November Afternoon Feeding

Here's Roy out feeding and watering the poultry yesterday afternoon. No snow yet, and the temperature was in the mid-20s.

Lots of green grass still in evidence.

Ducks, chickens and geese but no wild Mallards. Roy said they were visiting in full force yesterday morning, but they were no where to be seen in the afternoon.

This is probably the reason the Mallards aren't here. As you can see by this shot of one end of our pond, it's covered with skim ice. I hope we haven't seen the last of the Mallards for the season, but at chore time this morning, they still hadn't shown up.

A brown, hairy chore helper. Zoey, The Wonder Dog, says, "Why don't I get fed when they do?"


  1. In spite of the sun and no snow, it does look cold--especially when I see that ice on the pond. (It was cold and windy here too yesterday--had to add the long-john layer.....)

    Is Zoey a German Wirehaired Pointer?

  2. Hi, Ruthie - Zoey is a Pudel Pointer . . . who is afraid of water. We worked with her extensively on this to no avail. The breeder offered an exchange for another puppy but, of course, by then we were too attached to her. She'll be 12 in March and still won't even cross a shallow stream if she can't clear it in a jump. Aminals!
