Wow, this weekend that vision in my head was realized. Our farm looked like a gathering spot with kids running around crazy getting dirty from head to toe, a little gal working horses in the round pen, boarders coming and going, men setting fences, and everyone pitching in moving animals and carrying buckets of feed.

What a week on the farm! Those who live in the country know that chores are determined mostly by two things: money and weather. You must have both to get the job done. With the spring weather finally here we have been outside nearly every minute of every day working to accomplish some much needed […]

Well that didn’t work

In the infamous words of Rosanne Rosannadanna, “Never mind.” One pleasant evening later the horses did not get along and the family of three had to be moved back into Moo’s pasture.

Moo is getting bigger by the day and hungrier too. Having her around the house pasture has given her the chance to eat green grass but it also puts her within “breaking in” range every time someone opens the barn.

Oh my gosh, for the first time in three years we can work in the barn during early morning or evening hours without schlepping flashlights out there – […]

Since we never had Moo pee on a stick, we were pretty sure but not 100% that the AI “took”. Well last night we found out 100% – that girl is definitely preggers! Moo is completely freaked at the horses in the pasture and is now freaking out because there’s something moving inside her. Last […]

Oh good gravy, it’s SNOWING! After having 80′ days over the weekend we awoke to see 29′ on the TV report with a chance of snow this afternoon. Sure enough, big beautiful flakes are flying so thick I can’t see the field to the north or even to the edge of our farm. Hopefully it […]

I cannot believe it’s possible to be so busy that I literally don’t have time to sit for 10 minutes and update, but it’s certainly been the case for the past week. We’ve had visitors, goat buyers, boarders, and friends stopping by nearly every day which has just been wonderful! The rains caused Ed to […]
