Scenes Around The Farm Today

In  a snit because they were dewormed and dehorned yesterday!

No more bottles!!

Gulp it down double quick before the Jack Russel wants in!!

The smallest of the lot needs to be watched carefully to make sure he gets enough milk in..

Especially with a certain milk lover in the vicinity...

Cules is not wearing long sleeves but it is the middle of winter here!!!

Look,our first ever cow (calve) pats on the farm!!

Some indigenous pedi sheep, a bit bewildered as most of their buddies have just been sold...

Some goat ewes and kids basking in the winter sun..

Some more moms and kids..

A four horned sheep came home with us from last week's auction..

My future milk cow, Dolly..
In a tizz  because the humans actually dehorned her!!
She is picking up weight nicely now.

The mommy pig is about to have babies again..

They tagged me...!
They dehorned and dewormed and TAGGED me!!
