Down on Donna’s Farm
I love posting pictures from Donna’s farm so here’s a few new ones. This big boy is Black Sabbath. She has had him for quite a few years. She has two turkey pens set up now but even they are temporary. She is building a big fenced in area that will have a big nice building in it for them. She also has acquired several chickens and she put them in with the turkeys. The male (Black Sabbath) and the female took them in right away like they were the parents. It was really amazing to watch. Of course she has dogs that tend to baby kittens and cats that tend to tiny puppies, so I wasn’t totally surprised. The chickens are black and I don’t guess I’ve ever seen a black chicken. They are kind of cool looking.
These are the chickens. It’s not uncommon to see Black Sabbath up on the roosting pole with them. The pen is situated in a spot that I can see it from where I sit in my house when I’m on the computer so I watch them a lot.
Of course there are always plenty of goats around for entertainment. Donna has sold a lot of the big goats and is gradually changing the herd over to the smaller pygmy goats. They are adorable. You can see in this first picture how much smaller they are than the bigger ones, but then her big goats are much bigger than most normal goats anyway because she feeds them so good.
I took these pictures a couple of days ago and half of the goats were fighting, which I’ve never seen before. I asked her what was going on and she said “someone” out there was in heat so they were fighting. Typical males. lol The little pygmy goat holds his own against the bigger males too. I didn’t capture it but at one point the little guy stood up on his hind legs and went after the bigger one.
This is one of the cats keeping an eye on the place. I used to feel bad every time I walked up there because all of the dogs would start barking. Now I am probably the only person in the world that can walk up without getting barked at, of course, I have to beware of the cat on duty! lol
Well, that’s part of the animals. One of the cats had kittens a couple of days ago and I will try to get some pictures this weekend. They are so cute!
