I can’t believe it’s going to be October next week. The time is flying by. The Team is preparing for cooler temperatures, getting winter supplies ready to deploy as needed in the coming months.
This is when the bears start eating LOTS of food. Our walk-in freezer is reorganized to accommodate increased bear food. Five pounds of nuts were dropped off for the bears earlier this week.
October is when physicals happen for most of the Farmyard animals, so we’ll have updates in the coming weeks on them. This week’s vet rounds included Animal Care Specialist Rob working with Dr. Vanderford. A few pictures below of their time together.
We’ve also been gathering up needed stumps for the animals. Our current stash had to be tossed out since they started to rot and became a great home for ants. We’ve gotten four so far, and I am off later tonight to pick up a bunch more.
I’ve got a few items to share that make me smile… You know the deal: in addition to staying safe and healthy, we need to find joy and gratitude.
Last week for Rosh Hashanah I visited with family like never before. A whirlwind drive, no hugs or house entering, but apples, honey, round challah, and seeing family in person was wonderful.
Finally, one of our regular and loyal volunteers, Dan, came by to visit. He’s waiting to return until more safe to do so, but he got his own private visit tonight to check things out.
