Just a little info to keep everyone up to date...

It's a crazy hot day on the farm, and has been the last couple of days.

Today is our water turn, lets hope all the water stays in the dam this time, with no flooding in the fields like last time.

We have a bunch of new goslings on the farm, 4 proud new moms, now its time to get them on the water.

It's heating up...

Spring is well on its way, the temperatures being experienced are quite, erm, abnormal for this time of year, to say the least.
