We have foals (3) so far.....expecting a couple more before summer is over.....BUT, we have OTHER babies too!
Thought it would be fun to find out about what everyone has/raises/breeds other than horses......
This past month has been busy with babies......Four Chickens and Nine Ducklings hatched...... Four Guinea Piglets born two days ago... and last night we had Holland Lop Rabbit Kits born!
Three chicks are Cochin/Austrolorp crosses and one is a Cochin/Lavender Americauna cross (the latter we are keeping).
The Ducklings are domestic Mallards and 7 are already sold and we are keeping two.
The Guinea Piglets were a MISTAKE and we are selling. My daughter thought she bought 2 males from Petco as pets......Oops. (They are cute!)
The Bunnies.......2 dead, but we have 2 alive. We'll be selling or giving them to 4-H-ers as that used to be an important part of our lives when the daughter was in middle school and high school. The Holland Lop parents are still young and I'm encouraging the daughter to let them go too. That will only leave us with 2 senior Satin rabbits that she showed and I am fond of....so they'll stay as pets until they die of old age.
Of course we also have our cats and dogs, but they are ALL "fixed" and were rescued/adopted.
Yep....we have Farm! LOL.....
