Spring is in the air ...

Spring is right around the corner on the calender but I do believe it has arrived
and made itself at home here at Old Paths. We rejoice in the passing of the winter and enjoying the gorgeous warm weather - I know it is a reason to worry about what summer will look like since we have 80's in late March but for now I just choose to dive head first into the glory of these days and worry later.
So today just a few snapshots of what spring is like here at our farm .... while it is the busiest time of the year with workload not doubled but tripled for all of us, there are so many moments to treasure - I try to find them, isolate them, caress them and hold onto them, draw strenght from them and use them to soothe my tired body :)
Zia's "Monsters" as we effectionately call Zia's triplets are growing like weeds. Here are Cleopatra and Calamity basking in the sun and you can clearly see Calamity's spots turning lighter, she now has a full white undercoat ... I won't be able to hold off shaving that girl much longer !! Promise you before and after pictures when I do :)
Babies are as carefree as ever, full of energy, with full tummies and absolutely no worries for tomorrow .... and did I say energy ??
Here is the gang in their current composition - with babies going to their new homes and others coming, my kid group is bound to be changing for a while until I just have my keepers. Part of me wishes I could keep them all and watch them grow up.
And last year's babies walking around with udders on them - last year they were my kid crop and now they have babies of their own running around :) Here is Velvet and Harvest in their post kidding figures - I am happy to see they kept a lot of their body capacity even after shedding the baby weight.
