The Breakfast Club

Some shots from the other day. Today is sunny and way too hot for February. Ugh.  I know I'm in the minority, but I sure hope winter is not over.

The breakfast greeters.  Left to right - Allie, Liddy, Daniel, Woody

Andy tries hard to be a clever and excited gate climber, but the boy has No Skills.  You can see that Woody has walked away and around the corner to show him how it's really done.  

"Quit taking pictures and just put the food out.  And not that blecky orchard grass.  We want some the first hay."

We'd all like some more of that first hay, Maisie.  Luckily we have had a mild winter and hay that we couldn't find anywhere last fall is popping up in ads all over the place. Hopefully they won't have to eat the two year old orchard grass much longer.  I am obviously not feeding any more of the bad hay.

The old (safe) orchard grass is so unpopular that about a third of the flock has decided to go forage elsewhere.  It's not that bad.  If I'd fed it first this winter they'd have eaten it much better.  It's sort of like eating homemade sweet rolls for a couple months and then having to switch to plain shredded wheat.   

I doubt we'll have to worry about it too much longer.  I think spring is right around the corner.  Sadly (ducking and running ;-).
