Friday Around the Farm
We are keeping busy with all that is going on around the farm these days. The three oldest kiddos are gone for two weeks on a music tour with a local college. They will spend this week at the college rehearsing for 6 hours or so a day and then they will start on tour Sunday and travel to churches in Michigan and Indiana. I am soooo much missing them. With three gone of the five the house is so quiet.
I had a batch of 8 angora babies born 5 weeks ago and slowly I have lost all of them. The last one died yesterday. I am not sure of what. In the 7-8 years that I have been breeding angoras I have never had that happen. Of course farm life is never dull and I went out early this morning to feed animals and found a surprise batch of five new angora babies healthy and strong. We won't talk about why they are a surprise, lets just say that one naughty free range male (Moppet) escapes from his rabbit tractor and met up with a naughty free range female (Cole) and we caught them together one morning. I didn't think to much more of it until this morning! So we will try again and see how these five do.
