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…

This Cat

Our barn kitten is the most amazing cat I’ve ever had. We love him so much, and so do the dogs. Bella was in the barn recovering from her spay surgery while Bloo recovered from hi neuter, and these two became fast friends.  Not only is Bloo a beautiful cat, he’s got a super deluxe…

My Girls

If you’ve read anything I’ve written you know I love my dogs. So when Animal Control called and said they had a dog whose chip traced back to me I only had one question. When can I pick her up? Bella was surrendered by her owner. She is 4 years old, from Mia and Al’s…

Fall Chores

It’s been rainy for weeks but today we have a lovely clear day. Time to finish things up before it gets too cold outside. It was time to rinse and dry the fleece I had set out to soak. The salt and sweat mix with water and make soap and act like a pre-wash. I…

Rookie Mistake

This guy, this awesome, well built, beautifully fleeced guy, should have been a champion. But no. Because I was so preoccupied with other things I took the wrong sheep into the ring. (Queue the sound of my head hitting the desk). July 22nd & 23rd I attended the 2nd annual Mat-Su Valley Fiber Festival. I…

Working Sheep

Ana has a little lamb… who follows her EVERYwhere.  Minnie loves her dog and follows her all around the pasture. The other sheep go off to graze but Minnie tags along with her big white dog.  Today Ana was helping tom with the sprinkler and Minnie was right with her, until she spotted me. There…
