Critters on My Aussie Farm

Good morning, luvs!

It’s a blissfully cloudy day and I’m so grateful for the coolness after the piping hot weather we’ve had the last few weeks. πŸ™‚

I thought I’d take you on a little tour of some of my beloved critters here on the farm in Australia. πŸ™‚

We have a LOT of chooks (chickens) right now and will soon have heaps more since we have darling chicks arriving every day. πŸ™‚ These are some of our Light Sussex scratching around in the straw for bits of grain leftover from the goats feeding.

Here are our newest additions highly curious about my camera but none too impressed with having their picture taken.

This is our resident duck gang that waddles around en masse quacking animatedly. They make me laugh.

I love this sweet new goat nibbling happily among the Australorps and Light Sussex.

Here is one of two horses: Swannee Bay Jane and Gunnago Miss Baby Bars. πŸ™‚ Aren’t those the most outrageous and fabulous names?

These are my favorite members of the farm family, maybe because I got to celebrate their birth and name them. The mama on the left is L’Abri, and the twins cuddling on the grass are Felix and Sophie. They are the friendliest little goats, always running up for pats on the head and scratches around their horns.

Do you have any animals where you live?

jenny@atasteoftravel - You seem very much at home on the farm Krista. The twins are so cute!

bellini - Look at those sweet faces. No pets allowed in my condo so I live vicariously through my friends.

Krista - I’m so glad, Susan. πŸ™‚ They have the same effect on me. πŸ™‚

Krista - I do love it here, Jenny! πŸ™‚ As much as I love travel, there’s really no place like home. πŸ™‚

Krista - Aren’t they adorable, Val? πŸ™‚ I just can’t keep from smiling when I look at them. πŸ™‚

Faith - What a fun post — I loved the tour of your farm!Β  And I’m jealous of your chickens and fresh eggs, lol.Β  Sadly, no animals here!Β 

Guest - The very last thing I would have imagined is Krista running an animal farm!

a spoonful of yumm - i love visiting farms…one of the simple joys in life. around here i see crows and cows lol

Anonymous - These animals are adorable, the last photo is my favorite, so cute πŸ™‚ Β We’ve got some animals near us, but mainly in the hills. A local favorite is the wild
boar – maybe not the most cuddly animal, lol πŸ™‚Β 

Lindyloumac - Oh you are surrounded by such cute animals. πŸ™‚

Bethany Bassett - Oh hun, I can tell you’re THRIVING there! I didn’t get a chance to comment on your “How I’m really doing” post (in a timely manner, that is… ::grin::), but my heart goes out to you for your hellish year and leaps to think of you settling into a peaceful, healthful, beautiful new home.Β 

Alan - . . what a lovely post – delightful photos. Your blog is a great find. By the way, is ‘Happy Birthday’ appropriate?

Will - Gap Daemon - Wow I love that you took us right into the heart of your farm. Lovely set of animals you’ve got there I must say. Bet they create quite the mess no?

Krista - LOL! I’d have to agree with you – but I sure am having fun. πŸ™‚

Krista - Thank you so much, Faith! πŸ™‚ I LOVE having fresh eggs every day – and wish you were next door so I could foist my extras off onto you. πŸ™‚

Krista - Oh, we’ve got crows here too, Shruti! The wretches! They like to steal my baby geese for dinner!

Krista - That is my favorite one too, Tuula. πŸ™‚ Don’t they look so cuddly and sweet? πŸ™‚ We had wild boars on the farm where I lived in California! You’re right, they are definitely NOT cuddly. πŸ™‚

Krista - I agree, Linda! They make me smile all the time. πŸ™‚

Krista - Oh, thank you so very, very much, Bethany! You inspire me constantly and give me courage to KEEP ON GOING. πŸ™‚

Krista - Thank you so much, Alan! Yes! It is definitely appropriate! πŸ™‚ So glad you came by. πŸ™‚

Krista - Thanks so much, Will! πŸ™‚ Well, they aren’t so bad actually. The chooks make the most mess, but as long as I don’t have to live in it, I don’t mind. πŸ™‚
