I was doing dishes Saturday afternoon, looking out the kitchen window, when I saw a flash of a red tail on the other side of the fence and thought a rooster got loose. Then a second later, it came out from behind the brush, and it was a fox! It went all around the two … Continue reading Fox!
The neighbor called this morning. His father decided he wouldn't have a garden next year so wanted to remove his fence posts but was having trouble getting them out of the ground. He asked if Ted could use the tractor to do it after work. Unfortunately, Ted is on a business trip and won't be … Continue reading Driving home
Bindi, Cookie, and (their mama) Bessie The spiderwebs are everywhere on the fence and gates. I don't see any spiders down there, just gorgeous intricate webs. We're not tearing them down; it's free organic fly control! Looks like fall, y'all!

He said he knew if he didn't take her home, she'd get lost, and … Continue reading Hiking our farm today
It took him nearly all day, but he figured it out! I'm so proud of him! He had an audience all day. They're so curious! A little feed kept them away so he could get the fence fixed.
Ted did it! The corral pieces he ordered finally came in after four weeks of waiting, so we headed to Hillsboro on Saturday morning to pick them up. It was a straight over and straight back trip. Then it was time to set them up. It was a little harder than we thought it … Continue reading Setting up the rest of the corral

We forgot how much work it is to have a bull. We. Forgot. Chip quickly reminded us. It takes two people to move anything that requires opening a gate because if it's open, that bull is going through it. It takes two people to diligently watch him while the other climbs on and off and … Continue reading Naughty naughty Chip
