Saying Goodbye to Two Old Friends

Leaping Lamb Farm-2013-097-CG-2415

We had a couple of hard losses on the farm this summer. Tom, our 7 year old Heritage Bronze turkey was starting to decline and he finally reached a point where his quality of life just didn’t overcome his problems any longer. He had a good run, at 7 years old!

Sadly, Goose had such a strong bond with Tom, and we think he was brokenhearted. He followed his best buddy to barnyard heaven a week later, at over 30 years of age.

Tom and Goose

We will miss these two irascible characters. Farewell, feathered friends…. may there be nothing but sunny pasture wherever you are!

Breaking In – A Story with Pictures

I arrive at the farm and head out to the garden to catch some of that lovely September morning light.

A September morning in the LLF garden.

I hear a noise… oh, the rams are at the gate, trying to get at the purple grapes. Hi rams!

Hi rams!

Wait a minute…

Wait a minute...

WAIT… WHAT…

Wait...

WHAT.

Ear tags: Left for Ladies!

Not. A. Ram.

So… there may be a lamb or two in January. Stay tuned.
