Every day we are in awe with the view on the way to the village .. the green strip of trees you see at the base of this mountain is the little farming village where the farm is . if you go up to the right side of the mountain you come to the hot springs, and if you go to the left you come to the water falls, go one more mountain cut to the left, you will find Jengish and Emma's grain/ hay field, and up in that mountain is the cow barn that we provided a micro loan for, and where we will be keeping our cows as part of the payment plan. .. one day I will put up a little map.

Two workers are spending the night at the farm now . they are doing a great job. at this rate, there will be no trouble having all the foundations repaired by winter . The only thing slowing them down is the little ducks from next door.. all day they are pestering them , checking out everything they do and everything they touch.. actually , I think he likes it .
We found a water feeder today for the chicken run , they were about $5 so we got just one and will wait to get more as needed as the farm grows. It hangs from the rafters so that it will stay clean
The geese spent the whole day in the water bucket out side today , Jengish moved the food tray over so that they could eat and drink at the same spot , not relay intending for them to do this ... I think Mr goose thinks he is at the spaw.
They guys are almost finished harvesting the sugar beets now. They have left a lot of tops. This is great food for the rabbits, so we started bringing them in to pile up in the corner of the barn to feed for the next couple months. The rabbits see us with them and come running.
Not all the animals are at the farm.. Bekah thinks that the bunnies should have some home time with her. so she will take turns bringing a different one home each time she goes... this deal is to be renegotiated on a daily basis.
