around here this evening

Cuckoo Marans Early and LouBlue

All 4 of our Bourbon Red turkeys in the same photo - a first.

MIL's large garden

moving to the right, our RV down from the garden and pasture

We live in the Blue Ridge Mountains of the Appalachians but my inexpensive camera doesn't always pick up the blue layers that surround us.

Cahoot, a Nigerian Dwarf Dairy buckling

and his wethered buddy, SugarPop

Gypsy and Clara

June delivered twins 10 days ago but she is still big around. She's like me, stays a little too focused on food. Aren't her blue eyes pretty?

Her little buckling, Sundance, has blue eyes too. Her daughter, SweetPea, on left.

I love the pictures. I do see the Blue Ridge. It must be wonderful to have that beautiful scenery everyday!

The animals are looking good. I also have June's desired for focusing on food. LOL..
Have a great day.

It's happening again Joanna... every time I see your photos I get the urge to yodel!

Love, love, love the pictures so much. I would never have known you didn't shoot them with a state of the art camera. Your resolution is outstanding!

You've got a piece of Heaven, Joanna, and your critters make it perfect!!

Wow, that's some steep slope...with all the rain we've been having, I'm surprised the garden isn't under your RV.

Is Sweet Pea recovering ok?

Christy said...

It is so beautiful there! Will Cahoot get to breed all the girls or does Milk Dud get some? He is going to have some beautiful babies.

I hope SweetPea is still doing well. Did you find out anything about the blob of stuff? Love the pictures of Cahoot. Gorgeous!

In the second picture..the little white goat has a gleam in his eye and devilishness on his mind as he's headed for the turkey..looks like he wants to have fun
