Moving on to a new chapter...

Our Alpacas had one last meal with our Olde English "Babydoll" sheep...

they enjoyed one last meal before they moved on to their new home. We decided to sell them a few months ago and finally found a home we were happy with. We started this herd 8 years ago with 5 generations present.

My Lily was most concerned as I had a good cry but this is a good thing for all of us.

They were all loaded...

and off they went to begin a new chapter where they are going to be in 4H fairs and have some young girls to enjoy them.

And as we prepare to begin a new chapter as grand parents!!!! Our son Timmy and Sarah will soon be parents and we are thrilled! We are counting the days until the little "marshmallow" will be here! I am already knitting and planning a quilt in honor of our next generation!!!

It started with one!

Finally our chicks from April have begun to lay...

and no sooner than after we got the first one, the Americana's aka Easter Eggers began to lay too! It has been a long wait for them to begin laying. I don't ever remember it taking this long, damn fancy chickens!!

A bunny baby outing!

What a beautiful day it was to get the babies out in the fresh air. They had a snack and then explored their environment. They are 8 weeks old now, it has gone so fast and they are preparing to head off to their new homes.

The little chestnut agouti buck even stood up to get a better look...

This baby is such a sweetheart and has already done her first program at a school! She did so good and was so calm.

Here's a shoot of the fawn who also did the program and did really well too!


Tawny, their mom has been away from them since weaning so it was a day of beauty for her. She got a full clip down, this is before...

taking a break from grooming with her kids. She really enjoyed spending time with them.

and this was after, a groomer I am not! But she is clipped down, cool and comfortable.
