Spring Calves

We have lots of new beautiful babies at the farm. This one is especially special. Her mama is sick and unable to feed her. She is now with a new mama who lost her calf. We are crossing fingers for a match made in heaven! Newborn cow babies are so very precious. I get goosebumps […]

Many Faces of Orphan Andy

Our Orphan Andy is just the best little donkey. He has a personality as big as the world. I just wish he could speak in human words because he would have so much to impart to us. Our feelings are strong as he lost his lovely mom at 20 days old and we have loved […]

Cow Babies Are Back

The “baby” pasture has been very busy this week! I think when I counted yesterday there were around nine or ten new babies. What a happy time here at the farm. The babies give us much joy and I spend lots of time just standing and watching the fun. Nothing cuter than little cow babies […]

It was a lovely weekend at the farm. It has been cold and rainy for much of the last couple of months. That makes it so much NOT fun to enjoy hiking, working and enjoying the animals. Last week I cleaned the farmhouse so I would be ready for the two nice days predicted by […]

96 Takes the Cake

96 takes the cake or… in this case the baby. 96 is not the friendliest cow at the farm, nor does she really like me. 96 , however, is a GREAT mama. She took great care of her calf and was highly protective and loving. Before Christmas her baby went away to another ranch to […]

And Now… The Undertaker

My previous post introduced “Three Feathers” and everyone loved him! The “clean-up” bull has now arrived at the farm and his name is “Undertaker” and all I can say is… WOW. He is beautiful and huge. He also is very even tempered even though some of you might think he looks a bit fierce. He […]

Prickly Pear Cactus

Cactus at the farm is…well cactus. We have too much of it and it is constantly a thorn in our side. (Pardon the Pun!) In the spring it has very pretty yellow flowers. In the fall is has beautiful pink “fruit” and nothing is prettier than all the plants with the varying degrees of pink […]

Wordless Wednesday Weeds

Every late spring these weeds pop up in the pastures. Do not know the proper name. Beauty can be seen in everything-even a simple weed.

Those Ears

We have an abundance of rabbits this year. Jackrabbits everywhere and a few cottontails here and there. Love those ears.

Farm Flood

After a few years of dry tanks and continued drought we had a surprise this weekend. Rain was in the forecast and we were really hopeful that we would receive a little moisture. We always feel like we are in the “Farm Bermuda Triangle” where everyone around us gets a shower, but we do not. […]
