Wake up the dogs.
Check Abbie's udder. Getting bigger... babies coming this week we hope.
Feed baby Greta. She's finally decided that grain isn't half bad.
Milk mama Molly. She gives us about two quarts every morning and Greta nurses for the rest of the day.
Let the goats out, make them happy with hay. Giggle at the size comparison because Greta is almost as big as her mama Molly. Abbie is just huge.
Abbie always thinks the best hay is at the bottom. Molly is happy with stuff on the top. Greta takes whatever falls out.
Feed those hungry horses. Cringe at the fact that it is shedding season and there is now white hair on everything you own.
Check chicken feeders, make sure they are full.
Gather duck eggs that are laid before dawn in mud nests.
Say good morning to all of the "babies".
Refill the pool for the ducks.
Have a morning chat with Noodle, the flock's senior gossip queen.
Go find the coffee and smile because life is good.
