We are enjoying our newest member of the family. We have had our halflinger colt, Luke, for over a week now and he has settled in quickly. He has gotten used to having chickens, guineas, piggies, cats, dogs and baby goats all around his feet. He is so calm and sweet tempered. We just love him. Tim trimmed his feet yesterday afternoon for the first time. He stood really well, considering it was his first go at it. I can't wait to hitch him up and have him pull us around. Of course, that will be quite a while yet.
The buck is out and the girls have all settled down. I think everyone got bred and we should be having babies in March. This is much later than usual for us but I hope it is warmer than January. Squeak and Grunt are growing like little pigs should. They go out to pasture with all the goats and it is so funny to see them on the hill, rooting around. Tim has hauled all kinds of manure on the garden and sometime this week, he will turn it over with the plows to open the ground for winter.
I hope you are all enjoying this beautiful time of year where ever you are. And I hope the sun is shining for you too.
