As the days get shorter and the temps drop there are other changes here at the farm for all of us dogs. The last group of chickens that Sam was in charge of left the farm September 19th. He did an awesome job. He kept all those scary predators lurking in the woods from getting to any of our feathered friends. With the meat chickens gone, Sam was re-assigned to the laying hens. Turns out Sam doesn't really like those girls and they're not so fond of him either. They never became friends. So he's at the home farm hanging out with the Bull, Flag and Ray.
In the winter Sam puts on a thick coat of white fur that will keep him nice and toasty on those cold winter days. He stays warm huddled up with his buddy the bull too. They have a very unique friendship.
Rose and Lucy have been hanging out with the sheep all this summer and they are starting to figure out their roles.
Sometimes I go into to play with the girls and they stay between me and the sheep to keep them safe. We run and play until we are tuckered out but it's a lot of fun to get them all excited. The sheep herd just moved to the home farm and it was fun to watch the sheep follow Rose. She leads and they follow.
You all have a great weekend and I hope to see you around the farm one day!
Lick ya later!
