The Spectacle at Harmony Homestead

The Goats were taken by surprise one recent Sunday evening. A blue truck came into the paddock, unannounced .... what is going on here?

This was highly unusual . The most popular guess was that this was a very abundant delivery of a food source. Perhaps some new hay, or some exotic grains?

It required two strong men to carry. One of them did not look particularly happy about the situation.

Two strange creatures were released!

One had fluffy feet? Are those slippers?

This spectacle was highly unusual. The goats remained in a state of disbelief and wonder.... what are these things?

Their fleece was not like anything they had every seen........

They have since come to know the new barnyard friends... We have added a Rooster and a Hen to our menagerie. The hen is a RI Red, and the Rooster is a mix... A RI Red, with some sort of chicken that has feathery slippers:)
His name is Moe, named by my great niece, Kaylee Rose, aka, Goldilocks:)
We haven't named the hen yet..

Moe....(aka Moe-zart.)

I will have a contest. Name that hen with a musical name, and lucky winner will win an ounce of wonderful pygora fleece, donated by the Harmony Homestead Herd. I will announce the winner on the Harmony Homestead Face Book page.

Use your imagination!
