Trip to the little VA Air Museum

A couple of weekends ago, we took a break and went to the little Air Museum in Richmond.

Was very nice that the interactive devices worked!  
Above, DH is flying a small plane.

And DS tried out the much more complected F-18 simulator, he did quite well.

Dyfra is shedding!

Wonderful DH helped me curry Dyfra out the other day, as she is shedding her summer coat.
In the photo below, if you look closely, you can see all the fur scattering in the wind. LOL

Am also trying to keep her mane braided, to help her keep cooler.

The new Ewe is settling in well ~~

The new ewe, one in the middle, is settling in well. 
I am slowing getting her hooves trimmed normally. Just do not understand why people get animals and do not take care of them properly. 
Since it is so dry here right now, I am having them mow the round pen during the day.

Pad for the Pressure Tank poured and our First eggs~

The pad for the Pressure Tank housing has been poured. Still waiting on it to be framed.
Can see Nari has already put her paw prints in it, and that green Dragon Fly, that has a beef with her, stops for a visit.

Our first two eggs,  pretty interesting because most of the breeds I have had in the past, take about 6 months before they lay. 
These are mostly production breeds and started laying at 3 1/2 months. Small eggs, but it is just the beginning.
