Weekday work? Who would have thunk it? And yet we were able to get a little bit done around the farm.
Adam pulled the portable hot tape in closer to the house and set up a small area for the goats and llama to graze. That was the easy part. Harder yet was getting 8 goats onto their leads to be lead out to the grass. 6 out of 8 isn’t bad is it? Outside the paddock they have been in for almost a year, no one wanted to be more than 6″ from the llama. So they had knitted quite a braid in the leash by the time we went past the deck. That’s when the dogs saw them. Now everyone wanted to be under Sampson the llama. And he wanted to be anywhere but where he was. Lots of fun. As you can see we made it out onto the pasture. They happily followed Sampson around eating the grass right out from under them. The trip back was much quicker. Just grabbed Sampson’s lead and ran him back. Everyone else just followed.
Then we moved the remaining bee hive down to Duvall to take advantage of a Locust Tree. Everything went well from Stanwood to Marysville. The someone found a hole. It was just her at the back window for some time. Then she went and found a friend. And then another. By the time we all hit Duvall I was wishing I had my suit on. Setting them up went well and despite the lack of sun there were lots of bees in the air in just a few hours.
Loaded up and ready to go!
A final update, We found out about a duck that needed a new home. And once again we brought him home. Photos are to come but at the moment he needs to get a few more feathers on his neck. Kind of a Turkey look and not that flattering on the duck.
Till later, Have fun!
