This is always a good sign that spring has arrived. We have five seasons in Maine. Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter and MUD season. It's doesn't get to be a real mess unless it's 50 everyday for a week. Then the mud is a foot deep. With the gentle or sometimes not so gentle March winds and a slow-w-w-w-w melt, it dries up fairly quickly.
The ducks are quite happy. I couldn't get close enough to get a real good shot of them but they are definitely out of their "home territory" looking for a puddle. When they see me, they run for cover, and then struggle to climb the snowbank because they are in so much of a hurry. They are a riot to watch :) ** could someone please tell me how to post photos so viewers can click on them to enlarge them?**
These gals should have wide load signs on their backsides :) I expect they will both have at least twins or triplets. Delilah was not feeling very photogenic and refused to have her picture taken. She's not as large as these two but twins wouldn't surprise me. They are all very good Mom's and babies should be arriving any day now. I can hardly wait :)
All the pygoras are in full fleece. It is soooo soft and fluffy. Tomorrow is shearing day. Everyone will get a haircut, feet trimmed, vaccinations and de-worming. I'll be sure to post before and after photos.
