Wednesday Surprise

I know I thought things would settle down once lambing was done but it never seems to end. I walked out between rain showers to gather eggs. I glanced across the yard as usual & saw some poultry at the feed trough. As I glanced away, it registered with me that I'd just seen a whole mess of ducklings mulling about. Their mother had brought them in from a far pasture as she knew where there was a sure supply of easy-to-eat food. After a little running, Katy & I managed to gather all 9 ducklings as well as the anxious mother. We locked them all in a stall in the stable where they are safe from downpours, hawks, raccoons, opposum & just about everyone & everything else that would enjoy a little duckling-kabob.
