Brooding On

Open Farm is SATURDAY!!!

Open Farm is just two days away!  I'm hearing from lots of folks that they're planning to attend, so we're hoping to have a good, fun crowd.  If you haven't "liked" the farm on Facebook, then you may have missed out on the news that our new spring chicks have arrived and will be ready for some lovin' on Saturday.  Of course, the goat babies are always up for extra attention.  There's really just so much CUTE here at the farm these days that I'm excited to share it with you all on Saturday. 

Besides visiting all the animals, we'll have a craft area for the kiddos and other fun kid-friendly activities.  And, for the grown-ups, I've got cheese in process even now and plan to have a couple different flavors available for sampling. 


While we are all bustling around getting things spruced up and ready for the big day, I thought this would be a good time to give the herd their spring pedicures so that they can be looking their best.

Here's a pic of Chip (unfamiliar goat name?  The males don't tend to get much blog play, but he really is a sweetie) in our working station.  This blue contraption allows me to securely flip the goats onto their sides for hoof trimmings.  Most of the time a goat becomes naturally calm when held securely on its side (like a chicken when held upside down by the feet), and as you can see here, Chip looks like he's about to fall asleep.  Ahhhh, pedicures are so relaxing!


All trimmed up and ready for spring!
