Back to the farm

Well now that my trip to Ireland has finally been documented in its entirety, I will get back to life on the farm..
This was the sky this morning which seems to be staying darker a lot later...

It doesn't take long before the sun starts to peak through the clouds and the world is once again awake and goats and chickens want to be fed..This is Tramp, by the way...he is one of our 2 remaining goats that we rescued from the petting zoo in Victoria..we originally had 6 but the other 4 have gone to that big meadow in the sky...

The chickens LOVE to get out of the hen yard a few times a day but only under supervision since the hawks and ravens like to eat them for lunch..they spend hours scratching around looking for bugs and nibbling on grass...I'm always amazed at how good their eyesight is! They can pick out the tiniest black bug from a patch of black soil...
