Fussin’ over the wee ones

Thursday, July 23, 2015  Our evening thunderstorms always make me concerned about any of the newest babies wandering out of the barn and getting soaked, so I have been putting little coats them at night. Why all the fuss you might ask?  Well, the first 5 days of that baby's…

A reality check

Tuesday, July 7, 2015   I posted this on our Facebook page yesterday, but thought perhaps I should post it here also in case our readers don't check Facebook. Somewhere I once read these words "The allure of farming has little to do with broken equipment and dead animals". I think…

Big, black and beautiful

Friday, July 3, 2015   And we have yet another baby! I knew Miranda was close when she spent the night in her favorite dusting hole. Sure enough, just as I started to vacuum the pastures yesterday morning, she started her labor. I'm really a 'hands off' labor assistant, so mostly…

A real cute photo :)

Wednesday, July 1, 2015   Sometimes when I go out into the pastures with my camera I take a hundred shots and delete most of them.  Then sometimes I come in to the computer and download a few and eliminate clutter from the back ground, change the lighting, etc.  But once…

Monday, November 10, 2014 The pasture was vacuumed in the nick of time, it's drizzling as I type and more precipitation expected this week.  It's grandparent day at our grandson's school today so of course we'll be participating in that.  Then back to the ranch for chores and feeding.  A…
