Well, that is what I call Miss Lucy most of the time. We have been so busy at the farm. Larger “fire lanes” are being cut at farm due to the continued heat and drought and fear of fire. It was 108 day before yesterday and 104 yesterday, but we finally got a cool front […]
So Cowboy and I were gone last week and when we got back to the farm guess what we found in our pasture? Here is a hint: We have two donkey’s and are boarding a friend’s donkey. When Cowboy drove in drive way he counted four donkey’s. A new donkey was in our pasture. He seemed […]
This title of this blog post about sums it up. It is the hottest, driest year we have had in around a century. Devastating can accurately describe conditions here at the farm. The hot winds have ripped the pastures of any moisture. No moisture = No grass = Unhappy cattle. Of course, our cows look all […]
Son #2 and wife just returned from a wedding on St. John island. They found this wonderful local dive in Coral Bay, St. John U.S. Virgin Islands. It was full of character. It is famous for it’s pizza and Bloody Mary’s. The reviews are great for this little restaurant. Best of all the decor is […]
I have a life long friend who is a very talented artist. She lives and paints in the beauty of New Mexico. She paints people, still life, landscapes, horses and longhorns. Her works are amazing. When visiting my blog, Julia, asked if she could try painting a few of our farm animals and of course […]
Miss Amy saying Good Morning! This makes every morning a good morning.
This is one of my friend’s new baby donkey. Her name is Patches and she is just about the cutest little animal I have ever seen. I pretty much think there is no way possible for any living creature to be as darling as this little girl. Notice the little tuft of hair on her […]
Shot a quick photo of this little cutie last week. Did not find out her name, but spent time petting and loving on her and she loved all the attention! All baby animals are adorable, but little donkey’s are just the cutest!
This has been a long time coming, but today we had to say goodbye to our beloved donkey, Emy. You only have to have farm animals to understand the depth of love one can have for any barnyard animal. We purchased Emy at an auction knowing she was in her senior years, but we could […]
This is our sweet donkey, Emy. She is the most gentle loving animal I have ever had. Rescued her from an auction barn knowing she was old, but our eyes met and I knew I had to give her a really good life. It is amazing how lovely these animals can be. They are very […]
The girls are my special friends. They are so amazing, so full of personality and ever so loyal. They are easy to love. They just want to be around us. They ask very little from us except for carrots and apples!
What a great weekend. Beautiful warm weather to bring on a big case of “Spring Fever”. Finally got those sages planted with a little help from my friends. Got lots of items on my to-do list accomplished. The vet came and worked on a sick goat and the Ferrier came to trim our donkey’s hooves. […]
