My favorite time of year

It’s Spring Fever. That is the name of what it is. And when you’ve got it, you want - Oh, you don’t know quite what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so.

I guess I can say it is official. My favorite time of year has begun! We had our first calf! Her name is Bunny. Isn’t she a beauty?!

We’ve had our first foal.

And remember the darling little chicks we brought home a few weeks ago. They are growing! Here is Pearl.

And this is War Paint.

And this is Chicky MoMo.

This one was unnamed, but after capturing this shot, I think I must call her Psycho Hen. Or something like that. Do you have any ideas?

“Are you talking to me? Are YOU talking to ME?!"

The Girls came over during the weekend, and as usual we had so much fun! Here is the Mini Pony circus. Tires to jump in, a ramp to jump up and down and all sorts of Pony shenanigans were had here!

We are rebuilding and repairing the old chicken coop here at the barnyard. The Girls were really excited to do some painting. Luckily I had some old paint in the garage. I gave them the yellow, and they picked the red. It is an interesting color combination...

It’s a good thing the chickens haven’t seen any popular horror films!

At least Psycho Hen should feel right at home here.

One last fun thing from the weekend - I taught my Gidget buddy to jump up into my arms! Little Gidge is becoming quite a good dog. She is a pup I kept out of the Buddy x Kelsey litter I had last summer.

She took a snooze in the truck and I took this photo with my big mitt to show her full-grown size.

She’s a real cutie, but don’t let her fool you! She is a great working dog and is getting better and better everyday!

Her mother, Kelsey has the April Fool’s Day litter we currently are taking names down for a waiting list. Check them out!

And one last picture of Jacques, Pierre and Chief.

Chief is the father to the same litter, mentioned above.

Pierre is the future boyfriend for Psycho Hen. Good luck Pierre!
