Windy Meadows Farm... three, 4-leaf clovers

Earlier this year I posted on our farm blog about finding a 4-leaf clover. The chances of finding one are slim ... it's said for every 10,000 3-leaf clovers you find, you may find only one, 4-leaf clover.

That same day, I found 2 more ... I was stunned, and thought, "Wow, something good must be about to happen!"

... three new hens

A friend of ours decided that 6 of her hens needed a new home ... she had already found a home for three of them, and wondered if we'd mind taking the remaining ones.

And so that's how Eulalie, Alma and Ethel came to Windy Meadows Farm. Our daughter had just been in The Music Man, and for those of you familiar with the musical, those are the Pick-a-Little Ladies ... and because those new gals chatter non-stop, the names are perfect!

Thanks Dave...we've sure learned a lot! Goats, chickens, bees...that should be enough to keep me out of trouble! -Mary

Mary, your farm family is growing by leaps and bounds, isn't it. I wish you well in your animal endeavors. ***** Have a great goat naming day.

Thanks Anabell...leave it to our 13-year old daughter! She's recently become a Dr. Who fan...and so has the rest of the family! -Mary
