Spring has sprung!!




The grass is green and growing, the horses have a bit more pep in their step, the sheep are starting to lamb, the roosters are friskier than ever, fruit trees flowering, and I can enjoy the sunshine. I love spring!!

Here is my first Damara lamb ( fat-tail sheep) of the season, what a cutie...

Funny looking animal arent they, kind of a cross between a goat and a sheep, they shed their wool and need no shearing.

Thought Id share some pictures of my boys new pet Roosters - Dude & Frizzle. Dude is the spunky black one and seems to be the popular one with the ladies..lol
Frizzle is the funny shaggy one, the ladies just arent quite sure about him..





Everyone loves bread time!!

The orange pigface in my garden is looking stunning, I also love the fact that it looks after itself..lol


Have a nice day!
