I would like to introduce you to Molly another Beagle pup and a companion to Louis. Molly is the cutest little dog which no one wanted because she is currently suffering from a bout of Bronchitis! (..and so she wears a jacket when it's chilly!) She is fine during the day but in the early morning and again at night time she tends to cough a little. However after several visits to the local vet she is improving a lot. The vet told me not worry and Molly is on several medications which will ensure a speedy recovery! She and Louis are the very best of friends already and play together throughout the day and sleep together at night. I am currently trying to teach them both not to chase ducks and try to be kind to Izzie who now has two bundles of mischief to contend with!!
Driving into the farm the other day I was surprised in seeing quite a large bird sitting quietly on a post next to the lower lake. I drove slowly, it didn’t move and I came up next to it very close and put the window down…and it still stayed there right next to me and still didn’t move. I took a couple of snaps quickly without realizing that the flash was on which must have startled it as it gently flew over to the other side of the lake and settled onto another post.
I’ve looked through everything I can find on the web but cannot positively identify it only that it was most probably a juvenile and we are sure that it’s an Eagle because of the bright yellow bill and legs.
Wonderful to see but we have to be careful with our young Guinea Fowl, Fantail Pigeons, baby chickens and baby rabbits!
We very often see 3 tiers of Eagles in the sky above the farm but we have to frighten them away with small ‘Pop’ rockets to protect our smaller animals.
I hope that we get the opportunity to see this young bird again preferably sitting quietly on a post and not in the sky eyeing its next meal…or was this just a flying visit?!
Here’s a quick snap of the kids from the orphanage on their first day back at school. I was asked to post this as a means to thank all of our guests who have so kindly donated clothes, stationary items and offered their kind support to The Youth Charity Foundation.
A BIG THANK YOU!
from all of us!
