Some pictures of the critters

here are some more pictures of the critters. I've been a bit lax in getting them posted. Either been busy or to darn tired to get them posted.

One is Striper the donkey wondering what is going on inside the fence.

Some of the young turkeys looking for food in the pan in their house and then of the Tom outside his house who just loves to strut about.

Just to the left and attached to the Turkey shed I plan on attaching a lean-to for the sheep. For now they can bed down with the Goats which is near by. The big building behind the turkeys is the garage/Barn. I plan on storing hay inside it. excess feed is stored there now. Will post pics of the grain bin I just got put up last week in the near future.

Getting ready for some new critters

Well this afternoon I designed and built a little 4 X 5 box to go onto my small flatbed trailer. enclosed it and built an angle iron door and covered it with expanded metal. It ought to hold a few sheep. Planning on going up to the twin cities next weekend to get a couple Shetland sheep. their names are Brita and Amber. Brita is a white ewe and Amber is a musket ewe lamb. Amber has brown tips and is light grey under neath. They both will make some nice wool to spin with. It will give me something to do in the winter time when it is too darn cold outside to be out. I'm wanting to get some spun up to make socks.

The guiniea eggs that I was trying to hatch didn't, but I tried. I installed a taller roost in the turkey and guinea house and the guineas seem to like it. It is neat to see them all purched on it. Well I got to get a few things done before dark. oh it is almost dark.. later
