A Year Ago Today in Photos

This is Cathy and Newman. Cathy is Newman's mom. She was a very sneaky hen and hid a nest somewhere that we could not find. She hatched 7 chicks and, as statistics would have it, three were males.

Arturo is the father of at least one of the chicks Cathy hatched. You can see his likeness. Arturo died this year. He was the best rooster ever. Diplomatic. Benevolent. Popular. If you met him and saw how he interacted with both the hens and roosters, you'd say the same things. The roosters respected him - he never had to fight to assert his leadership. Never. The hens adored him. He courted the ladies (which is very unlike many roosters). He was special.

Ah, Sadie. The Best. Cow. Ever. I should trademark that for her.
