I hope all of you are safe and sound after the storm that hit the Mid-Atlantic area over the weekend.
Surprisingly and wonderfully, we did not lose power! Thus, I was able to enjoy receiving emails from TMG friends and readers during the storm.
In Tennessee, Betty of Persimmon Ridge Honey Farm received about 4 inches of snow and sent me the most wonderful picture taken after the storm. I immediately asked her if I could share it with all of you!
The picture is striking at first glance, but more wonderful if you examine it closer.
Look at the two hens walking with the goats in the snow!
“I do have a chicken house but those particular hens have moved in with the goats and follow them around.
It’s good for parasite control as they pick through the goat poo! These are myotonic goats. They are on the smaller side and are a very docile breed–even the bucks are docile.”
She keeps them for brush control and enjoyment mostly, but sells the extra goats.
If you want some great and enjoyable reading, or just want to know more about Betty’s goats, visit her website PersimmonRidgeHoneyFarm.com where she writes about goats and bee keeping.
