Farm animals wake up a little earlier than I want to.
They are up with the sun letting us know it's time
for us to get up too.
The chickens are let out first mainly because the rooster's crow increases in volume if you don't.
The pigs prefer to sleep in ~ all except this little one who wants to know why I disturbed him without bringing him breakfast.
And of course the goats are ready to recieve their handful of grain and handfulls of petting.
Oh look, there is a great blue heron on the pond this morning.
One of the boys goes to feed their cattle.
Lugging 50 lbs of grain, they hop the fence.
The calves are always waiting for them.
A quick peek at the horses to make sure they are all ok and we're almost done.
Looks like D has a friend this morning.
Let's stop to smell a rose, shall we?
As cold as it is, they won't be around much longer.
And what do I wear to do these sunrise chores?
Yes, of course, satin pjs, warm fuzzy white robe,
& work boots!
I mean, what else would you wear at sunrise on a farm?
