The boys used yesterday afternoon to finish priming and begin the main coat of paint on the barn that was constructed a year ago.
Jonathan's chicks are enjoying the warmth as well. They are replacements for the loss of 40 laying hens at the end of September. That is one item I have wanted to blog about, but just haven't had a lot of extra time lately.
Peter was busy hitting the high spots.
Andrew was up on the ladder, too. You can see the finished product via a video on Andrew's blog .
Jonathan was also on the paint crew.
Sandy the cow is very pregnant, and we estimate her due date to be in the middle of this month. Won't be long before we have our own butter, cream and milk!

Samson is my buddy, because he knows I will throw things for him to retrieve. This basketball just happened to be handy! As it is, it's full of teeth marks.
