scratching posts as well...

I enjoy your photos and especially videos of the farm it brings back such wonderful memories of my farm days when I was younger . We had sheep as well, their names were Lucy , Lucky , Jenny was my sheep , Jacko we also had rams as we bred them and Glenny baby , he was the ram of all rams thought highly of him self in the yard lol . Our pine trees here and even the Cedar trees have quite the scent in the colder temps and I love it even the land smells different in the cold . Thanks for sharing , Have a good day !

Cute videos..Love the goats in their winter coats..Love the scent of the pines right now..Looks like the goats need a permanent scratching post.( I'm sure there is probably a lot around to scratch on..) Yes, I think winter is upon us..I guess I'll have to start using my wrinkle everything and very noisy dryer..Have a happy day..
