Morning Adventures With Grace, Hope, and Faith

Yesterday was another day for firsts...
and this time the donkeys did not lose their minds.

Yesterday, for the first time, the sheep went out to the front pasture with the pigs.

Perhaps it was because the donkeys were almost comatose,
after spending the night time out in the pasture with the horses...
or perhaps it is just because the sheep are no way as scary looking as the pigs.

Whatever the reason, the donkeys took this scene in their stride....
completely unaffected!

The sheep thoroughly enjoyed their added freedom,
but still came running 

when they saw me out in the pasture picking up manure.

I don't delude myself into thinking that they are just happy to see me...

I know they are just hoping for Ritz crackers!

It was fun interacting with them in their new surroundings.
I can't help but believe that enlarging their world is as good for their mental health
as it is for their physical health.

After all, a little adventure helps to make life more fun!

" Good morning, Fred and Ethel!"

My farm buddy, Tyler is back home with his Mommy and Daddy again.
We had a wonderful time together yesterday...so many funny stories that I could tell you.

Perhaps the funniest is how he describes what he saw when we first opened up the chicken
house in the morning.
As he tells the story...
"The king chicken (rooster) jumped on top of the other chicken (hen)
[as Tyler does a little hopping up and down motion]
and squeezed and squeezed until the other chicken pooped himself!"
How he acts this out is even funnier than what he says.
And all of us with chickens know exactly what was happening in this scene.


  1. One does not have to have chickens to know what was happening in that scene. Glad you had a good day with Tyler. Enjoy this beautiful day.

  2. What a wonderful visit. Tyler has grown so tall..he has had a busy summer..lol. Nothing like a visit to the farm to get the basics back into his life before school starts for another year. Been a hot summer for us all.

    Keep well..good to see everyone doing so well.

  3. if one of those roosters jumped me i would poop myself too!

  4. Kids with farm animals are just so darn cute aren't they ? Lovely photos , glad all are getting along well ! It has cooled off nicely here no humidity at all a welcomed break for sure . Thanks for sharing , have a good day !
