Fall approaching. . .

Just a day on the farm.

Beautiful weather and a wide angle lens = Glorious.

Jeremino, the Mini Donkey :)

Our rooster, formerly thought to be a pullet and named
after a Disney princess.  . . Bell, perhaps?

Inside the coop with a Rhode Island Red

In the coop with the guy and the gals;
Notice the goats hanging outside

Our senior (retired) Nubian doe, Claire,
and the resident Boss dog, Henry enjoy a sunset

The doe herd

Some sunset shots from the evening

And so the sun sets on another day on the cuspis



Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, and look well to thy herds. For riches are not for ever: and doth the crown endure to every generation? The hay appeareth, and the tender grass sheweth itself, and herbs of the mountains are gathered. The lambs are for thy clothing, and the goats are the price of the field. And thou shalt have goats' milk enough for thy food, for the food of thy household, and for the maintenance for thy maidens

- Proverbs 27:23-27

"I know of no pursuit in which more real and important services can be rendered to any country than by improving its agriculture, its breed of useful animals, and other branches of a husbandman's cares."

- George Washington
