In the Barnyard

FranklinA couple of years ago, one daughter and her family moved to a small farm in Franklin, Tennessee.  It is halfway between Rockport and Houston, so it’s a perfect overnight stop on the third night of travel

FranklinNow, I’m not sure I’m a farm girl, but it is fun to take in all the activity in the barnyard.    How all those two and four legged critters know when its feeding time is beyond me, but when they see the girls step inside the gate, a mad rush ensues.  What is really funny is that the different species hang with their own giving real meaning  to the saying “Birds of a feather flock together”.

FranklinThe same is true of the sheep.  They stay close to one another

Franklinand follow their shepherds wherever they go.


I couldn’t get enough of the sheep.  They are so affectionate with each other,

Franklinand their sweet faces would steal anyone’s heart.

FranklinI’m told we are having farm raised turkey for Thanksgiving,

Franklinand it looks to me like they may be hatching a plan to avoid the chopping block.

FranklinThey may have a hard time outrunning this gal

Franklinwhich means Thanksgiving dinner will be the one that doesn’t get away.

FranklinAll this activity is a bit much for Lucy who looks down on it from her high perch.

FranklinAs for Aslan, he’s on the outside looking in wanting to be part of the action.  With his energy that would cause total chaos!

FranklinIt’s tempting to linger to take in the natural beauty of the farm, but hit the road we must.  

FranklinAs we sneak down the stairs hoping to leave quietly, we find Super Daughter in the kitchen scrambling up some farm fresh eggs.  Now, that is a loving and delightful surprise.

FranklinSpeaking of eggs, the chickens are the girls’ responsibility.  Eggs are plentiful, and the girls have built a customer base for all the extras.  Pretty enterprising, wouldn’t you say?

Until next time through, that’s it for barnyard happenings.  There’s no telling what changes will occur there between now and then.

i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind

    The farm experience! Nothing like it in the whole wide world!!! I just love the way you got such terrific shots that really capture the feel. The nuzzling sheep…priceless!!!

    Those eggs would be a HUGE hit here in the area where I live! There are a lot of people who love the “gourmet” and fresh/natural products so much that they’re willing to pay almost any price! The way these eggs are packaged is just way fabulous!!!!! They look almost like jewelry or fancy soaps!
