Tansy, Benji, and Baby Birds
New puppies here? But wasn't it Peach's turn? Sadly, Kendy Sawyer, our kennel partner had an accident coming off her horse. So at WoodSong farm, we are raising a third consecutive litter having taken in Kendy's Peach who was bred to our Benji. While Kendy is recovering, we are trying to take care to include her as we can while raising all her new Peach blossoms! Unfortunately one pup (#7) did not make it, but here is a peek at the new pups here.
In the meantime, only Asher is left here from Winter's litter and will be going home tomorrow. All pups are in there new homes from the previous two litters after this. As you can imagine, we are quite busy trying to keep all our duck in a row. (Isn't that the collies' job?) I am so excited to hear how all our babies are doing and always look forward to updates from their new families on our Shepherd's Hearth facebook page. And the blossoms will continue to bloom also! It appears to be a big puppy year for our farm and kennel!
Heroics of yesterday - Tansy walked up to my son and barked and took him down to the chicken gate that had been left open. 7 chickens had already escaped and were wandering the yard. At this point Lorna came to see what was going on and to help. Tansy would corner and hold chickens with her paws for my son to put back in. Interestingly, Lorna brought the chickens to Tansy next to my son to hold down for my son! (I guess the dogs don't have as much confidence in our chicken catching skills! 😆 ) Other chickens had escaped to visit the rams where Lorna took her turn holding chickens and waiting for us to put them over he fence. I love watching the girls team up!
This blog chronicles our very full life here on WoodSong Farm. We will share everything from dog to sheep stories, unique wooly works, to animal husbandry tips we pick up along the way. I hope this helps to give you an idea of what our extended farm family and wooly projects are like, and that we may somehow benefit everyone who reads about our journey.
