Random pix

I took these shots the morning of Dec 22.

Full moon setting:

Rising sun on the hay...

...and on Brit.

Grumpy Gimli gets up to face the day.

Lydia gets spoiled. (Again.)

Sadly we lost our half-grown rooster Crackle. We found him drowned in the cows' water trough. How (and why) he got in there is unknown. I don't think it was because he was thirsty since of course the chickens have fresh water in their coop. Maybe a cow startled him and he fluttered into the tank and couldn't get out. We've never lost a chicken to drowning before so this was just weird.


  1. So sorry for the loss of your animal. Animals sometimes do weird things.

  2. Poor Crackle. Maybe he got scared and died from a heart attack. Chickens are very...well...chicken. RIP, young Crackle.

  3. Grumpy Gimli... just hit the snooze button a little too hard...
