Today was a pretty average day on the farm. I took Ryan to school, came home, fed the animals, paid bills, blah, blah, blah… This morning, our little Babydoll Southdown ram (about 24″ tall) bucked me. It’s happened before, but today he got me at just the right place and my knee still hurts. That little guy is unpredictable; one minute he is all lovey-dovey, the next he’s charging at me. I’ve been trying to come up with a name for him. Maybe Dr. Jeckyl?
After school, Ryan and I set out to vaccinate the goats. We managed to do 8 of them, the other 2 were impossible to catch. We’ll catch up with them when they least expect it. Afterwards, Ryan went out to the woods to work on his fort. When he returned he informed me that he cut down a 150′ dead tree with his hatchet. His adrenaline was running quite high after his “near-death” experience. Ahhh… life with boys…
Some people were surprised to learn that we have so many animals, so I took some more photos today to share with y’all. Today’s photo is of our crazy rooster. Who says roosters can’t fly? He sure didn’t crawl up the side of that horse trailer! Stay tuned for more photos in the future.
