I'm pretty pleased with the picture; what do you all think? You can go HERE to read an excerpt.
A flock of about fourteen turkeys was wandering around our barn yesterday, I managed to get a picture of this handsome fellow as I was on my day down the road to meet our new milk cow. A second milk cow. . . Justin has dreams of cheese-making ,... I think we need some pigs.
This is a used cow, unlike Marigold who we raised from a heifer. Silverbell is a Jersey from Yellow Branch, the same small dairy herd as Marigold. She was born six years ago at this time of year when the wild silverbell trees were in bloom.
Silverbell has just been dried up, in anticipation of a blessed event in early July. She and Marigold are curious about each other in a guarded way.At four weeks old, the broiler chicks are at that awkward age -- part fluff and part feathers. It's cool enough at night that they still need their heat lamp.
What a beautiful month April was! There's a slide show of its highlights over at my latest Goodweather Report (a monthly newsletter/blog) if you want to check it out.
