Just Another Day On The Farm




Spoken right from the lips of a 3 year old...."It's a great day today! I got some baby chicks!" It was a great day today. We had sunshine, we had a lil' boy full of energy and he was so happy to have baby chicks once again.



Six lil' peeps! He has started naming them....Chrissy, Jack, and Feathers. I'm sure the other 3 will have names soon.




Off to the barn to feed the new cows. We had depleted our stock over the winter and are starting to purchase again. Tomorrow afternoon we will be working them...fun stuff :(



Meanwhile....A lil' boy has learned to climb really good and is getting to know them from a higher point of view.



He is ever helpful with watering them but beware the hose can quickly turn and someone might just get a little soaked!


One of his favorite lines....Are you kidding me? Yes...he is as onery as he looks!



Now that the work is done time for a little fishing!



I looked up and this is what I saw going on down from me!



Someone had a shadow most of the day!



We caught a lot of fish today. Sloan let me know I was very good at fishing. Well I've been doing it for a LONG time!!!



Who says a boat can't be used to slide on???




Look I think I have a gollywhopper!



Sure enough he did!





Time to go back up to the barn and check on the chicks, get a snack, and wrestle with Papa!

Hope you enjoyed just another day on our farm.


Happy Trails....Ginger

I remember when we would go out to my Dad's and go fishing a his ponds that look like that. It looks like a wonderful day. I bet you had such a fun time and of course, I am envious of your chicks. :) I love the names Sloan has picked out.

It definitely looks like a fun day!
Baby chicks, cows, fishing, wrestling...even I would enjoy that day.
That photo spells Ornery BIG TIME but I'm sure he's so much fun to have around.
