Tuesday November 14, 2017  It looks like we'll have a bit more time for winter preparations around here as the weather continues to be dry and mild.  I know the skiers are praying for snow but we can use the extra week or two.  The pastures need a bit of work…

Sunday November 12, 2017  Spending 8+ hours in a car with 2 of my most favorite people in the world was such a delight yesterday. We laughed, we cried, we shared many memories of my mom and we took in some of the expansive beauty of southern Utah.  We all agreed…

Monday November 6, 2017  We're seeing a bit of snowfall this morning and the frosted mountains look beautiful.  I know the cam is down this morning, but all parts are working here, so it must be an issue with the server in Wisconsin.  Let's hope it is resolved soon.   I've…

Saturday October 14, 2017   Today we'll be delivering two of our girls to their new home. It's always kind of bitter sweet when we do. I'm happy for new owners and their enthusiasm but I do miss each and every one we sell.  After we get back we have shoppers…

Thursday October 5, 2017  Well I published our next "learn to knit" class on the Blue Moon Ranch Facebook page and it sold out in hours! Perhaps there really are a lot of people who want to learn to knit? Or maybe they've heard that I serve my favorite pumpkin bread…

Sunday October 1, 2017  It was a perfect Saturday with just enough time between our knitting class and our tour group to get the animals fed. I loved seeing people learn to knit and later Scarlett the alpaca ambassador was giving hugs freely to our afternoon visitors.  What more could…

Friday September 22, 2017  We woke up to a white reminder that winter is not very far away! For Belle the puppy and Bogart the kitten this is the frist snow they've ever seen. Bogart is still curled up between hay bales in the hay barn but Belle is extremely…
