Pricilla - bell of our ball.

After yesterdays freezer, today is turning out to be very different, very mild this morning. The pigs seem to be enjoying their supplemental feeding, and the grain bin is not emptying quite as fast.

Today I’m introducing one of the cooks’ favourite animals – she brought it home, I had nothing to do with this one! Her name is Pricilla; she is an Angora cross Nubian cross Boer goat (I call her an Afro Nubian). She’ll eat anything, her favourite food is -anything, and, she’ll listen to anything as long as it’s loud. She escapes from her paddock all the time, runs around with the sheep all the time, and, trashes the cooks’ garden all the time.

Her escaping got so bad that I’ve had to put a cow bell around her neck so I know where she is. In response to this act of utter malice, every night she parades up and down outside our bedroom window ringing her bell. But that’s ok – the cook can’t hear it over my snoring!
