Have been full on with two very modern misses. These guests were very serious about getting fully involved in farm chores!
And when they weren’t working with the live animals and watching chickens laying eggs ” Daddy the chickens lay eggs standing up!” They were hanging out playing with the toy farm inside.
It is amazing how fast kids can create whole imaginary worlds with just a few props.
Like all kids they loved playing in the West barn with its great comforting collection of hay. “Hay Heaven!!”
But kids on farms need total supervision so I had to keep my eyes and ears open!
The cows helped me with the observation supervision. Not impressed with the sheer unrelenting loudness of the little humans high excitement levels, they were happy to watch from a distance.
Jude the little Poo Bum Piglet has gone to his new home. Boo and I are feeling a bit sad and anxious. Our John and Ton are relieved.
With my guests gone back to the city and my little pig departed, the world is suddenly filled with the sounds of wind and sleeping dogs. The weather is rough out there. I am glad I am not at sea.
Today is Tuesday – egg packing day.
Closing the gates on the ducks in the barn at night has worked and I am back to collecting between 15 and 17 eggs a day. They still get out of their pen but just muck about inside the barn until I come to let them out. When I do lift the gate they shoot out in a state of high indignation, muttering about untrusting farmers as they rush past me to their little pond.
And the Coop has had a hard muddy few days and the next guests arrive on Thursday so I had better push back the comfy desk chair and get to work while it is still dark. I like to be outside by dawn.
I hope you have a lovely day.
WEATHER: Very windy.
