Blue Sky Farm

My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

Ducks moving day





What a fiasco.. Moving these two ducks to the big pond today. The saying "you can lead a horse to water."... may work for horses... but  theses two gave us a run for our money. With brooms in hand to herd them ( actually one ) because I caught one and carried her hoping the other  one would follow... NOT.. Finally releasing the one I carried  they both rushed into the bushes and tree. With coaxing they made it to their new playground. A pond full of tadpoles and frogs and bugs.. Buster helped willingly to wade out into the pond and got scolded.. I think the ducks will be much happier here and  it will cut  down on our feed bill too..
Dont you think this is a great place to play, live and eat?

They are so happy! Good job on the duck herding.

They look quite content. You have been a busy lady. Yes we need to get together to catch up.
