Well, lets see got a new hen called Henny (she came with the name) and she is a lovely black girl who is going broody and so she needed to be moved from her old farm to mine.. very nice girl, nice big large pale brown eggs..
She came to the farm with a new rooster.. Cuddles Rooster disappeared (fox? or ?) not sure.. he still needs a name..
And I am now on the hunt for a big dual purpose rooster, to add to the flock, the birds have all recovered and we have had no issues since we did the treatment, we are still going to do the second round just for safety sake.
The peacocks have settled in so well, they are such lovely birds, calm, steady, sweet, they figured out the farms routines in a day flat and have been a true pleasure to have here.. I have only seen him spread his tail once so far..
I’m still snotty and tired fast but slowly, ever so slowly getting better.. had my second ride on Bruno (Caleb?) , So great parts, some learning parts and a few.. challenges.. (are you sure, you don’t want to run and play with the other horse’s, are you sure we want to go though that gate, are you sure we want to do this?) its all about leadership 🙂
His ability to cue from verbal, leg or bit is outstanding, he needs a soft touch, and has a very gentle mouth..
My maple syrup while a very short run indeed (I am hoping that with this cold weather, I get just a few more days yet) was far lacking what I had hoped, the color and taste is a delight..
