Just in time for spring!!
Today we picked up some newly processed beef and roseveal. Mom and Peter drove all the way to Goffstown, NH, and since they didn't get lost once, they made it in just 2 hours! After another 2 hour drive back home they surprised the rest of us by arriving home much earlier than we all had anticipated. After all the boxes were brought in ,(thanks to Dad) we were all able to pitch in and help with the inventory and organization process.
In other news........
Patrick's cow Peppy gave birth to her third calf, a cute, friendly, bull named Pwggington, on Christmas Morning. He is doing very well and enjoys visiting with the other cows, napping, as well as eating and growing-now weighing in at around 200 lbs.
The snow is finally melting!!!!!! And we are preparing ourselves for what we call 'mudseason' , otherwise known as spring. We have already spotted some tulips poking up through the ground, and are looking forward to seeing more and more as the weather warms up and more of the snow melts. Since we are on the north side of a hill, we usually have snow on the ground longer than our neighbors.
We received 10 chicks recently and they are growing fast!!!
