HOPING A HAPPY MOTHERS DAY WAS
ENJOYED BY ALL AND THAT UP -
COMING FATHERS DAY WILL BE AS
WELL. THIS LITTLE FAMILY OF
CANADIAN GEESE WERE OUT FOR A
STROLL EARLY ON MOTHERS DAY
DON'T WORRY - THEY NEVER WENT AS
FAR AS THE ROAD. THEY WENT DOWN
ON THE LAWN AND "DUCKED" UNDER
THE FENCE AND HEADED FOR THE
LARGE PONDS OF WATER THAT THE
RAIN HAD LEFT.
Field work has begun with a vengeance by crop, livestock, vegetable and fruit farmers alike. Yes, it is once again a late spring but with warmer temperatures forecast everyone is hopeful that things will catch up. Whether you farm on a large scale, small scale or have a backyard garden the weather dictates to all of us "how it's gonna be," we have no control over Mother Nature!
We introduced the "Rare Black Belgians" that were here on a trial bases in the last blog - well...... they are now here to stay. They have been named by our youngest grandson (who will likely be the fellow that uses them for competitive plowing) and he has named them Pepe' and Penny.....and yes they are really draft Percherons. (when you've had Belgians all along we are bound to get a little ribbing from our Percheron friends!)
Seen above they are out enjoying green pastures and to the right they are harnessed and hooked to the plow to see how they did. They were brought along side the tractor to see if they remained quiet and focused on the job at hand. They did very well that day. They have very lovely dispositions and seem to get along with all the other horses and mules. Should be a good addition to the farm. Below you can play a VERY short video of them in action.
bring on the May Flowers we found
this wonderful woodland packed
full of our Provincial flower.
Hoping you have had a chance to
see some on a walk or a country
drive this spring. Watch out for the
Black Flies and Ticks and soon to
Cover up and tuck in and enjoy the lovely days despite the bugs!
