How They've Grown!

I was only away one week, but, my, how the Berks have grown! It is quite amazing for just one week. Even Runty looks bigger and brawnier. Their feed is being heavily supplemented by vegetables right now. They adore any of the summer squash, enjoy a good cucumber, they're pretty content with hail-damaged apples from our tree, while potatoes - not their favourite. They also, now and then, get a good armful of the weeds Farmer Boy has cut down; they relish the alfalfa, pass on the thistle and just nose around the ragweed. It's good to see them gallop and play in their pasture - no small pens here!
