Friday Fun – Goats, Puppies and Turkeys, Oh My!
Yes, we finally have some hoofed animals on the farm! Steve from Tully Brook Farm delivered our ungulate friends today using their new, outrigged Goat Dynasty Truck. The arrival of Judy (nanny, ~ 5 years old), Patty (mom, ~ 1.5 years old) and Denise (a female kid) made our kids spring out of bed and forget about food until lunch time (I can’t remember the last time that happened!). I hope the goats weren’t too overwhelmed by the eager children. More pictures of the goats to follow…..
In a few weeks we are also getting a puppy from Tully Brook Farm. A black lab named Maggie. The kids got to visit her today along with her 8 littermates. I’m not sure who caused more of a ruckus – them or us 🙂
And then there was the family of turkeys that visited us. At least 10 babies – it was hard to count them because they wouldn’t stop moving. Wow, turkeys are really big birds!
