Saturday on the Farm
If you scroll down in the blog to older posts and find Aug 19, you'll see the photos of Luke and Leia, our Anatolian puppies, being held by Gregg. That was just 3 months ago. Look at them now. I think Chet actually has to help Gregg hold Leia up.
These guys are not quite 5 months old. Luke is close to 60 pounds and Leia isn't far behind. They are going to be very big dogs. Luke has a big serious bark already, but only barks when something unusual comes into sight. We really haven't heard Leia bark much, she kind of hangs back and lets Luke scare the intruder away.
Gregg and his friend, Jay, are here from Ohio for a few days and Chet's putting them to work doing some fixin' up around the place.
The chickens are thinking about climbing to new heights while the alpacas just enjoy the grass.
And...we think we have a young rooster. This chicken is starting to get curved tail feathers and a couple of them are shiny and green. We haven't heard any crowing yet, but it won't surprise me when we do.
