The Best Part Of The Day

After everyone's been "checked in" and the morning chores are done. The sheep start to settle in for their (first) morning nap. In the summer Hank finds a cool, shady spot to take a nap. This time of year he flops down right in the middle of the barn lot. Maisie and Daniel stand next to me, one on each side, wanting a little extra attention...and their faces rubbed. Henri paws my knee cap so I won't forget her back scratches, too. Once my hands are free I grab what's left of my coffee and go sit on the Grahaminator.  And think about staying there all day :-).


Some scratch for the chickens...and the birds.


They all eat together for a bit.


And then the Welsommers head around back to the sheep stalls.


The Americaunas clean up anything remaining and Hickory thinks about taking a nap.

Early mornings are definitely the best part of the day. I love to stand and watch my chickens, too.

You really ARE up with the chickens! Glad you're having a nice day and hope all the storms miss you.
