Farm Friend Friday #7-On The Run


Well, hello farm friends, hope you have had a lucky St. Patty’s Day. I felt lucky with the gorgeous weather and all. We reached the low 70s today with lots of sunshine and blue skies. Can’t ask for more than that. I also think I’m very lucky this week because all my wonderful blog buddies sent me their prayers, support and encouragement after we said goodbye to 25 of our wonderful chickens. You all are just the best! We are much better today and the farm is getting back to a normal routine- except for a few pitched battles by the roosters trying to fill the power vacuum. Blessings to you all.

Now, for Farm Friend Friday we have a special movie clip for you. We like to call it “On The Run.” It reminds me of Don Knotts and Tim Conway, although the stars of this short film are lesser known actors. We do apologize for the film quality but couldn’t resist. Turn up the volume, click the arrow and enjoy.




We hope you got a kick out of our silly guineas, Jekyll and Hyde, filmed today here at Verde Farm.

It’s time for Farm Friend Friday #7 and we hope you will join us. It’s quite simple:

1) Click on the button below
2) Follow the directions
3) Link your post back to Verde Farm so others can easily find all the great posts shared
4) You can use the Farm Friend Friday button in the right hand sidebar or a simple link in your post works too.

Let the farm fun begin...

Country Gal said...

Oh my I laughed so hard. We used to watch our roosters chase our hens around like that when I was a kid on our farm, it was a riot. Now we watch the Doves chase eachother around in the same way. We make funny skits out of it. Great post and music to go with the video ! Have a wonderful day.

Hugs- Tete

That's hilarious! And 70 degree weather?! We have another full day of rain headed our way in California. So ready for the 70's!

KathyB. said...

Aren't they fun to watch ? Who needs T.V. when you have this kind of entertainment?

Joe said...

Looks like the guineas really liked the spring weather and are getting in shape for summer :).

Love the guineas. :)

Tamara said...

That is hilarious!! They got plenty of exercise. Great video. Thanks for sharing as it made my morning!

dogsmom said...

Those two don't know if they are coming or going, do they?

Happy you are having some nice weather. We finally hit the 50s briefly, with a breeze (omen of things to come,) long enough for me to be out manure moving.

Not exciting enough to post about. I will join in next week.

Leslie @ Farm Fresh Fun said...

Awesome video! Mine do the same round our fenced garden. It's hysterical. No thrown rakes or yells will stop the pursuit.... I often worry but guess they work it out. Thank you again for this super farm party. I really look forward to lookin round and learning at all the great blogs. Glad you're feeling better.
hugs,
Leslie

Guineas are simply silly. :)
I'm sorry about you having to pare down your chicken flock. It's always so hard!

Beverly said...

Ha! Amy, too funny. I have three of those crazy guineas that keep me in stitches!! Thanks for sharing. The music was just perfect with the action!!

thecrazysheeplady said...

Oh. My. Gosh. That is HILARIOUS!!!

Kelsie From Our Country Home said...

Oh what a funny video, it certainly gave me a good chuckle.

I am sorry you are feeling so sad over the sale of your chickens...I know I will be the same way once we are in the your position....It is the nature of the farm life unfortunately.

I have already linked up my Lost Homes post today, sharing the old barn before it is torn down...I will be back later though to share more wisteria on "Our Country Home" blog, just as soon as the toddler gives me time to finish with the photos.

Blessings Kelsie

Lol And do you bill that as an "special entertainment feature" when people come to stay at Verde Cottage?

:D still chuckling...

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

The video is so funny! When my boys had way too much pent up energy I used to tell them "go run around the house as fast as you can 3 times!":@)
