Wednesday August 16, 2017 I guess it's a good thing I was too busy with my grandson yesterday to listen to any of the news. It appears the sad excuse of a president that we have has again tried to blame "both sides" for the atrocities in Charlottesville.  There are no…

Oh oh

Wednesday, June 28, 2017  We had some wonderful visitors yesterday, and some of them had 4 feet. I have a friend who has been a dog trainer and breeder for 20 years and she happened to have a litter that she thought might warm some hearts here. She came to…

Wednesday May 3

Wednesday, May 3, 2017  When I was a little girl growing up in Chicago I could never find enough animals in my world. So it's to be expected that I'd offer my grandson everything I would have loved, right? Blue Moon Ranch is the kind of place I'd have loved to…

We ❤️ family.

Wednesday April 26,2017  Most of the snow melted by yesterday afternoon but more is on its way, not to worry. I'm glad our shearing day is not for at least another month. I'm sure the alpacas would do just fine, but it's too hard for me to watch my animals…

We’re white again ❄️

Tuesday April 25,2017  It's snowing and 30° with snow expected most of the day today. It looks like we have a bunch of powdered sugar coated alpacas out there, most chose to sleep out in the snow last night.  I'd love to put the outside cam on for you but the…

A magical place

Wednesday April 19, 2017  A dusting of snow greeted us this morning and all our fully fleeced pacas are pleased. More snow is in the forecast for next week, so we'll keep out shovels out just in case they're right. I hope to spend some time inside Yaya's Yarn Barn…
