Outstanding

 Which one of these things is different from the others:


That egg is goose size, and we cant seem to find a goose in the hen house.  Today I am going to see if I can locate a hen that is being very careful how she moves!

This is a very old wooden threshing machine that we donated to the local museum.  It was languishing  under a tin roof that was hung off an old rat crap infested shed.  It now has a lovely new home under a great roof. 

The roof became the outside pen area for the chucks and the old rat crap infested shed became the shell
for the all season green house
.

Now were looking at fixing up a hand hewn barn on the place that is in surprisingly good shape.


 I was getting it ready for some goats but that didn't happen.  Now were thinking of trying some Sheep.  We need a couple of good lawn mowers, and I can use some new wool socks.. the back of the barn will get a door cut in it so the pigs can get out of the weather.

If your out in the weather today hope your enjoying it.  It's the first time in a couple of weeks that we have fired up the furnace.  We got so used to the + temperatures, the -10's seem cold..

#Donna: your the second person who wants to turn my barn into a studio. It really is nice inside. Pictures later. Re: Piggies. Old photo, we only have two now: a boar and a female. Hopefully in a month or two we just may have more! Would sure like some of those Red Wattles but can't seem to find any here abouts. Last spring weaners were going for $85!
