Happy Independence Day from Green Eggs and Goats

Helloooooo there!

Beulah Belle the Jersey Cow here!

Happy Independence Day! Or as the animals here call it, happy shoot-fireworks-and-scare -the-pants-off-of-us day! Well, we don't wear pants, but you get my drift ...

Pallet flag

Anyway, summer is in full swing here at the farm. It seems like the farmers spend half their time just filling water bowls or watering their garden, which looks delicious, but they aren't nice about sharing with us animals at all! The chickens, however, have been enjoying horn worms that the farmers pick off the tomatoes. YUCK is all I have to say about that!

That's about it for now!  For more fun updates about what's happening on the farm, you may want to check out these blog posts:

Beulah Belle, it's great to hear from the barnyard. I agree you about the fireworks. They are not my favorite thing either. It looks like you have a pretty fancy flag pallet to decorate your home. Yeah, I don't particularly like bugs or worms either. Chickens are kind of weird, don't you think? We do have one food in common and that's corn. You like it a little harder than me and ground up but it is delicious, isn't it. In fact I did have some corn over the weekend for the 4th of July celebration. I expect that holidays are just a human celebration and for the barnyard it's just another day. ***** I hope to hear from you again soon with a barnyard report. ***** Have a great homestead animal day.
