More interviews

It was rainy day today so most of the animals were hanging out near the barn.  I thought it might be a good time to get a few more interviews.  Unfortunately, both interviewees were a bit reluctant to speak into the flashlight.  I think they were onto me.

First let me tell you about Foggy.

I adopted him from a friend of a friend who had to part with her chickens because her new dog wouldn't leave them alone.  I have no idea how old he is but I think he's way up there.  Maybe someone can tell me by looking at his spurs.  They're so long but he never uses them.  I don't think Foggy would hurt a fly.
As you can see from his interview he may be a man of few words but he's a friendly fellow.

These are a few of his girls.

Another reason I think Foggy is quite old is I don't think I've ever seen him, umm, how do I say this, service the girls.  He does hang close to them and protect them though.  I have 3 roosters and all of them are gentlemen but Foggy is the most social of all of them.

Many of you remember my tales of Darla suffering through her abscess miseries.  Many tears were shed over this sweet little girl and she was well worth our investment in her.  Now she's a healthy doe, pregnant and due to kid in mid March.  She has developed an udder early for a first time mama and I have high hopes for her as a milker.  Usually she's quite the talker.   I don't know if it was the camera or what but she was a little shy for her interview. 

I can't wait to meet Darla's kids.


  1. So glad to hear that Darla is still doing well. I think I started following your blog right in the middle of her abscess issues. Can't wait to see the little Darla(s).

    You're such a silly mama. At least neither of them tried to eat the flashlight...and I'm SO glad Darla's doing better!
