RIP dear Friday

Friday, May 19, 2017  Well I guess it's time I share a bit of sadness that Ive been keeping to myself. We lost our beloved kitten Friday last week. We found him last Thursday before Open Barn day and I couldn't handle any sympathy hugs which would have had me…

The ides of March

Wednesday, March 15, 2017  Nearing 60° today? Oh my! I need a few more days of warm and dry to be able to tackle the frozen mess in front of the barn but we're getting close. There is a slight hue of green appearing as the snow recedes and I must…

Friday March 3

Friday, March 3, 2017  We might see temps close to 40° today!  I'll feed some hay out on the snow this morning to get everyone a dose of vitamin D. When all the alpacas are out of the barn, the kittens Friday and Garbo think it's their playground in there.  They jump in…

Super Bowl?

Sunday, February 5, 2017  If you're into the Super Bowl today I hope your team wins! I need to figure out why the main barn cam isn't working. I have a feeling that one of the transformers was "fried" when snow melted all around it so I hope I can find a replacement part. It will be in…

Thursday, February 2, 2017  Well the verdict is in, Punxsutawney Phil did indeed see his shadow and predicts 6 more weeks of winter. lol  Happy Groundhog day! No matter what he saw we are guaranteed at least 6 more weeks of winter here. It's OK, the days are getting longer and that makes…

January 28, 2017

Saturday, January 28, 2017  Another sub zero morning here, but bright sun is expected today. It's amazing how much difference a sunny day can make!  I've spread hay on top of the snow so the girls will be outside waiting for more. They are eating that hay on top of about 2 feet of frozen snow, but the group…

Snowy Saturday

Saturday, January 21, 2017  It's snowing again and I expect it will continue most of the day. Please be careful if you're on the roads out there. I know the cam is not streaming this morning and I'll get out there asap to see what I can do to fix it. We'll…

A very special kitty!

Wednesday, January 18, 2017  Our kitty Friday just keeps me laughing. He seems to have personality bubbling out all over. It could be that he's the only boy cat I've ever had but he sure is entertaining. He has decided that he should have a ride from the haybarn to the girls'…

What a winter!

Thursday, January 12, 2017  More snow today!?!  Where will we put it?  I got several emails from people concerned for the animals. Just so you know, the animals are all great. It's the two old people who traverse between the barns and the house that you should be concerned about. LOL. Oh…

Jumping to conclusions

Tuesday, January 10, 2017  What would you think if you saw 2 cars arrive in a rather remote parking lot and exchange cash for 3 small vials? Well, that is exactly what happened yesterday morning as I met our vet to get some serum that she had spun to treat an eye infection in one of our girls.…

I’ll call this too cold!

Friday, January 6, 2017  I often check the alpaca cam during the day because it has a more close-up view than looking out my window. I got a little concerned yesterday when I checked and there was not one alpaca in sight anywhere! It's rare that they all go inside the barn but that is…

My Happy Place

Thursday, December 22, 2016  Where is your happy place?  Mine is a few steps from my house inside our main barn. I was late getting home last night and finished up feeding in the dark, but the barn is always comfortable and calm and ready for me when I get there. Dogs, cats and alpacas…

The missing kitty cat

Sunday, December 11, 2016  The order of feeding around here always starts with the youngest or most vulnerable. So the kittens, being young and without a mama to feed them got used to being fed early each morning. No problem for me, I liked seeing them each morning. But yesterday Friday didn't show up for breakfast.…
