Two weeks ago, this was the view out our window:
|Tom turkey struts his stuff for the ladies one early morning.|
Last week, we finally started seeing the beginning of green grass.
Today... holy cow, someone get out the lawn mower! Just be careful, it's awful soft under that green lush!
The same is true for all the animals.... here's a peek at my first batch of layers:

This is one of our two Turkens or Naked Neck Chickens, they are just getting uglier.
|Very shy Turken... wonder why??|
We determined this last week that our Hereford cow was not bred, as we had hoped, so after much deliberation it was decided to send her for beef now. This morning Hubby & I got up early and got her loaded into the trailer and took her in. Don't cry, she was a royal pain in the backside. I even asked the butcher if I could stick around and pull the trigger! (No, I didn't get to... bummer.) Now all I can think about is fresh beef for my nearly empty freezer. Even the rest of the cows seem quieter and more relaxed this afternoon. I believe the whole farm breathed a sigh of relief when dear ol' Abby left the barnyard this morning!
Finally, we are loving our barn!!
We put the front doors on this week. We also built the fourth pen and extended the fencing over to the back of the barn so that the cows now have access to it. Once things dry up a little more, we can start painting! Any guesses to the color? Guess you will just have to stop back by to check it out! ;)
Going out on a limb and linking up to Farm Friend Friday at Verde Farm this week. Check it out!! We love reading other farmer blogs, hope you do too!
