Every day when we feed the rams Killarney gets very excited. He has tried to push his head through the fence, climb the fence, and prances over to the door. If he wasn’t so potentially dangerous I would think he is just charming.
I had fifty bales of hay delivered and they were initially stored in the garage. I hope this will hold us over until the plants around here begin to grow and I can let the animals out to graze on their own.
The Commander moved them through the snowy slush and mud to the lofts in the goat and sheep barns. He left 10 bales in the garage to be used for the rams. The rams new building won’t be built until probably May, we have to wait for the snow melt and the ground to thaw until beginning construction.
One of the hens is laying very long and tall eggs, you can see it in the middle. Lucy, our Rhode Island Red lays the darker brown egg on the far right while an average Gold Laced Wyandotte egg is on the left.
We find one long egg every day along with Lucy’s, at least the long egg layer is consistent.
A short video of Alexander, looks like he is getting his legs under him.
