We were fortunate over the past week to have young Kevin, our current WWOOFER volunteer assisting with the ranch activities and have to thank him for hours sitting with the lifeless newborn calf, for his kindness and compassion when things didn’t go as planned and his fortitude and sense of humour when Shrimp designated his leg as a potty. Kevin has been there to help with the poop scooping, cut wood, build the beginning structures for the pig pen, fix and erect fencing, nurse our new borns, assist with milking Misty Moo our beautiful Jersey cow and generally been a great right hand man for Greg all around our busy ranch.
Yesterday Bella took her first walk in the grass, she sneezed as she inhaled a dandelion, she bucked and gamboled in the Spring sunshine and she investigated everything with her beautiful brown eyes. Bella introduced herself to Charm the golden palomino, she made herself known to the two barn cats who, it has to be said were less than impressed by the new attention grabber. It was after all dinner time !
Life is good, we know just how lucky we are as we look around the ranch, the grass is green, the leaves are just peeping through and blossom decks the branches. Time to go, another busy day ahead of us. Take care, keep safe, M
