Abstract Farm Crap

Lamb Report: After two days of rainy, forced captivity, everyone leaped through the barn gate and out onto the bright green grass like they'd been shot from a cannon--except And Posh who is still staying at The Bonding Suite Inn with her baby girl. Earlier Donkey Doodle Dandy was in there keeping her company (he sure looks bigger in the barn). Then a little while ago I found 2 mothers and 11 lambs in the barn--looks like somebody was stuck with Nursery Duty. Current Lamb Count: 20. Number of times it took me to come up with the correct count before I would let the stir-crazy, impatient, tightly packed (and very wet) woollies out of the barn this morning: 5.


  1. Cool shot. (I'm such a sucker for close-ups)

  2. That's quite the medieval looking farm implement. Maybe you could use it in your kitchen to hang pots from, or you could make a windchime with it.

    I can't wait to see Posh's new baby. Dan is a real sweetheart to keep her company.

    Glad everyone is outside enjoying their freedom!

  3. you have the most amazing, informative, whimsical and fun blog I think I have ever read.

  4. More from the Art by Chickenz Gallery, I see. Poultry Moderne. Up all night hanging this one just right. Glad to see that we are getting some of the critical attention our Work deserves.
    Not that we care for fame, glamour, and the like. Chickenz live for their Art, as you know.

  5. Hey! I just loved the picture of Bear and Dan. Totally funny how they are scratching each other. Dan sure has a big heart for doing babysitting for free. I hope he is getting some apples and carrots for this special efforts. Food rewards go a long way!


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. My apologies for any inconvenience! You're always welcome to email me: farmgirlfare AT gmail DOT com.
