Saturday Snaps: georgie plays

Georgie, is the type of goose that gives all geese a bad name.  He hisses, pulls out chicken’s feathers, pinches the dogs, and me!    It is unfortunate that he has such an ill temper, because on days like this, he does make me laugh with his playfulness.

The gate to the chicken’s run lets chickens in and keeps Georgie out!  The item he is playing with is the scoop I use to dispense the scratch grains… Georgie loves chicken scratch.  😉

Have a lovely day!

 

This and that.

The application for the mortgage is in.  Now we wait.

The chickens are back to laying again! 

Fresh eggs anyone?

(!!!)

Late last week it got down to about 23 degrees overnight.  It has taken me five years of living here to figure out to fill the water buckets the night before, and then just break the ice the next morning!  WAY easier than hauling three gallon water buckets from the bathroom out to the goose run.

Recently, my friend Lori of Day by Day the Farm Girl Way wrote a post about how water freezes and its delicate nature  HERE

Well, there is certainly nothing delicate about these 3 x 3 inch quite pointy formations, now is there?  😉

How did that happen?

Polly has a secret.  Shhh…

And Frellnick is a very overprotective father to be!

He looks so threatening, doesn’t he?  But he is all show with me.  Georgie on the other hand has been getting his ‘tail feathers’ whupped this past week. 

Sadly, I have had to separate them again.  😦

In the meantime, I have finally calmed down from the excitement of new Farmlet buying.    So now I wait for a house appraisal, thoroughly CLEAN the aforementioned house in preparation for a very special visitor (who flies in for a weeks stay next month) and watch for Polly to begin setting in earnest!

So much is happening over the next four weeks! 

Don’t you agree?

 

Fun while it lasted!

This morning, for an hour, it snowed with abandon…

By the way, Frellnick and Polly are now inseparable, and doesn’t Frellnick look  proud?  I guess their little honeymoon in the back yard did the trick… 

He doesn’t take any guff off of Georgie now!
