Serenity Farms Critters

I haven't posted many sheep photos this year, have I? Here are a few:






That third photo is of our new registered CVM/Romeldale ram lamb, Graham (the moorit with the blazed face) and his buddy, this years special bottle lamb Gordon (the white Corriedale) They are quite the pair! (Gordon would like to say hello to his special friend, Eva and her grandma)

And how about some other critters from around the farm? We have new chickens (Golden Lace Wyandottes, two hens and a rooster) These were the ugliest chicks but are beautiful as adults...



and we have ducks (Indian Runners). These ducks are constant entertainment, very smart (smarter than chickens, I think) plus are already giving us lovely bluish green eggs that are wonderful for cooking!:



Finally, our ever faithful mouse patrol, Christy the calico cat! She certainly has that fall color thing going, doesn't she?



We also have some new Light Brahma chickens and they are gorgeous and very, very personable. I need to get some pictures of them, too. Maybe when grandson Dylan comes for a visit. They are his chickens ;) I would definately recommend the breed to anyone thinking of trying chickens...at least I say so now. We will see how they are at laying time, how they do through the winter. We have been so pleased with the Wyandottes in the past.

Cary I think those chickens are so pretty! Thanks for the sheep pictures. I think I needed them. Still looking for a job. Anytime you want to sit and talk to me you can. Miss ya.

I just love seeing the sheep. I've been spinning a lot of their fleece lately and it is fun to pop in and see pictures of the sheep roaming the fields.

OK Cary...I will beg, borrow...but I won't steal to get a little yarn or roving from Graham! I'll give you a call and give you the super cool reason behind it :) You have a knack for naming your flock!

Enjoyed the photos, too! Those are pretty runner ducks and Christy is so pretty, too. Have you ever put a picture on your blog of the runner duck's eggs? Thanks for the comments...Wooly Bear has gotten a few huge pumpkins now this fall and I'm breathing a sigh of relief that I didn't let him down. :) Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving as well!
