Critters Around The Farm

One of our little Black Australorp chicks


Today our temperatures are going to be 
hovering around 70F!
I'm going to be spending my day cleaning
out the coop and tidying around the yard.
That is if I can keep my head from exploding.
Time to bring out the Neti Pot.

So while our farm is looking a little sad
these days I thought I'd share some photo's
of some of our furry and not so furry
friends that live and have lived 
on our little farm over
the past year.


Butter Cup



Oliver or Olly for short

 

Olly really wanted to find a way to come and visit the new chicks



Eeyore our Mediterranean Jack 


This big raccoon was hiding in our old barn on the owl perch.
He never killed any chickens but he did steal some eggs.


Phoebe our little Mediterranean Jenny

Lizzy our daredevil cat...Olly's sister


Chelsea...the Shih Tzu farm dog


Percy one of two African gosling's we raised last year
  

This little fellow was sunning himself on the fence


Me as Mother Goose with Percy and Priscilla

Shep our Akbash and Bubba our other Shih Tzu 
are missing from these pictures but there were
just too many to go through and I'm itching
to get outside. 

I really hope you have a wonderful day
and that this weekend you get the 
chance to get outside and
breathe some 
fresh air.

Maura :)

Hi Maura,

The pictures of your animals are precious, thank you for sharing.

It looks like a beautiful & warm weekend is coming our way too. It will be so good to get out and get some fresh air and warm sunshine.

Have a wonderful weekend.

That picture of Olly behind the chicken wire is darling! We have a pair of cats almost identical - Siesta and Soleil. A farm/homestead always needs at least two cats in my humble opinion!

Toodie said...

I enjoyed looking at the animals on your farm. And I'm a little envious of the 70 degree weather. lol It's close to 50 here and we are pretty happy with that as it's been a really cold winter here in middle Tennessee.

I love these pictures! The animals' stances and expressions made me feel like I was looking at a family photo album. They look right at home.

Jeanette said...

OK 70 degrees? I am so jealous!! Love these pictures, especially the third one of Ollie thru the fence. Stunning!

Hello again!
Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog: I have been reading your blog for a while now, there's plenty to enjoy. Such a small farm you have. We should also get us some chicken in the summer. it's so nice to be able to collect their own eggs.
Here we have the cold and windy today. We had -23 for a few days ago, BRR
Have a great time as we heard again

Verde Farm said...

OH Maura--what wonderful pictures. I love the little goslings-so pretty. That is a great picture of the 3 of you. Phoebe and Eeyore are so precious. Of course I love Buttercup too. The kitties and doggy are so sweet. I’m out of town all week so I will see you when I get back.
Hugs, Mini Me

Ann said...

Hi Maura,
I love your animal pictures!! Also, we have two Shih Tzus, Chui and Oliver. I am so in love with the breed...but just 2 weeks ago we adopted a malnourished pregnant Boston Frenchie(Boston Terrier/French Bulldog mix). She is just the sweetest dog, so darn cute.:o)
Animals make me happy!
Fondly,
Ann

It's still too cold outside for me to get some fresh air - next week it's might be 15! I loved meeting all your friends - except the snake (gives me the creeps LOL). I have to say I'm in love with the donkeys, I have a soft spot for donkey's.

Hope your feeling better soon!
