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 […]

February Busy Month At Farm!

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 […]

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 […]

Cattle Call

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 […]

Christmas Bull

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. […]

Little Pecker Liberation Day

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 […]

Wordless Wednesday: That Face

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.

Goat Love

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 […]

Monday Memories

Growing up on a ranch was the best thing ever! The positives always outweighed the negatives. The only real negative from my view was the lack of playmates. There were no kids close by. The flip side of that was, as a little kid, you learn very quickly to make your own fun. My siblings and […]
