Moving, neighbors, and tenants

A couple of notes about Moving, the Neighbors and the current tenants.

The Moving

Moving is a stressful operation even when everything goes smoothly, and the tension goes up when the rails start to slip. But it’s done and we arrived in one piece… mostly!

Neighbors

On a short walk yesterday I discovered some of the neighbors. They are too far away to be heard, and I can sort of see them from the end of the driveway.

And the neighbors across the road. Although they are itinerant, as the farmer moves them from field to field.

This morning I took a little stroll with the camera to capture the mist. The mist was not as interesting… so I will have to try again. But one of the local weavers was busy.

Tenants

When I turned around the tenants were waiting for me.

There are 7 altogether and they are afraid of humans. I am working on feeding and touching them. At least enough to capture for spaying and neutering, as well as some basic inoculations. I know both of the orange tigers are male, (only one is in the picture). The 3 dull orange and white patched kittens are friendliest, (center 3 white/orange)with the 2 brighter orange and white patched kittens (bookending the center four), are the shiest of the bunch. I don’t think they are all from the same mom, but certainly the same pop!!!

One of the neat things about moving and neighbors is getting to know them. Now you have a little view of the bigger neighbors. I have had a chance to meet some of the smaller neighbors too, and some are breathtaking! I’ll share them next time.

More Later! Beth

  1. What a fun bunch of new neighbors!

    1. Good Morning Jean! Not sure about the fun part yet. One of the ones from across the road visited the pond since we moved in… left a little something behind. Its not a bother… until they eat the garden!

  2. So far it looks like your neighbors are friendly! I hope the move and unpacking is smooth and you enjoy the new place.

    1. Shasta the goats were very friendly, the cows are not quite sure about humans, especially the young ones. Although several are very curious. Not curious enough to come close yet, though. Since I posted they have been moved to another field. They’ll be back though. We are enjoying everything, so far!

      Thanks for stopping by. Beth

  3. You have the BEST neighbors!!

    1. Deb sure hope we see some less domesticated neighbors too. A heron was spotted in the cows pond, which is visible from the yard. Going to have to keep a better watch… for it. I’m sure we will see some other critters too.

      Thanks for reading!!!

  4. My grandfather had cows. I love them. What great neighbors you have. Hopefully the tenants become more tame.

    1. I’ve never had a cow… pigs, yes! and yummy too!! Chickens, ducks, horses, sheep and a goat or two… all pets. The ducks all had names… for the holiday they were supposed to be on the table “Christmas”, “Thanksgiving”, and “Easter”. They all lived a long life!
