Indian Summer Weekend

We have just had 2 extremely warm sunny days for autumn.


Highs in the 80’s, the warm gusty winds didn’t help cool the house. Had to turn the air on. The winds wrapped the welcome flag tightly around the pole.

The peacocks were perched on the shaded porch railings to escape the heat. (In the background behind the peacock you can see my current work in progress half done...a new milking area and stall for Sarah Beth.)Buffy wanted to see what Mom was up to
Look at the baby belly...she's due to kid in December.
Here's Axle... the proud papa.
Jabber Jaws our lone guinea(who thinks he is a Peacock) was out and about chasing bugs.
Brother and nephew came in from Texas for a brief weekend visit. Thomas(nephew) loves to explore the farm and visit with the animals. I was so happy to show off the wooly boys.


I am pleased to report that Aberdeen has now decided to trust me. No longer wanting to ram the hand that feeds him, he enjoys pets, scratches and attention. Now to work with Kirby...he just won't cooperate. 3 out of 4 tamed to new mom in a little over a week isn't bad really.

I love the picture of 'the boys'. They look very content, and that feeder looks pretty nifty. Is it a PVC pipe?
