Daily Farm Photo 2/22/06: Snow Love

Cold Heart


  1. Well that is onething I know you don't have :)

  2. Hi I ran across your blog somehow and just wanted to say I love all your photos! I grew up on a dairy farm and had sheep for several years. My favourite time of the year would be lambing season and all your photos brings back some good memmories. Sheep and lambs definitely are characters!

  3. Say it ain't so!

  4. Very cool! I love your heart collection! And congrats on becoming an aunt so many times over!

  5. Hi Sarah,

    Hi Clare,

    Hi Anna,
    Welcome to the farm! I'm so glad you found us and enjoyed your visit. Yes, sheep and lambs are definitely characters. Almost as amusing as donkeys! Thanks for taking the time to write and say hello.

    Hi Pablo,
    It ain't so!

    Hi Michelle,
    Thanks. But this heart never made it into my collection. Just happened to catch it during its brief appearance on the driveway.

    LOL, I like the term "aunt" better than what my mom called me this morning--Grandma! Hmmm. Does that mean I get to call her Great Grandma? : )

  6. Ooo.. I like aunt too! Auntie Farmgirl. Has a nice ring to it.

    Got a question for ya.. is the Llama expecting too? I bet they have pretty chocolate colored babies! How are they doing anyway?

    Hope you are having a great afternoon keeping watch on those sheepsies.

  7. Love it! It would make a great greeting card cover.

  8. Cold heart, but great photo!

  9. so that's where lindy (the chicken) left it.... =:o

  10. Wooha Jeff, that's some coldhearted comment, I think there is some pecking in order...

  11. Who you calling heartless, Jeffster? We chickens are widely known for our warmth and compassion. Haven't you ever heard the expression, "as gentle as a chicken"?

    Jeeez. Why do you think they call them "chicken tenders"?

  12. Hi Heather,
    Well, I suppose Auntie Farmgirl is better than Grandma Farmgirl.

    Brief llama update: Our llama couple is doing fine, munching on hay and treats and enjoying their large pen (maybe 3/4 acre?) adjacent to the barnyard. At night they usually sleep right next to the fence by the sheep--I am giving them the benefit of the doubt and assuming they are guarding them and not just watching them for laughs.

    I don't know if the female is pregnant or not. If she is, the only thing that's showing is her testy attitude. She does not have a very nice personality--and I'm hoping it's hormones! We did finally name her, but I think I should announce it more formally in a post with a photo. Soon!

    Fortunately the as yet unnamed male is extremely patient and puts up with her chasing him from their food, spitting at him (yes, spitting at him!) I warned her the other day that if she doesn't watch out, her ears are going to stay permanently pinned back like that. I don't know. Maybe she doesn't like living with us. After months, she still refuses to take off the sticker from the auction barn that is stuck to her back end. : )

    Hi Sweetnicks,

    Hi Nina,
    : ) right back at you!

    Hi Tai,

    Hi Jeff,
    Oh sure. Tough Guy doesn't have to worry--he lives on the other side of the country from Lindy. I bet you'd be clucking a different tune if she lived in your backyard. Hmmmm. Now there's an idea. Mild weather, glorious food, even a swimming pool (don't worry, I'm sure the dog loves chickens). . . Oh, Lin-dy!

    Hi Baking Soda,
    Good one!

    Hi Sailu,

    Hi Lindy The Chicken,
    Um, actually I've never heard that expression, "as gentle as a chicken," but then again, I don't get out much. Are you sure you and Whitey didn't just make it up?

    And another thing, dear. I think you and I need to have a little talk about what chicken tenders are. I'm sure they sounded good in your argument, but you've--how do I put this?--led a very sheltered life.

    Hi Alisha,
    : )

    Hi Kat,
    Thank you twice!


December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions.

Hi! Thanks for visiting Farmgirl Fare and taking the time to write. While I'm not always able to reply to every comment, I receive and enjoy reading them all.

I try my best to answer all questions, though sometimes it takes me a few days. And sometimes, I'm sorry to say, they fall through the cracks, and for that I sincerely apologize.
