The Barns at Night

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

With a bottle baby, we find ourselves out in the barn in full dark to give her the last feeding of the day.  It gives us a chance to have a peek at where everyone beds down for the night.  About half of our sheep and goats share the barn.  The remainder are near (or in) the hayfeeder.  The chickens huddle together on their roost.  This is the one time we can pet each and every one of them.  We have a few that squat down when they see us wanting to be petted, the rest usually run away.  The dogs are on the job.  They greet us at the gate to make sure we’re friends then go back to their posts on opposite sides of the pasture where they can see everything that goes on.  Good dogs.
