Jonah loves chore time. He loves to help. He visits the chickens when I open their door to top up their feed and water and gather the eggs.

And he loves to poke his nose through the fence at the ram and wethers, who are now resident in one of the side yards at the barn - away from the ewe flock for now. They get a little bit of grain so they gain weight ahead of breeding season. Once breeding starts rams will often go off feed almost entirely as they tend to their duties - so I like to beef them up in advance.

The ewes come into to another of the barn yards at night, because of coyote pressure. When I take them out to pasture in the morning Jonah stays up at the barn and chats with the rams...
