Sandor took this today. When we first saw this place, there was a hawk on the old dead tree.
The "littles" are on their own now at just over 2 mos. This is a time of danger for them -- no longer in their mother's care, and small enough to be carried off by winged predators. They are a flock on their own and sticking close together in safe places.
Inside the greenhouse today....salad greens, tomato seedlings, spinach, arugula and another group of seeds (in trays). Sandor wants me to say this is 600 sq ft and is made from recycled materials, plus $200 investment. So a bargain, for early greens and to get seeds started. I'm getting excited about Spring planting....soon.
Beau T stood nicely for the farrier. Mr. Gerald gave his honest observations of his condition, age, and did some on-the-spot dental work.
He's used to getting a mani-pedi, at his age, not a senior, but no spring chicken....
"With these two hands..." Mr Gerald, farrier, blacksmith and artist is 75 and in semi-retirement. We're lucky he came out, and I took notes since he's got great tips and contacts. I found out he loves fried green tomatoes and mustard greens, so I'll be making sure we have plenty of both coming up in the garden before his next visit out!
Beau Toby is enjoying the menu, and lots of TLC. His winter coat is coming off, and Mr. Gerald the Farrier comes tomorrow to trim the hooves. We are busy getting his paddock ready and getting to know him better.
Beau T is curious and witnesses lots of drama, like this kitty stand-off on the car yesterday. Zippy (left) and Pixie Jr. (right) ...will they ever accept each other, we wonder?!
