Two weeks ago on Saturday a racoon showed up on our deck at 2:30 pm in the afternoon. Definitely not normal racoon activity. Kurt was home and we went out to try to find it but it had disappeared. Later at choretime, Kurt spotted it again and was able to track it down and shoot it. We are so grateful that it did not take any of the chickens.
Now in goat news, Hickory has gone courting. He has moved to another farm to mingle with some pretty does. At that farm they are trying to have fall kids. Usually larger breed goats only go in heat in the fall, but they want to see if he can push them into heat in the spring. Hickory is a very willing participant in a science experiment!
Above is a picture from the milking stand this morning. Before yesterday the fields were pretty clear of snow, and now this. Below is one of the pine trees in the back yard. It's melting fast and it is getting really messy out.
I will conclude with my usual - Until next time, be well friends. I always sincerely mean that but right now even more so.
