A walk around the farm

Farm Girl and I took a walk today through the back part of our property.We actually bought this place without even seeing that part of the property, so until a couple weeks ago we had never seen quite a few acres of our own property! We knew that our creek comes from back there and we could see some cattails from one of the pastures so we thought that it was probably a small swampy area. But then the person we bought it from told us that they used to keep some of their horses back there, so we realized we must have more and better land back there than we realized. So, we mowed a path and went to check it out.

It's really overgrown, but it's a great area! It would be perfect for either horses or cows with lots of space, the creek running through, and a shelter for the animals. 

Here's a run down of the rest of our walk today:

                  This is part of that area I was talking about...LOTS of mowing to be done!

                                                    Our guineas following us around.

                                             The most tame geese I've ever had.

                                                         One of the shelters.

The creek, looking from the North pasture to the back part of the property.

Storm clouds coming in over one of the barns.

The kid's rabbits. I though our Golden Retriever shed a lot until we got these guys!

A little Fall foliage.

These days my "commute" is out to this balcony with my tea. 

Stable and corral

The front yard, can you see our peacocks?

I really love the geese.

One of the roosts in the chicken house.

Hopefully next year the area inside this fence will be our garden spot.

I'll have my work cut out for me to get it ready, look at those HUGE weeds!

And to finish up, a little Halloween decorating with a plastic pumpkin until we get our real ones!

It was a perfect day for a walk, and now a nice rainy night for sleeping!
