Friday’s Farm Fotos

September 28, 2012

It’s been a while since I posted, so a few of my Friday Farm Fotos seemed like a good place to start.

We’ve been having trouble with our internet connection, which is one reason (among many) that I haven’t been on here so much.  Yesterday the company finally sent someone to check the pole and line that drops to our house, and worked on it.  The guy said it looked like it had been hit by lightning at some point.  I am hoping they have truly found the problem this time!

Now for the pics!

I took this photo this morning.  I was sitting at the table eating breakfast, and a bunch of guineas and a few chickens were out preening in a patch of sunshine.  They looked like they were enjoying themselves!

Then there was our oldest sheep, Coconut, who lives by the adage, “The grass is always greener on the other side.”

She kind of looks like she’s headless in that picture! I don’t know what was so enticing, considering they have a huge field of unmown grasses and weeds to munch on. It just doesn’t seem like there could possibly be anything different on the other side of that fence, but she seemed to enjoy whatever it was.

Here’s a picture of some of the latest additions to the farm.  A nice friend (Hi Angie!), gave The Farmer some turkey eggs this past summer, and we had 6 eggs hatch in the incubator.  We have 4 wild turkeys, and 2 that are supposed to be Bourbon Reds.

From the looks of this, it would appear we have a tom turkey of each variety! Cool!

The wild turkey has been strutting his stuff for a while, but this morning was the first time I’d seen the Bourbon Red turkey do the same. They are dancing around each other, no doubt trying to decide who’s top of the pecking order!

They seem to be talking the situation over here. . .

I think they look pretty neat with their tails fanned out and wings dropping. Looking all turkey macho!

And that’s it for today!
