Flying Under the Radar


The tree that was downed in a storm a few days ago was turned into firewood yesterday.

Glory Bee has been supervising this tree closely since it was felled.

She had plans. Oh, yes, PLANS.

Well, I’m not entirely sure if they were her plans or if she was being directed from behind the scenes.

Chickens: “First, we get the Giant Calf to tell them where to put the bird feeders back up. On the front end, we’ll pick up the spilled seeds.”

“Somebody keep an eye on the back for the rest to come out. WIN WIN.”

    LOVE the last pic! The girls & GB are soooo beautiful!

  16. Darlene in North GA says:

    You’ve got a calf knocking out bird feed for the chickens, cats opening doors for the animal poker party and cats(again)knocking stuff off the table for the dogs. Next it will be Clover butting feed off the deck to the applause of the crowd below.
    Ya gotta watch those animals.
    Ya just have to walk around outside in those chore boots more often! So they remember who’s boss. Oh. Wait. THEY’RE the boss! :yes:

    Glory Bee is getting so big. She was just a little baby calf not long ago. Will she be bigger than her mother being she’s half Brown Swiss? She already seems much bigger than a Jersey that age. She’s so pretty.

  18. Ramona says:

    Looks like teamwork going on there.

  19. Liz Pike says:

    I love how you put stories together with your photos, Suzanne! And this looks to be an accurate interpretation of what they are all planning and saying!! Smart Giant Calf, smart chickens!
