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 […]
I am a bad “mama” as I do not think I ever officially introduced our new goats we purchased this last summer. Mr. Brown and Fisher were show goats and we purchased them from the kids who showed them at their local stock show. They grew up together and are the best of friends. They just […]
Jeff is our old man and we are crazy about him. All the animals love Jeff. He is friend to all the goats and donkeys. From the day Orphan Andy (donkey) lost his mom, Jeff has served as his “mother”. Andy sleeps next to Jeff. Jeff is a sweetheart and we really love and enjoy him. Such […]
Beauty nearly every single evening. “The brightness of the day, The crimson of the sky, How fast they fade away!” C. F. Alexander (Taken from an old vintage postcard)
Here are a few headshots of the little donkey’s. They have been enjoying grazing green grass in our corral. We use water sprinklers at night so the donkey’s and goats will have a little green grass. Our pastures have been very dry this summer and this is a nice treat for them. Patty and Lilly […]
Sweet Lily is a really cute baby donkey. Cowboy happened to have his camera ready when she made some really funny faces yesterday. We are finding out she not only is sweet and shy, but she has a grand and adorable personality. We love her more every single day. She has joined baby Andy, baby […]
I love anything hearts and the farm has way more cactus than we need. Son #1 and his family had a farm campout a few weeks ago and they found a pretty heart cactus on their nature hike. Next search for hearts at the farm- rocks. We have plenty and bet we can find one!
It has been a busy spring with lots of new calves which we really enjoy having around the farm. Unless you are around cows you cannot imagine that they actually have personalities all their own. I love being around the cows and you quickly learn who is friendly and happy to see you. I love […]
We had a Christmas birth at the farm! This sweet mama gave birth to a darling little bull. Cowboy found mama in the birthing pasture having a bit of trouble. Mama was moved to one of the barns where she had a little help with the birthing process. Mama and baby are both doing great. […]
We have a friend with a great personality and she gives fabulously fun parties. We call her the party queen because her parties are not your average party. This September we were lucky to be included for her latest party. In part, her invitation read: “Come roster and hen to Little Pecker Liberation Day and Chicken […]
Love her expression and wonder what she was thinking. It is like she was taking care to make a good pose for me. You just never know. She had her calf the next day so now she is a busy mom.
Yesterday was a day full of mixed blessings. I will not be sharing how everything proceeded, but I am so very happy to tell you that I was able to find our sweet Blanco and Jeff. When I drove to pick-up destination I was greeted by two happy goats. They immediately gave me more nudges and kisses than any one person […]
I love our little tanks in the spring and early summer when they are full and abundant in their simple beauty. The last few summers have turned these tanks (ponds) into muddy messes hardly worthy of any mention. Their purpose is to give needed water to the livestock which they do until the continued heat […]
