What’s New at The Ranch

Wintertime Duck Quarters

As Fall sets in, Nick has been working hard winterizing at The Ranch Menagerie.  Each year the duck population at The Ranch Menagerie grows. This year their winter housing wasn’t large enough to protect everybody, so Nick’s been enlarging and improving their shelter.

Everyone’s home or stable or bed is being winterized in one way or another. This time of the year the animals need plenty of hay and straw. The dogs and cats homes and beds have to be insulated too, of course.

Fortunately the sheep, goats, and our mule have plenty of food and lots of good grazing land. This along with their feed will help to keep them warm and healthy even if the winter is harder this year. Of course a mild winter is always preferred!

The good news is the price of corn has gone down, and our eBay sales are up.

About mid-October, the sunflower fields near The Ranch Menagerie were still beautiful and bright. Now that it’s mid-November, they’re gone, not forgotten.
