Around the area - new farm animals
But what fun to be driving along and seeing them up so close.
This not a factory farm where every creature - cow, calf, horse, pig, chicken, goat, the list is endless - is on top of it neighbour and can't lie down or if it does it's in muck, or it's caged and cannot turn around.
It is wonderful to see small farms making a go of it. It's hard to compete, but many still in farming, particularly many younger families appear to be trying "the old fashioned way."
I had a chuckle and went on my way, no dogs in the car to bark and disturb this flock. So much fun to see.
And for those of you who have waited patiently for my sporadic posts, thank you for your kindness. It has been a tough couple of months, but I'm on the mend after a tiny six week old feral kitten decided he did not want to be cuddled, and presented me with needle-sharp teeth and even though it was so small it was enough to lay me low for quite a while. But all is well now. And it's mid summer, and the flowers are blooming, veggies are growing and I am so grateful for all the help I've been given and the kindness from friends, family and health care works. Gratitude feels good!
