Friday Farm Fotos: Frosty Fenceposts, A Flicker, and Flap

The sheepies head back to the barn after trying to find some greenery....





Since Friday is errand day (*ugh*), today's post will be quick and a little random~
but I thought I would share some of this weeks' pictures before I head out the door.




Whenever we have a hard frost, Daisy likes to nibble the ice off the fenceposts.
I managed to snap this picture before she got to it.....
There she is in the background, unaware of the tasty goodness on the corner post.
(I'm thinking about getting her a snow cone maker for Christmas next year.)





We had a surprise visit from Mr. Flicker on Wednesday.... 



I looked out the window and thought he was just another dove at first, 
but then I saw the flash of red on the back of his head.
He's very dapper with his black "bowtie",
and I just love that little squeaky noise he makes.






And finally~ I don't think you've met Flap, have you?


Flap is our young splash roo I kept from last years' hatch.
We moved him and his three girls into their own suite about a month ago, 
and the girls wasted no time going broody. (Imagine that.)
If you notice his comb, it's a bit on the floppy side~ very unusual for a Silkie. 
I think Flap kinda suits him...
and besides, it has to be better than being called Flop.
:)


Happy Friday everyone!

  7. Paula - I think Daisy may prefer her snow-cone machine for her birthday so she can use it during the summer!

    Cute roo - you could call him Flip, too!


    Have a great weekend!

  17. You could call the roo flap-flop ! I love seeing the critters on your farm, and it is funny your sheep likes the frost on the posts.

    Flickers are fun to watch, and they really are dashingly handsome with the red sash. Looks like you were able to snatch some good moments and photos at home before heading into town to run errands, kinda makes up for losing some of the day away from the farm.

  19. Oh, you always make me laugh. I have to agree though...Flap over Flop does seem preferable. Love the line of beautiful sheep.

  20. Hope you get warmer weather at your home, It looks cold over there also.

    Flap is a lovely name and Mr Flicker is beautiful.

    It's really nice pics!

    Answer: The fallow deer calf is gone right now. Perhaps i will see it again. Hope it survive.
