She figured out she's tall enough to eat directly out of the tall feed can when it's full. LOL
This squash plant came up by the garage as a volunteer. I had both pumpkins and zucchini donated to my chickens last year, and I have no idea which one this is. I just left it alone. It's had lots of flowers, and the vines are big and strong, but nothing has come of it. … Continue reading Busy bees
Bessie gave me a heart attack
I was coming home from dropping Sahara off at band this morning, and I noticed Beef (unusually) standing a ways off from Bessie, and Bessie was off by herself, standing over what looked like a big brown lump setting in the dirt. I couldn't see it very well, but the closer I git, I could … Continue reading Bessie gave me a heart attack
She needed a vet!

Plan for a stress free holiday by gathering gift ideas … Continue reading Farm Queen Visits Rural King
Supervisor and crew
Look closely: that speck of white between the tractor and cattle is Cooper. No matter what Ted is doing, he has a crew that just stands around, watching him work. Same thing with Cooper, the little supervisor: he loves to hang out and watch. They make the perfect crew and supervisory team!
She has a forever home!
The puppy has a forever home now. She'll be with Ellie and Ashley!
We puppy proofed the living room and kitchen. Sahara said it's like having a little baby that can walk and reach everything and puts it all in her mouth (yes, that's EXACTLY what it's like, Sahara!). A piece of paper, a rubber band, a Bobby pin, shoes, toys, houseplants, dustpan - if it was on … Continue reading Puppy antics
