Batten Down the Hatches!

We're finally getting some much needed rain from the storm that's been pounding the Northwest. 

Caleb the baby is wearing his warm, waterproof and psychedelic blanket...  Momma says it was on sale! 

Hey ladies, I'm totally confident in my sexuality to wear pink. 

Macaroni has learned that the storm is coming and he'll have to drop his Frenchie nuggets out in the rain.

But momma, you know my sphincter closes shut at the slightest hint of precipitation!

Marshall headed up with our furiend Melony to help round up the goats into their shelter. He was nice enough to spare a bit of room in the truck for Melony to drive...

Is it my fault she didn't spring for the crew cab?

Ben, one of our many friendly, free ranging roosters tucked all their hens into the coup. 


We've been so busy getting everyone ready for the storm, we're plum tuckered out.

SNORE...FART... SNORE... GRUNT... FART.. FART... SNORE...

Stay warm and dry everyone!

    1. Thanks Cindy! Caleb is growing so fast, he probably won't be able to wear that blanket much longer. :(

  2. Love the pink purple paisley! Maybe they make dog coats out of the fabric, too? Glad everyone is warm and dry.

    Drools and licks,

    1. Hi Linda! Secretly, the storm wasn't too bad. Momma has a tendency to worry about everyone. Specially the baby, Caleb.

  6. Can't keep my Frenchie in out of the snow! (May have something to do with her thinking it is like an edible fluff buffet!)

    1. Mancha doesn't mind being outside, even in the rain. But Macaroni is a total momma's boy and doesn't tolerate anything but total pampering. BOL!

  7. We love the psychedelic blanky on the baby horse! And we love all the farm animals too!
    The chicken and her husband looked very happy.
    Enjoy your rain- we are tired of it

    1. Hi Tweedles, our dear friend. We know you guys have been getting the brunt of this winter storm. We're a bunch of wusses compared to you! Looking forward to the Spring flowers (and lower hay prices) this rain will bring.
