New additions...

On Saturday, Shawn and I went to an auction to add to our collection of animals to fit the theme : "ol' Shawn Lindula had a farm"...We have 7 ducks - all different types....
Shawn really wanted the mallard pair and we got them...

4 more geese - we are now up to 6! These ones are different with the big bumps on their heads. Our other goose is laying eggs, so we can only hope these ones do as well. Would be fun to have baby geese..... (okay, I know... gosling)


I may take credit for some of the others, but this is all Shawn's doing. He bought Highlanders. Here are the 2 young ones. Will have to get pictures of the other ones on here.....


They are so ugly, they are kind of cute!!!!
More to folllow, but my battery had died and I couldn't get the rest of the pictures. Will have to post again later!

The Highlanders are indeed cute.
Where is the water that these
ducks, geese are in? dk

In the field. We have a lake of sorts with all the snow having melted. Later, they can move back to the pond in the back of our property and Shawn is going to dig it out more later.

I think that's great! Shawn was saying in the Hardee's parking lot that you were only going for two things. He should not have given you a hard time for buying more than one bag of books at that sale awhile back! :)

What are Highlanders? They kind of remind me of my rooster that was so ugly it was cute! I think you need to start setting up field trips with elementary school/day care classes. They would have so much fun out there looking at everything! How fun!

Highlanders are slower growing cattle, longer haired, big horns. They remind me of a yak!

I really do want to have a small farm where we can do tours, etc. That could be my main job and I would love it!!! Some day....
