Friends with an office in San Francisco gave us this wonderful gear. It’s the main hoisting shaft from an old street elevator.
The chicks in their new home for the next 6 weeks, the brooder hut. The red color comes from the heat lamp.
The baby chicks finally arrived so Tam went with me to the post office to pick them up. Twenty-five tiny little fluff balls less than one day old.
Monkey checking out the model of the Tall Barn. It’s just his size.
And of course, there’s barbecued chicken for all of the kids and parents. That’s Dominic, father, dairyman, neighbor, at the grill.
One of the many admirable things about the 4H is that the bigger kids teach the younger ones how to care and show for their animals. That’s the instructor on the left.
The Sonoma County Fair is coming up, so the local 4H is having a training and practice showing event in the San Antonio Valley. These kids are good.
In the late afternoon, from the top of Lizard Head Rock, the slanting light paints Dynamite Valley with a lovely palette.
The roof framework of the Tall Barn model takes shape.
