Meet Little Sarah

 The newest member of Nestle Inn Bed and Breakfast is little Sarah. Sadie gave birth to her on September 25, 2012. She weighed in at slightly less than 4.5 pounds. The delivery was rough, but was even rougher for Sarah's brother, who didn't make it.

I'm glad to say Sadie is recovering, and Sarah is getting friskier by the day. Already Sadie has had to call her back due to her curiosity. She wants to get her little nose into everything she can.

Life With The Chickens

The three kittens who are still home are now 5 months old. I found the orange tiger, Trouble, chasing the chickens the other day because, well, he likes to cause trouble. Bob, a dark gray tiger, is just Bob. And then there is Sandy. I often find him among the new flock of pullets trying to rub up against them to get a little attention. The chickens are used to their four-legged companion. In fact, I'm kind of concerned that they are too comfortable with him. There were a couple of days last week that I found several of the pullets following a squirrel over to the edge of the woods.

Look What Ya Went And Done...

Yep, I know it. I've actually known for years what happens at times when ya put a male and female together. Especially when it comes to the animal world. Well, then, what was I thinkin' when I opened the goat gate between the buck and the does in mid-April? Obviously, I wasn't thinking. Because, now, Sadie (aka Lunch or Dinner) is due to have kids by the end of this month.

Sadie & twins?

The photo doesn't do her justice. She is wider in true life than she appears here.

Look Ma, Can I Keep It?

He won't eat much
And just so you'll know where he is...

I'll keep him in my pocket.
