I took advantage of the warmth and sunshine and tried to get as much done outside today as possible. I vaccinated the new lambs and kids, gave the rabbit colony a new bed of straw, picked up and unloaded 800 lbs of feed, cleaned the milk room in preparation to start milking the goats again, bred the show rabbits and unburied my desk (Ok , that was inside). Now, I should be in bed, but I have my second (third, fourth???) wind and am wide awake. I'll pay in the morning!
I did stop long enough today to "play" with the ducks. I love ducks. They are cute and funny. They make me laugh and smile no matter what kind of mood I am in. And they are easy to please. You can absolutely make a duck's day with just a hose and a pan of water.
