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. […]

Cow Cute

One of my friends recently traveled to Austria and Germany. Of course I asked her to take photos if she bumped into any cows! She sent me lots of cute photos, but these German cows are the two cutest girls I have ever seen. It appears they were very good natured and happy to be photographed. This […]

Spring At The Farm

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 […]

Wordless Wednesday- Milk Thief

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!

Got Milk?

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 […]

Pretty Babies

Last week this momma cow was babysitting another new mom’s baby and had a baby of her own right there while she was babysitting! Her baby is the one in foreground and it is about 30 minutes old. The other little baby was about 12 hours old. The second photo is of her baby the next […]

It’s All About Cowboy

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 […]

Mr. Brown and Fisher

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 […]

Wordless Wednesday- Jeff The Goat

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 […]

Donkey’s Grazing

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 […]
