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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
There is simply nothing better than mama’s and babies…
Lazy Hazy Days of Summer… This farm momma was very lazy…
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.
We have an abundance of rabbits this year. Jackrabbits everywhere and a few cottontails here and there. Love those ears.
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. […]
Don’t you love this happy little guy? His name is Fisher and he is such a sweet goat. Love this smile!
I love spring at the farm. We are always super busy with all our spring projects. Cleaning barns, shredding pastures, planting, watering and vaccinations for all the cows, donkey’s and goats. Love all the little calves being born. The anticipation of wildflower season nearly drives me crazy! Cleaning the grill to cook-out. Waiting for that special […]
There was a thief at the farm yesterday. This sweet mama was nursing her little brown calf while the little white calf decided he did not care where his milk came from. He decided to sneak a snack! Pretty cute!
I never ever tire of sitting and watching the calves nuzzle their moms and get their dinner. It is a tender moment each and every time. Really, I could spend an entire day watching the calves play, nap and eat. Earlier this week I stretched out on the chaise lounge and watched as a few […]
Cowboy and I are on a roll and I could not be happier. We have tackled spring projects early this year with gusto. I think we just may complete our projects before the spring/summer heat moves in. You cannot imagine how the heat and wind wear things out here at the farm. The elements are […]
Our January has been dark, gloomy and cold. That means I go into hibernation and for the most-part and begin my ritual of spring cleaning inside the house and poor cowboy takes care of everything outside in the cold! With the cold weather comes extra responsibility such as mucking the donkey and goat barns, spreading fresh hay […]
