All of a sudden, Penny's teeny tiny baby bun bun has become a regular little bunny rabbit...
finding it's way out of the nest to nibble on kale...
and wash it's tiny face, and hop down those steep cinder block steps to play on the ground.
When did all this happen? I had no idea just how fast baby bunnies grow.
this is an awful picture, but I wanted you to see this sweet little mouth and nose. She (or he) has long flat nose. Poppy says she favors a mouse. What in the world can we name her?
Heaven knows I do not need four bunnies, but how can I part with this one? Penny's first. She has lost two.
Here we've been all summer with no babies to raise. Now, going into winter, we have babies...
a gift from our nice neighbors Robert and Kristine. They had thirty three baby guineas hatch recently. Thirty three!! Now eight of them are ours. Aren't they cute?
I found an old piece of tin to add to the small lot behind the chicken house. This will be a windbreak and give the babies a warm corner to huddle in, under the heat lamp.
Oh my, I had rather be outside building cozy little homes for animals, and playhouses, than eat when I am hungry. Poppy says, "do you think that you will ever grow up"? Well no! Why should I?
Happened to look out the kitchen window and thought...
what is that on top of the goat barn? Well, it was Smokey, sound asleep.
I told him to come on inside, the bed is much softer.
Just wanted to mention this same old heavy comforter you see in all the pictures. No matter how pretty the bed is made, I keep this comforter spread out for the animals. Three cats and two dogs leave a lot of hair. :) But, I do get tired of the look.
Hope to be back soon.
