Sally brought them out of the trailer... and omg. They're so tiny. At least a foot shorter than Carlos. Their little noses are adorable, as are the fluffy legs and top knots. We let them into the north pasture and the main pen to let them sniff everything out and get to know the rest of the herd over the fence. There was snuffling from Carlos and Starr, but that was about it. They just looked at each other and let out the occasional hum.
Here they are at the farm on their first day. They immediately found the bean piles, the dust rolling locations, and the water tank.

Speaking of rain, it's planting season. I spent the last week hauling tanker loads of fertilizer for Day Farms. All the corn is in, so next up is beans. Today the guys are getting the equipment ready for beans, and if the rain holds off, we'll be planting this week.
After that's all done - pots! The state fair is *only* 80 days away. ;)
