Lambs Day Out

These Polypay lambs love being in the pasture. The great Pyrenees dogs are happy to have something else to guard. The lambs are for sale and will be ready to go to their homes in Mid June.

Farm Help

When Bob introduced our farm helper to one of the garter snakes, it was not exactly love at first sight. However, they soon got use to each other. Too bad his sister wasn’t here to join in the fun. Maybe next time.  How about it, Irene??
