This weather is shit!
Only if you are of the ilk that needs sun in Spring. I love sun in Spring, but our pasture loves the rain and sun in Spring. I am waist high in grass, waiting for the rain to slow down for a mow.
The animals are fine with this presentation of weather. Not too hot, never hungry. A good place to be as a farm animal.
The chooks have a different story. Though they love the long days and grass and bugs and worms, they are not so fond of the rain.
They come in early when it rains.
I checked on the chicks today. I so love chicks. Four are out and maybe two more. Spotty is still keeping hope alive. She is tending to her hatchlings while sitting on the remaining two eggs. A few gasps of air and chicks start peeping and walking and demanding attention. Amazing how quickly they go from yolk to chook.
Though the weather is shit, I think it’s going to be a great summer. We should have plenty of food. Hay making might be tricky, but we don’t use much hay.
Mr. Little Potato Head has it rough during these times. Jiggy is giving him a little tour of the farm via his mouth. This is what you do when it rains a lot. You find children’s toys, carry them around in your mouth and suddenly everything is going to be okay … if you are a retriever.
