We used to have a beautiful grove up on the top of our hill. It has been there as long as we have been there. Two years ago, a tornado whipped across the hill going directly through my wonderful oak grove. Most of the trees were uprooted and many others completely destroyed. Last year, a second […]
This week at farm has been very busy and Cowboy and I worked on checking off items on our spring “to do” list! We love spring as it is a great time to get caught up on all the things you could not or did not want to do in the winter cold. It is a time to get the […]
When attending elementary school we used to celebrate May1st with the annual Maypole dance. We actually used a pole and ribbon and wove the ribbon around the pole. The ribbon was usually in pretty spring colors. Other than that I really do not remember much about those festivities except that May 1st was a big deal in elementary […]
Cowboy had bulldozing done this week to clean out unwanted cedar. As a surprise, he had the bulldozer man clear me out a few hiking trails and new areas to explore. In the process they found a lovely grove of Red Bud trees that had been in a hidden wooded area. Now I have my own special secret grove […]
This photo is of our Bluebonnet field three years ago. We had an entire pasture full of flowers and they were absolutely stunning. We have had plenty of rain this winter so should have them this season, but I am not seeing them like I did a few years ago. It will be interesting to see what happens. […]
I loved this little group of cows. Over the years, we usually have had Black Angus or Black Angus Mixes. This group always made for great photo opportunities. They were easier to get a nice photo than the Angus are. This photo was taken on a beautiful spring day and the flowers were starting to bloom […]
This was my first horse and he was the sweetest animal. His name was Tony and he was gentle, patient and never ran off like our Shetland pony! He was such an affectionate horse and everyone loved him. I was 6 in this photo. After all these years, thinking of him brings tears to my […]
This is one of our pet Boer goats and he is adorable. He is a little bit hesitant in his contact with us, but gets better with time. All our goats let us love, hug and rub on them. They also let us worm them and give them any needed medications. Cowboy makes all of this […]
When I was six my daddy brought me a pony.
I guess you can officially call me the “Cow Whisperer”!
This little lamb is just minutes old. Cowboy was in corral/barn area and happened to look in pasture to see this little one come into the world. Most of our expectant mamas stay in the pens, but this mom, for whatever reason was in the pasture. The cool thing about this is that all the mama […]
We have lots of new little lambs to greet us this New Year. They have been coming early this year which means we must have had a few cool days in August. I have held and loved on lots of them this week! Hope their mama’s keep them warm this week!
Last weekend we had the warmest & most beautiful weather. We enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends and had way too much good food. After Thanksgiving we had friends come visit us at the farm. My good friend disappeared into the hills to paint all day as she is an artist. Her husband set […]
Took this shot last week of a few calves taking a rest break. Like any young animal they are very cute. At this age they like attention, especially if their mom’s are not right with them. When mama cows go to graze one mom always stays close to watch the young. Pretty good system. They seemed to […]
