It took a bit longer than anticipated, but we are finally back! I did enjoy the break, and it made it easier for me to focus on getting my shop ready for Christmas shopping season, which has started out well! It’s been keeping me quite busy, but Luke and I wanted to get a quick post up to say hello to those who have hopefully missed us!
I have lots of farm stories to tell, and things to catch up on with my longtime readers of my former blog, Wag ‘n Woof Pets. It’s been a rough year on the farm, with fall being the worst, but we persevere even through some sad events and difficulties.
The current flock is doing well, in spite of being on lockdown because of foxes in the area, and the shorter days and cold weather. Luke has been on top of his farm dog duties, in letting us know when said foxes are around so we can discourage them from hanging around. I wrote about this relationship he has with the birds in a past post “Farm Life – Taking Care of Each Other”.
Egg production is way down, however, because of all the factors above, as well as the birds going through their molt. We’ll write more about that when we get back to a regular schedule – still working on that!
Right now, I’m keeping this short, while I’m still making sure everything is working as it should on the new website! There are some kinks I’m still working on, but overall everything went well (thanks to Jessica Shipman for doing all the hard work!). First order of business was hoping this post would go out to everyone who is currently subscribed to our Wag ‘n Woof Pets email list!
Let me know in the comments below how you saw this post, whether by receiving it in email or from social media. We’ll leave you with a couple photos of the flock when they were still free-ranging and of Luke on a recent walk.
We’ll be back with more soon!
