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.
