What A Nice Day On The Farm.......and The Winners Please!

Hello........sweet ladies,

This is what we found when we drove up the lane. Not fun!!!!!   We have other tree limbs down around the farm.....they will be worked on later. So thankful it wasn't worse.

I hurried when I got home and jumped out of the car to go and check on the baby chicks and Cochins down in the milk see if everyone was okay.........look at the girlies. They were in the nest on Saturday together when we left. Love em!!!!!!! The roosters and girls were all going a little crazy before we left on Sat. I think they sensed something was going on with the weather. They were running in an out of the nest boxes that were not being they were hiding or something. I have another girly that is broody right now also. Hoping to put the eggs in the incubator under her if she stays on the next all day on Monday. 

 "Two are better than one" I know the Lord was writing to us, but  the verse did come to mind. Usually a Momma who is sitting on a nest will not share.  My girls are sweet!

Off to go and check on Juneau, our Momma horse who any day now is going to have her baby........NO baby! Oh man were we sad. We thought the storm would get her going. We will wait. She knows when it is time and we don't! Our granddaughter is trying to come up with a name. She asked for some Alaska towns. Thought that was neat. I gave her some. She will know when she sees her baby what to name it!

What a last two days we have had! I am glad to be home tonight (writing this on Sunday evening)!  Thank you again so much for your prayers, you are such sweeties. Found out today there were 97  reports of tornados in Kansas. Thankful no deaths.
