Monday Dose of Random Critter Cute

Random critter cute (1) - Birdies taking a break on nine-year-old pet wether Teddy -
The only thing sweeter than a bird hitching a ride on the back of a sheep? Three birds on one sheep.

I didn't get around to putting together a Friday Farm Fix last week, but it wasn't for a lack of cute. Here are nine favorite four-footer shots taken around the farm during the past week (sorry, no chickens). Hover your cursor over each image for a description.

More photos below. . .

©, where neither rain nor sleet nor snow nor sweltering heat can keep us from delivering you the cute—and a snowstorm sounds really nice right about now (except for the part where it would kill all the basil and tomato plants, along with pretty much everything else in the garden).


  1. OK this might be a dumb question, but do you have to instruct or train your stock dogs? Or do they innately know what they need to do? I was looking at your pics and thinking "Did Marta tell Daisy that she was going on a break and Daisy agreed to take over???" LOL. Thanks for humoring me :)

  2. That Bert is quite the little multi-tasker, isn't he. Marta is watching even as she sleeps. I am loving Jasper, he looks like such a cat's cat.


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.

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.

Your feedback is greatly appreciated, and I especially love hearing about your experiences with my recipes. Comments on older posts are always welcome!

Please note that I moderate comments, so if I'm away from the computer it may be a while before yours appears.

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.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope you enjoy your e-visits to our farm!
