Oh my goodness !!! All was quiet down on the ranch, usually, as the gates are unlocked a cacophony of sounds meet us, each trying to outcall the other for breakfast. Destiny whinnies and whickers, Molly Moo, Dolly and Macho collect on the fenceline and a chorus of baaaas and moos are followed bya harmony of goat calls led by Jolene. The Shires, Lady and Quest join in and not to be outdone, Charm joins in with a drum roll by kicking his door. The chickens cluck and the roosters crow, everyone wants to be first....usually. Yesterday all was silent. A cautious peek into the goat pen and there they were, all contentedly sprawled around their pen, legs dangling and tummies spread over the sides of their benches. The chickens were contentedly on their perches, the sheep just chewing their cud and the horses sleeping in their stalls. Everyone was carroted / peanutted / cracked corned out . I'm sure that all the animals were hopefully anticipating another Farm Fest, no such luck, not till next year !!! Greg and I were still in shell shock, everything seemed to be in slow motion, the ranch still seemed to resound with the music laughter and chatter of the day before, it was a great fun day. One post Farm Fest note, the eggs I set to hatch in time for the children to watch have nearly all hatched and 5 little chicks are cheeping and peeping under the heat lamps. Time to go, take care, M Ps......some of the photos are already posted on Harvestfest 2010 page (see Home page) more will follow.
