Spring Chores...

This spring (and the ones to follow) we have added a new chore to our list...the shearing of our Angora goats. Luckily for us our neighbor called and they were having trouble with enough juice to power their shearer's tools and wanted to use our electricity (they are off the grid). Well, we piggybacked onto their day of shearing and after she was done at their place she came up to give our boys their haircuts! About 10 minutes later, we had some very naked goats indeed! We had planned on shearing them ourselves but well...as chores grow, time wanes and this was Rick's early birthday present...he had no idea they were getting clipped. When he arrived at home for lunch, he found us in the pen with one naked goat!

Also, every spring we get a new batch of layers...and every year I can't stop exclaiming how cute my peepers are! I have to share these...
