Another tribute...

Today's photo is of our Muscovy drake, Jake the Drake, playing in the spray of water from a leaky hose. This was a frigid day in January with the wind blowing gales, which explains the icicles all over him! He didn't care. He just wanted to play in the water, no matter the weather. I hope that there is water where he is now. Yesterday Jake the Drake died. He left behind many memories from the 9 years that he was with us. Below is a photo from last summer as he helped his mate escort their ducklings across the horse pasture...

Let's hope for a really big lake and lots of female Muskovy drakes, wherever Jake is...

I have just discovered your blog and the farm where you live.

I am astonished to as many see animals in a farm in the USA.

Long life for your blog

So long

Poor ole Jake. He had a nice long life with you all though.
How fun to find someone who like penning, barrel racing and horse stuff. I don't do so much anymore but my daughter and grand-daughter do. Nice blog you have. MB
