    If it hadn't been storming and horrific, I'd have gotten a ton of photos, but I did get some.

    I came home with a couple of birdies and I'm really looking forward to getting more!!

    I want to live there. They have all these wonderful coops that are just like a chicken fairy tale, and huge runs with tons of room. Longhorn cattle and world class quarterhorses are everywhere you look, and I just stand with my mouth open every time I get there...thought I'd share a bit!
