Life around here has definitely been increasing. In the last few months we have added 5 new chickens, a kitten, a livestock guardian dog and a foal. 😳
Starting in the order we got them, we welcomed our LGD Zoey. She was 3 months old when we got her and is growing a lot! She is super soft and cuddly. She is getting much better with the chickens and we haven’t had any major chicken injuries lately.
The next introduction would be our new foal Nadira Rose. We bought her mom Lucky last September from an amish farm. We had been trying to plump Lucky up since she was malnourished and since the weight seemed to go mainly to her middle we were under the impression she had a bad case of worms. Turns out she was pregnant. Luckily our horse is on the older side and it’s possible she gave birth before because she delivered a beautiful little foal all on her own without us knowing or helping. Nadira was born May 22nd and is a little ornery spitfire. She seems to be pretty attached to my 5 year old Marissa which works out great because she just can’t wait to ride her (she has a few years to wait 😂).
Next up are the 5 baby chicks we bought from a farm down the road. Unlike the ones we bought at tractor supply we got these chicks the same day that they hatched and it was unknown if they are male or female. They have really started growing now and we believe one of them is male. I said I would never have a rooster BUT this chicken has to be the sweetest chicken ever. He just sits and lets me hold him and pet him. All of them are really sweet actually and want to be cuddled. Out of all my birds these 5 must be my favorite especially this crazy one we are calling RooRoo.
Last up to our newest additions is Heyhay our kitten. We went over to a farm down the road and stopped to see about buying some hay. While waiting on the man to come out his wife walked up to the truck asking if we wanted a kitten from the litter their cat had and she handed a cute little gray furball with blue eyes through the window. This little guy fits right in. Tabby loves playing with him and they sleep next to each other. He likes to cuddle and attack feet.
It’s an excited and happy farm around here 😊😍💕
