Pup-Date

Nothing to see here, move along. For 2 day’s we have monitored this girl ’round the clock, to no avail. She is acting ready, all the signs are there, yet no actual puppies have arrived. I think it could all just be an act, a ploy, to get me to spend all my time with…

Where does the time go?

It’s hard for me to believe summer is waning towards fall. I already dropped off exhibits for the fair and I’m contemplating which sheep to take and show as well. A sure sign that summer is almost over. I honestly can’t remember being this busy for the whole entire season before. Since the first of…

Solstice Babies

Stuff finally let her babies out to play. Lambing season 2018 starts off with a healthy pair of ram lambs. These little guys are curious and sweet and very very hungry. Stuff is a good momma and is taking excellent care with them.

Baby Watch

Baby watch 2018 has begun. Stuff is bigger than normal, and she has always had twins. My guess is about 48 hours. She’s had a little trouble with her parts bulging more than they should so we fixed a make-shift girdle to help give some support. Just look how wide this compact little body is!…

Chaos and Pandemonium

Roasting Chickens

We just finished up another batch of locally grown chickens. $3.50/lb plus a $5 processing fee.

MoosePatrol

I know it’s hard to see but I only had my phone and I couldn’t get too close. This yearling moose is hanging around the field behind our pasture. Last night he was charging the fence, striking at the dogs. Tonight he just has cranky face. Last night the dogs actively engaged him and they…

Bloo Cat

There are many theories about barn cats. Some say that it’s abuse to leave a cat in a barn but they don’t know me and they haven’t seen how much love this cat gets. We adopted this guy after he had been abandoned with his siblings in a rural area. He was young and beautiful…
