Above is Kitch. He is the older of the three male horses and the most shy. Though you'd never know it from this picture. As soon as I brought out the camera he started posing.
The painted horse is Sasha, one of the girls. I can't recall the brown horses name. Sasha is a sweetie and always came over to get some attention when I was bringing out hay or filling their water.
This regal guy is a Muscovy duck. He also liked to follow me around while I took care of the chickens, baby chicks, and the roosters. Muscovy ducks don't really quack they sort of make a wheezing/hissing noise.
These are two of the four Runner ducks. They don't waddle. They just hold their long necks up high and run around the yard all day. They were hilarious to watch. When I first pulled my car into the driveway, 4 of the ducks kept running in circles around quacking.
On the sides are a couple of the roosters. To the left is one named Roosty. You can't quite tell how big he is from this picture.
The patchy guy on the right is about 1/3 of Roosty's size.
To the left is a pic of some of the girls running around after I let them out of the coop which keeps them safe at night.
To the right is a cool little chicken. Notice the fluffy feathers on her legs and feet. I think she is a Silkie.
There were two geese parents wandering around. This is their nest which is under the rabbit cage in one of the sheds. I didn't get a photo of them because the male got rather cranky whenever he saw me because he was protecting their eggs.
Since I wasn't at home, I had plenty of extra time to cook. Unfortunately, I did a pretty poor job of taking photos. Some friends came up to visit on the farm and cooked up a some pineapple tofu curry. Another night I baked teriyaki tofu. For breakfast a I made pancakes with egg replacer a couple of times.
When I stopped at WF in Portland, I picked up the latest copy of VegNews which has some VCTOW recipes. I cooked a couple of batches of cupcakes to share with people at the office or with my friends who visited. I took photos of the Jelly Donut cupcakes, but forgot to take pics of the chocolate almond ones. The batter from the donut cakes is amazing. I swear it tastes better than the finished product.
The first picture is of the cupcakes in the pan. The second is with a dusting of powdered sugar before taking them into work.
