Farm Livin Is The Life For Me

Yesterday morning DD1 needed to go out to our friend, Liz's, farm to check on her animals.
 I went with her so I could get some pictures of some of the animals there.
 I will post some here but there are a TON more on my Flickr.

 We hand raised 2 pea fowl from eggs, Osirus (female) and Blu (male). 
The other male is Octavian and the 2 females are Aurora and Lilley.

Here is DD1 with her bestie goat friend!


This is the newly built goat pen

When we go out and the donkey's saw us the new baby, Electra followed me around like a puppy.
 It was so cute.
Here she is with her mom, Pearl.

 The peafowl have their own enclosure.
 When the roosters are naughty Liz throws them into the peafowl pen.
 That pen is now dubbed "Rooster Jail".

This is Octavian, our opal Peacock. Isn't he beautiful?

 This is DD1's "baby", Osirus. 
 She is very friendly with my daughter and will come and take food from me.
 She is also very nosey! 
 Everything seems to be her business!

 Here is Osirus taking cat food from me. She LOVES cat food.

I did work on some quilty things and have done some new swaps so will show more of that later.
 I hope everyone is having a great weekend.
