autumn

 

Here's "Autumn", one of our poultry protectors!  She is a Great Pyrenees, which is a breed of LGD (Livestock Guardian Dog).  We have been extremely lucky to have her.  She protects the Black Copper Marans flock in our 2 acre front pasture.  She has a keen eye for predators and even saved a flying song bird from a mid-air bomb attack from a falcon earlier this year. It really was the craziest thing.  Her bark must resonate throughout the property because we do not see predators, and have had minimal loss over the years.  🍀🍀
