Random Farm Stuff

Clyde says hello!

How could a body not love that sweet donkey face!?!?!

WE are having a hot spell.The weather had cooled off some,we were having 80's but the last couple of days it has been in the 90's.Phooey!Me and The Boy hate the heat!Mother Nature always teases us with the season changes,she gives us a taste of things to come and WHAM back to the heat.Of course 90 is about 15 degrees cooler than what we had this summer.

The pasture was nothing but brown,burnt up stubble all summer.We finally started getting cooler temps and rain and now look at it.Sigh...beautiful.

Yesterday evening while we were doing the chores this guy flew over.

I love these things!Where we uses to live someone had one and flew over our place all the time.You can get kits and build these things.I asked Hubby to build me one but he said no way! I love flying,maybe The Boy gets that from me,he is determined to be a pilot.


We went to one of the bigger towns today to look for something to go on the edges of the tin roof on the goat house.The crazy critters have been in there since they were babies and never climbed on the roof.Now,all of a sudden,they can't stay off of it!Butter Bean nicked his leg this morning,sent The Boy in to a panic.He takes his animal care seriously!It is a nice drive.

We go past the dam.They had all but one gate open!This is wonderful,means we're catching up on the rain we missed this summer!


The Bourbon Reds are growing!They have plenty of room in their tractor,but they are big enough to start going out and foraging.I need to start fencing an area for them soon.I just love the color of these turkeys!


We had great sky yesterday.Don't those clouds look like Fall?I love sky pictures,maybe it goes with that love of flying.

They made a beautiful sunset too.

I have been loathing the heat in CA. 105 and 103 the past two days. I need a break and badly! Your donkey is as cute as usual. :)

Fall arrived last night. The weather man told us that yesterday was our last warm day.

*sigh*

How many Bourbon Reds do you have? We just love our quad.

Joanna,
We have 8 turkeys.We started off with a lot more but lost them to 'possums.It took us forever to get their pen safe.Every time we added more security to it,they would find another way to get them.I am determined though.I love these turkeys and hope to have a breeding flock.

Thank you for visiting my blog and your lovely comment. It certainly has been a lot cooler here than with you - but we have had such a dry summer, hardly any rain for months, and everything is so dry and yellow.

I *love* Clyde. He looks like quite a personality. I really miss my donkeys. Hopefully, someday soon, I'll have a couple sweet faces like Clyde's around again.
