hide and seek

Photobucket

Josie has moved her sheep to a different location. They used to be by the chicken coop but now they're over by the peacocks. Yes, Josie has a peacock and a pea hen, in addition to horses and other critters. Kids who come along to her antique barns have plenty to keep them busy.

This sheep was very skittery and playing hide and seek with me. If I approached the doorway it would run outside. If I attempted to take a photo from outside, he'd run inside. It was quite a task getting off a shot.

That a great shot - I bet the lighting was difficult. She looks kind of smug about the whole situation.

If you have poultry, you might be interested in USDA's Biosecurity for Birds site. The USDA has just revamped it and it includes all kinds of useful information about bird flu and other bird diseases.

If you have poultry, you should check it out.

Hi Suzanne!
What a joy that you found me and it led me here to you. I am a farm girl through and through. Raised on a farm in southern Michigan and now living on 5 acres in suburbia. I raise chickens and have a small garden, homeschooled my girls and am trying to start a cottage industry. I hope soeday to find an old farmhouse with barns with my husband and retire there. In the meantime, I will be visiting here:>) Thank you for leaving a comment so I came her:>)

Hugs
Kathy

Wow, that barn of Josie's is amazing. I agree with you regarding the way they feel. They almost have a character and a feeling of their own. They don't make barns like that any more.
I love antiques, too. I would love to visit this place!

What a gorgeous blog you have! Thanks so much for visiting me, so I could come over for a visit to you! The sheep are beautiful, and you did a great job capturing this with your camera! I have a terrible time getting decent pictures of my dogs, always on the move...

Have a wonderful Monday!

Angie said...

She's a beauty. I have a thing for sheep. I've always wanted a little lamb to follow me around. Maybe some day...

Love your place here.
