Meet our New {Friends}

We’ve been busy hauling wood chips/mulch. The county said we could have everything we wanted, so we’re making good on it. #WasteNot Ground cover is good stuff to have on hand for ground cover, weed control, or composting.

It’s, also, toe-trimming time, so we’ve busied ourselves getting all the hooves caught up.

Last time, I promised to include pictures of the new pasture residents.

This is Chocolate.

She’s not impressed with my picture-taking.



Meet Ginger (on the left) and Maryanne (on the right).

I might be channeling my inner Gilligan.



Meet the mother/daughter duo, Snickers and Milky Way.

I’ve made a lot of changes to the herd for next year. I’m focused on switching to great milkers–good-natured, high production–and adding some fun color to our mix in the field. We don’t raise show goats or registered goats (my sister does!), so I decided to have fun with it.


On the sheep side of the farm…

We’ve gotten another ewe for Mountain Man.


There he is… cheesing for the camera. He thinks he has fabulous neck hair.


Meet Marmelade!

That’s her. In that fashionable teal collar.


My peachicks are also starting to get some color on their necks.


And John Wayne is still happy to sit on my arm.

We’re going to have to get a falconry glove, though.

He’s got some sharp claws!



It’s been a good day, here on the farm.

Thanks for visiting, and come back soon. (:





Here’s this week’s giveaway.

You could win a killer {<—see what I did there?! (:}

Come in for some coffee and homemade plum jelly. My husband, Farmer Bill, made it. It’s the best in our part of Texas. I promise, between incubating peafowl eggs and bottle-feeding farm babies, I’m currently stuck in elsewhere worlds out the wahzoo. So, if you stick around a little while, you’ll get to join me on some of my adventures… plus chickens.
