Meet Rush

He was born this afternoon shortly before 3:00.

His mom is Roasie. She was featured in the Sheep Porn post last December.

His dad was also a Romney. He has some recessive coat genes my mom was hoping to get into our herd. Its too soon to tell if Rush has them or not.

We haven’t decided if we’re keeping him or not. We probably shouldn’t have named him but I just couldn’t resist. And its an ‘R’ name so it fits the herd.

He’s the only lamb we’ll get this spring. We tried to breed Seneca to Rodney but she didn’t take.

Curious cows

The other day I mulched around all the fruit trees and bushes here at the Kuper house. I used the composted manure we’ve been using for all the fruit trees here on the farm.

I came in for lunch and glanced out the window. Every last cow was piled up in the corner of the pasture near the house. They must have been curious about the mulch.

It was pretty unusual to see the cows interested in something other than their feed.
