We met Jen and Mike for breakfast at the hotel in the morning. They were able to stay overnight because they have a compound apprentice (niece Morgan) on site for a bit and were able to utilize her as a babysitter.
We drove up to see the Compound and have lunch with the Hawleys and Ms Smith.
Since I was there last, Mike has added a calf, two pigs, several dozen pheasants, some guinea hens and a couple of barn cats. I had to see the new additions.
|I can't get enough of Mike's birds, and these pheasant babies are no exception. I had to dip my hand in the vat of peeping chicks and grab a couple. They are so cute.|
|This is a post Morgan helped install. She dug the hole and helped insert the pole into it. The pen is going to be used for the piggies.|
|I can't remember which bunny this is, but he was very cuddly. He made cute little munching noises as he ate the carrot I offered.|
|Rochester and Gavin, aka Ribs and Bacon. When they are butchered, I get some of the meat.|
|Violet just oooooozes attitude. And she toted a cat everywhere she went. The kitty bore the toting with no resistance. Kitties--the new fashion accessories.|
|But Lewis was the star of the day. He is so cute. He loves Mike and Morgan. He frolicked for us and ran around like a puppy.|
|The cutest thing Lewis did was he nibbled on Morgan's shirt and shorts pocket flap. It made Morgan laugh and laugh.|
