The Big Day

The boys have been itchin' to get in with the big kids for weeks now. Yesterday was a perfect day to move them over.  Once they got a few punches by the 'wimmens' (who really didn't think some teenage boys were just what they'd been waiting for all their lives ;-) everyone got along just fine.





"Wow, look at all the junk they've got sitting around!"


I never really think about how short Maisie is until I see her next to someone else.  She looks like she's giving them some inside information :-). Baaxter is standing next to me in these pictures.  He wasn't really afraid to be out there I don't think. I believe he just felt more comfortable standing with his mom, watching everything for awhile.


I put them back in the "nursery" over night, but turned them back out with the main flock this morning.  They love exploring in the creek and seem happy to hang out with Hank.  


Chocula had a big time racing around with them yesterday (he loves to play) and looks like he'd sure love to be down there with the new kids this morning too....if that dastardly dog wasn't hanging around!

That Hank is just like a big, white security blanket with paws! I love the last picture. You can almost see the wheels turning.

Good boy Hank, making sure there is nothing lurking in the tall grass to harm the boys. Great shot of Hank laying down with the sheep.

My goodness, the little boys are big boys already! How did that happen?
Hank is such a good dog!

Teenage boys -- just what I've always been looking for! Yikes! Not since I was a teenager...............

I'm glad the girls told them "Um. NO!" and they believed it.

Awwww, so cute that Baaxter stayed by Mom's side! What great photos and story. Thank you for sharing your paradise with us - wish one day I could visit IRL!

Great photos, as usual.

The fall mornings are providing you some great light - and you've taken advantage nicely. Those adventurous boys will keep things active around the Farm :-) Hugs to Hank and Tilly!

Priceless! Those 'wimmens' rule the roost.
