The weather sure isn’t cooperating with our busy schedules. We haven’t had much time to work with the ponies yet, other than moving them from barnyard to grazing paddock. Gemini & Misty decided one night that they couldn’t be apart, and we woke to un-hotwire strewn around the pasture, and 2 grass-bellied ponies grazing together. No harm done, and now they share digs. Looks like we’ll be building their permanent corral sooner than planned.
Patty loves to come out and root in his pen whenever we work in the garden. How cool that doing a needed chore also helps him feel like a busy pig, which helps him grow faster. Rain notwithstanding, the garden is coming along. Cabbage, lettuce, chard, spinach, onions, carrots, peas & green beans are planted now, with dry beans, melons, squash, peppers & cukes sprouting on the back porch.
Here are a couple of videos – one of Patty enjoying leftover kettle corn, and one of Misty getting a good first look at Gemini upon her arrival.
