July 1st,....outside I can see the raindrops tapping on the deck, rippling the pond and all the sheep are hiding in the barn. You can always tell when the weather is less than favourable...the cows disapear into the brush, you can see the sheeps' noses checking the wet stuff and the goats just plainly refuse to go out ! Greg and I, holiday or not, rain snow or sunshine, sick or well, clock on at the barn at around 7.30 am. In all honesty, I can't always claim that it is with great enthusiasm, sometimes we would love to crawl back into bed but we don't need an alarm clock with all those mouths to feed letting us know that ITS TIME ! Last night we had a meeting of The Farm Fest Council to plan this years event which will be on October 2nd. The Council is always a fun group to meet with and last nights get together was no exception. We love the Farm Fest when some of the farms on the Peninsula open their gates to the world, we meet so many people. We get to share the Shire horses, Jolene and her goat family, Annie the sheep and her woolly flock. This year we will be introducing Lamb Chop and Dolly the cow for the first time and hopefully our visitors will get to love them as much as we do. Greg has just been to the Post Office to pick up a new shipment of Turkeys, little bundles of fluff that need so much care, so I guess I'd better go and make sure they are warm dry and fed, it's a long way from New Mexico.Take care.
