It's National Farm Animals Day!

For those of you that do not know Don and I, we live on a farm...well, it's not such an active farm as it has been in the past BUT that's simply because we have scaled back on our daily duties in recent years.  Farm animals are time and labor intensive.  We always felt like it was our duty to make sure they were well taken care of, not a hit-or-miss thing.  We liked to see FAT cows in the pasture and happy playing calves. 

 

National Farm Animals Day focuses attention on the humane care of farm animals.  At this point in time, our "farm animals" consist soley of 12 hens and 2 roosters.  Even though, they are small in size and number, they are amazing!  My 12 hens lay 12 eggs a day!  They are super good layers... nice brown eggs with deep yellow, almost orange yolks.  I cannot use that many eggs and I have no desire to sell eggs SO we have a list of  people that we like to "bless" with fresh eggs. 

 

Those 14 chickens are a lot of fun!  I pull fresh Kale and Arugula from my greens bin and give to them.  They love the Kale but not the Arugula and I don't blame them. It is bitter!  We also save Spaghetti squash and Pumpkins in the fall to to give them something fresh through the winter to supplement their dried feed. 

 

Now, if you want to count Annie our canine family member, or CuCu, the feline one, as farm animals, you might say we have 16 farm animals but I believe Annie and CuCu might object to being called any kind of animal... they seem to believe that they are people! 

 

Happy National Farm Animals Day from our house to yours!  If you're a city dweller but wishing for farm life, give one of us a call at Integrity Real Estate Services in Idabel, Oklahoma. We often have rural acreage with or without residences for sale.  We know Farm Life.. we live on a farm that Don's grandfather bought in 1944 and we've been here for many years.  It's a way of life that we love.

Do you want the whole post with that one Old MacDonald joke—quite impressive in a great way. :

I don't see an Old MacDonald joke at all.... we live in a very rural area with farm life being a large part of our community.

Hello Judi - thank you for the announcement of National Farm Animals Day.  I like and am a bit envious of the description of the eggs you describe.  It sounds as if "good luck" is abundant at your farm.

Judi it is only fair that farm animals have their own day, since most pets seem to have their own day.

Thank you very much for telling us about this special day.

Your post reminded my of our visits to our family farm when I was young. However, we never lived on a farm.
