Daily Farm Photo 3/16/06: World's Best Pillow

That would be Martha.



  1. Looks like a great pillow!

  2. awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww...

    'nuff said

  3. That is just too darn sweet!!!!!!!!!

  4. Now that is a true picture of mother and child bonding! You gotta love that stuff for the ahhhhhfactor!

  5. This looks like me and my two kids on the sofa after a long day.

    (And the peanut butter sandwich that incited your revolt is indeed real! I pay about $7-$8 for a 60-lb bale of hay in a small ranching town. In Santa Fe, you can pay $10-$11. Is that obscene or what? I need 200 acres and an irrigation ditch.)

  6. "Outta ma way, next time you get the back side and I will be near the front" You can tell by the look on her face (sheepish) that she's fed up with the twins quarrelling and she told them to take turns..How do I know? (three boys, one 12 yr-old en twins, 9 yrs old now, believe me I know!)

  7. That is just precious.

    People have suggested I get a goat so I don't have to have have the weeds wacked. I think a couple of nice little lambs would be much nicer, and less likely to head butt me. ;+)

  8. I'll take 2! You can have Max in exchange....

  9. Your world is just one huge bundle of adorable fuzzies these days! Mine, OTOH, is a warm laptop, a tight writing deadline, and new contact lenses that are giving me a headache. Wanna swap?

  10. Do you think anyone would mind if some chickenz came over to take a nap on that fluffy pillow? (Leaning against other chickens is just lumpy and scritchy.)

  11. That's the sweetest thing I've ever seen.

  12. Awwww... that certainly does look like a comfy pillow!

    They're getting so big! But staying adorable of course. :)

  13. Hi Sarah,
    Sure does!

    Hi Lacy,
    I second that.

    Hi Sher,
    It's like sugar coated sugar around here this time of year. : )

    Hi Vickie,
    Sometimes I feel sorry for the ewes because they can't hold and snuggle their babies, but they do manage to get close like this--and it's so darn cute.

    Hi I.G.O.,
    Ha ha, I bet.

    Yikes, that's a lot of money for hay. Ouch.

    Hi Keewee,
    I swear they grow by the hour.

    Hi Baking Soda,
    LOL, I love your twin insight. Keep it coming!

    Hi B'Gina,
    I say forget the goat and go for a sheep. Goats can get out of practically any fencing, if they get into your shop they will eat all your nuts and bolts, and they smell funny. (Disclaimer: this is not just my opinion--goat keepers tell me this.) Plus, goats like brush and brambles and things a foot or more high; they will starve to death on a nice green pasture. Sheep, on the other hand, will trim your lawn to perfection. Once upon a time they used to use sheep to mow the White House lawn, you know. : )

    Hi Jeff,
    What is so wrong with Max?! : )

    Hi Kitchenmage,
    Tempting, but no.

    Hi Chickens,
    I suppose I should have made you two little woolly beds like I made the dogs and outside cats. I can't believe I didn't think to do that.

    Hi Barbara,
    I come up with a lot of excuses to go "check on the sheep" this time of year, just so I can adore the lambs.

    Hi Sunidesus,
    It really is amazing how fast they grow. And they do stay adorable, but the tiny newborns always win my heart--and make the "old" lambs (two or three weeks old) look so big and grown up.


December 2015 update: Hi!
