I recently found photos of my thoroughbred Power in race mode. . . and winning form.
It is hard to believe that the chilled goof ball in the paddock was not long ago a pumped elite athelete.
This week we farewelled two of our sheep. Although it is not so much goodbye as see you again real soon….and their hearts haven’t left the farm.
Yes we got the farm kill man in to silence the lambs.
Lessons: do not name your lambs, and get generic white lambs, not coloured, aethestically interesting ones that are therefore indivually identifiable.AND do not sketch or do paintings of your sheep.
It was with sadness I learned that one of the departed, was Midnight.
We have four hens who despite my best carpentry efforts refuse to roost inside their house out of the cold, but instead on a gate.
There they are exposed to the elements and any predators that may lurk in the dark. I have gone out after dark and physically moved them several times, but still they prefer the gate.
Chickens are crazy.
Meet Power a five year old off-the-track thoroughbred who recently joined us on the farm.
In humans we say that you need to watch out for the quiet ones; that seems to be true with horses too. Power is a very quiet gentleman yet has demonstrated a curious and playful nature too.
He will come in to the house if you are not watching him.
