Mud on my foot

Peghorn (in the header) has mud on his feet from being out in the field searching for forgotton corn too – he is my oldest rooster. He is Old old. He is a loner. He had a tough summer as the oldest rooster –… Continue Reading “Mud on my foot”

Tane goes for a walk

A LONG walk. He is convinced, poor deluded fella, that there simply must be a few kernels of corn left for him way out there in the field. But alas the harvesters nowadays leave nothing at all behind.  And after the tiller has been… Continue Reading “Tane goes for a walk”

Sheila as a horse

I lay on Sheila (my old Hereford pig)  as she walked the field in the sun yesterday. She was  wandering through the pasture, grazing, but she is so tall, up to my hip that it was easy for me to just slide my body over hers… Continue Reading “Sheila as a horse”

Go On, Laugh Out Loud

You will get a laugh out of this lot.  A chip off the old block! I finally took Geraldine up to the loft to bond with Mrs Flowers. I checked on them multiple times in the afternoon but other than Geraldine calling out for me,… Continue Reading “Go On, Laugh Out Loud”

Thank you

For yesterday … You and your angels are alive and well I think! Last night – At Last – Mr Flowers found the barn and slept in there all night. So we all slept.  He is a noisy bird that one. Tui and Pania  are both sitting… Continue Reading “Thank you”

Tick tack

When Mr Flowers has his tail up at full power he does this funny thing. Imagine the tail spread out  as an enormous fan, maybe 150 to 200 feathers ,   now count in ten feathers from the right and imagine the next four feathers… Continue Reading “Tick tack”
