Another week completed of volunteering. Two down, one to go. Yesterday it rained the entire day. Today perfect weather - mid 60's. So, our crew had plans!
First thing, the OX
Over 70 musk ox call this farm home. I never knew much about these animals until today. Here at the farm they live to about 20. They grow a type of very soft under fur that is harvested and used for scarves, hats, etc. At a cost of $95.00 an ounce I didn't buy any. The bulls are kept in one pasture.
Some of the cows were more friendly.
But especially friendly were the young. This one is over a year old. She followed us as we walked by her fence. They love dandelions.
Then there are the babies born in April this year.
Now the BIRDS:
An air show featuring the Air Force Thunderbirds.
And as we pulled into the campground, this greeted us.
Great day, indeed!
