Second, I decided to call the new puppy "Evie." It seems to fit her. I also already have a nickname for her--"Muppet." My animals always end up with an extra name...or five.
Now I know what they did all day while I was at work!
All weekend has been pretty quiet. Sort of like this:
Friday I also got my second shelter delivered. Here are some before and after photos:
This week I'm going to work on scheduling someone to come out and dig some post holes for me (I really don't want to do them all by hand if I can keep from it) and ordering the fencing. It will be really nice to get it all set up for the horses to use!
My chicks are doing super well, so I went ahead and spent the money on a few bantam chicks. When I checked out I found out they were on sale! I'll have to take a few pictures of them tomorrow and share. One is especially cute--a very tiny all-gray chick with a "hairdo." I have no idea what kind he/she is, but if he/she gets eaten by a hawk I will be especially sad. That's one very cute chick!
I figured out that I do have a couple of black Cochin bantams and one of them is probably a rooster. I also did end up with a Buff Orphington in the first batch. It will be interesting to see which ones thrive the best in this area. I'll be working on the coop soon, along with getting the garage roof done and then the sheep shed and barn will be torn down.
Oh, and of course I've been searching for the right job. I'm excited about a couple of prospects. Keep your fingers crossed for me! And despite the fact that I came home today to a hail/thundersnow storm, things are looking very bright, my friends.
