The early riser…

There is a new member of the security team here at the farm named Eliot, a jack russell/border collie mix, who hails from Brooklyn, NY.  Though he has been with us since December of 2011, it is only now that he is truly engaging in the daily life at the farm… And that means when the birds start chirping at 5 am so, too does Eliot!  As the misty morning haze gave way to the early light over the horizon, little Eliot was checking all stations in the back of the farm house.  His mentors, Felix and Fanny, were still sound asleep on the porch.  We like to imagine that the two pointers ( F & F) are German and therefore believe in not wasting time and energies, no doubt see his tearing around so early in the morning as a youthful folly.  It was interesting to see Eliot keep coming back to the porch as if to report on his detail but the other hounds were not having any of it. When the rounds were done, the three amigos slept together on their beds in the corner of the porch, patiently waiting for the farmers to emerge from slumber…

And so begins the day.
