Cat in the tree

We haven't put up the Christmas tree in several years. Imagine how exciting it was for a full time house cat to have a tree inside. Now I remember "why" we haven't put it up in several years.~Pat

New Buggy Seat

The goats have really done a number on the buggy's seat this year. Duct tape worked for a while but they found it to be a new challenge to peel that lovely purple tape off. I don't know why the vinyl became so torn anyway. People just sit on it, right?

Anyway, the seat is now re-covered with lovely expensive feed sacks (hey........feed *is* expensive), a little duct tape and staples. We'll see how long this lasts. It looks pretty good if you ask me! ~Pat

Newest addition here at BTR

We noticed that one of our 7 mo old hens wasn't roosting with her sisters at night so the hunt was on to find her. Those Americana's are really good at hiding. We found her in a goat shelter laying down behind some pallets and she had eggs under her. This late in the year and as young as she is and she is being broody? What a surprise. Saturday it was cool, rainy and just unpleasant outside. We came in late after an evening of shopping and we heard chirping. Our little gal had hatched out 10 little chicks. I bet Lynne is glad she is back in MN so she doesn't have to share her bathroom with more baby chicks! ~Pat
