Flashback: Angora goats

For several years we had Angora goats.
I even learned to spin.
I still wear my mohair touques. They are so warm.

Fabienne comes to visit "Jack".

Too cold to ride; not enough snow to drive.

Happy little hen

So we set her nesting box on the window ledge.
And her "friend" seems happy also.

Hen behaviour

This pullet decided to lay her eggs on the window ledge.

Flashback: Arnold Rife (1918-2011)

Arnold was a great horseman and friend.
Always ready to help.
He built our hitch wagon, and helped me find Jack.
RIP Arnold.
