Can it be that spring is finally here? What a beautiful weekend...just great to be outdoors in the sunshine and see life bursting forth in sprouts and blooms. Of course, it doesn't take long of being outdoors to see the many things that need doing around here after a long, wet winter! We spent much of the weekend cleaning pens, setting up breeding pens, dusting, worming, clipping toenails and de-spurring a few of the boys. Zachary was finally able to procure a lovely female Sebastopol goose for his LONELY gander. He is one happy camper now (both gander and Zachary!) We also acquired a handsome Narragansett tom named Bubba who was getting a bit too aggressive for the family that raised him. We set him up in a pen with a lady Narragansett and it seems Bubba has a new lease on life! Ah, spring....romance is in the air!
