Making Lemonade

We had a lot of ice damage last week, mostly to our pretty pine trees. I carried a few small branches into the barn lot yesterday and they were stripped bare this morning, so I brought over some more.  While I'd rather not have the branches down, at least the sheep can enjoy having a pine tree party :-).




Teefers!  Keebs again ;-).


After the Pine Tree Party, they had a Steal The Hay From The Horses Party.  Everyone seems to have called a truce out there and they now all eat side by side.  Oddly.  Even Hank seems resigned to letting this go on.  I must have missed that barn meeting.  

Someone asked yesterday if Maisie and Hershey were the same size.  That's the two of them on the far left and Chocula is to her right.  So, even though they are her "younger brothers", they are still her "big brothers". 


Speaking of good brothers, look at Chocula and Daniel.  As soon as there's a hint of trouble (Hank coming too close ;-), they are immediately side by side.  This picture was taken just seconds after the one above where they were on separate sides of the hay mob.  They are side by side in the first picture as well.


"We hate Hank."

Silly boys...

Hard to choose a favorite picture:-)! So, the sheepies like the evergreens as much as the goats do. Always something new to learn.:-)

It looks like party time at the farm :) I had no clue they would like pine. Who know?!

Eeeewwww!!! Sounds like chewing on a pine air freshener. Bet they have fresh breath now. Could you check? :-)

Looks like Olympic training has encouraged team work. Maybe the boys want to look like spectators.

I'm glad the sheep like them. We had lots of tree damage here too, but the horses are not interested in pine unfortunately!

I did not know that its okay for them to eat pine needles! Out here, it causes the mamma cows to abort; so they are kept in smaller pastures...


I love the way Hank mills about like an old school professor with his hands clasped behind his back LOL

Poor Hank !

When we get willow branches down from the wind I put them in the horse pens- they strip them down in no time. I could use a few right now, the horses are getting bored and chewing what they shouldn't be. Rascals.
Love those teefers!
