Spring is here, and we are all happy to be outside more. Everything seems to be about preparation this week. Preparing to send the animals out to pasture, preparing the garden for early crops, gathering the needed fencing and feed and equipment. Our ducks got held up in the mail again and only five were living when they arrived. Allie is their caregiver this year, and she is diligently keeping the last two alive. We put our two older groups of cattle together without any excitement, and we have been keeping our eyes on the pastures to see when they will be able to handle the herds.
