Merry Christmas from all of us at the farm! We hope that you enjoy the holiday with family, friends and special pets. Hoping the amazing aroma of the holiday foods fill your home with the joy of the season! All of our cows, donkeys, goats send their unconditional love! That’s what it is all about! […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 knew it was going to be a bad day on Saturday because I lost my sunglasses. Little did I know what a bad day is. Saturday we went to give everyone farm treats only to find no goats. Searched for hours. We do not know how or why but our sweet little pet goats were […]
Unlike last year we actually had a little rain this spring and had pretty green fields which is a win-win for everyone. The animals love the nice fresh green grass. Same for donkey’s and goats. We have watched any remnants of grass slowly fade into brown grass and now everything has turned to dust and […]
Call me crazy, but these are what I asked Santa to bring me for Christmas. Many of my friends will think I have totally lost it, but all my agriculture friends will just smile. DRUM ROLL…. Santa delivered my Christmas a little early this year. I am the proud owner of two cement feeding troughs. […]
One year ago today we lost our friend and farrier in a tragic accident. We have housed an emptiness in our hearts this entire year. He was such a loving man and more importantly loved our animals. It is hard to find a farrier who will work on donkeys and goats, but he did, and they loved him. He […]
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 […]
Stopped on road to take a pic of this little goat family. They were so restful and all looked like they were smiling for me!
Goats not only have great personalities and make loving pet, but they just do the funniest and cutest things. Last summer we put a few heifer’s who were due to calve in the pasture with the goats. After the new babies came and grew a bit I put a little water trough in pasture for them in case they […]
Our cute Cowboy passed away last night. He really did have lots of personality and we will really miss him. He was a little shy, but sure loved his treats. He was called Cowboy because he looked like he had a little white saddle on him. We love you Cowboy.
We had snow flurries today and we will have our first big freeze tonight where it will drop to around 23 degrees. We wrapped all pipes last week, but still have one last pipe to do tonight. Nothing like waiting until the last minute. I knew we needed to go ahead and take care of […]
