warty toads & marly goats.
we moved mean ol' marla to a free standing pen. she's been quarantined for the past month as we've been treating her for hoof rot and i'm afraid that's why she was given up for adoption. after weeks of hoof trimming and medicine, and only minor improvement, we've decided to put her out into a portable pen in the fresh air where she can be moved to keep her feet on clean dry ground. she seems to love the fresh grass by the lack of it that remains in her pen each day, but she still seems to hate people.
all this rain has spawned many a frog and toad. the ponds are full of frog eggs & tadpoles. here is one handsome toad that settled near the chickens.
