Spring is now in full swing! Just as quickly as the animals can graze a pasture, it grows right back up behind them with even more variety than before. We are receiving the perfect combination of rain and sunshine to keep the fields lush and fertile.
The chickens are out on the grass as well, with their guardians Sierra and Bo, our two Great Pyrenees guard dogs. The abundance of eggs makes it hard to believe that two months ago, the hens weren't laying hardly anything.
We now have two new pets as well. Muffins is a cat who hopped into the truck once and rode with us to the farm one morning, and Bella, a dog who was supposed to guard our ducks, but decided she liked home life better.
This week, Dad and Mom went on a cruise to celebrate their thirtieth anniversary, and Harrison and Sheridan went off to visit our married sister. So Elliott, Oliver, and Sullivan were left to take care of the farm. Fortunately, the week passed without any major difficulties.
We're making plans for this summer. Hopefully we don't have another drought this year!
