Can you believe my Hobbes is 10 years old already? Boy time flies... and there was a time I thought he'd never make it past his 3rd birthday...

Silly Lamb Hijinx

Seriously, animals do the silliest things. Here are the latest pics and videos from the winter barn. Squiggy has decided he likes to climb IN the manger to eat. Silly Sheepy.

THis is Squiggy. Apparently he likes to stand in his food. He is standing under Larry's fabulous poop guard. See, the chickens LOVE to roost right there. They don't care where they poop. So we nailed in a plank of wood so the poop will land on the wood, and not in the sheep's food. The chickens also like to roost IN the manger to lay their eggs, so this keeps poop off the eggs too.

Aw! One big happy Sheep family having dinner together.

Try as he may, Lenny can't make it into the manger. You'll just have to eat your hay like everyone else. Stick to head butting the sheep, that's what you are good at Lenny!

This was little Squiggy on the day he was born. Quite a difference from the little fat fuzzball he is today!

You get to hear Laverne making some noises in this video and some moving around, but nothing exciting.

This is the first time I have seen Squiggy jump into the manger, so here is Squiggy's dinner routine, and me laughing at him while he does it. And a bit of Goliath at the beginning...loook at that face!!

Monster Egg

One of our chickens is a genetic freak. I don't know which one, because they are all the same size... but one lays monster eggs. There is no trick photography here. This egg is huge. And every now and then she lays another. They don't fit in a regular egg carton, and have to be placed on top of the egg trays or it'll get smooshed.

February Animal Videos

Here are some videos Larry's dad took (and edited) of the animals on the farm. Boy are our lambs so cute! And the dogs too!
