Everything is better when friends help... Jake and Johnny, 7/31/2015 ...even farm chores!
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
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
DG's bandage showed bleeding through it, and I was concerned about bacteria and infection so I called the vet's office this morning. They were great about getting her in right away.

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
