For the few of you that follow us, you must have noticed we have been missing for a couple of days. Well all kinds of things have been going on here. First off, let us clear up the issue of Ben's health. He is just fine, as you can see. He and Durango are enjoying an afternoon nap.
Next, we have babies at the barn, a ton of babies. Last count was 49. They came to us a Christmas gift, all wrapped in their blanky. They must be kept warm and fed and watered all the time just like a regular baby. They have a nice red heat lamp and are safely parked in the double insulated tackroom, covered with their blanket.
Oh, in case I forgot to mention it, they are baby chickens, chicks. We call them the Peeper Gang. They are a noisy rowdy little crowd. You wouldn't think anything that small could make as much noise or eat as much as they do. It is amazing the amount of food they put away.
To top everything off, we have had yet another round of ridiculous rain. The runs to the stalls are gone, all you can see are fences in water. I don't have pics of the real thing, so I put the tsunami one up for you. I think you get the idea. So far the dirt dams and trenches are holding and we are nice and dry in our stalls, but is this keeps up, we will need snorkels to get through the spring!
Until, next time. Happy Trails To You!
