Our first calf of the 2008 season

Thursday, February 28th, 2008

Yesterday, we had our first calf of the season…. I told you just the day before we were due to start having calves. He was a little male calf, born to a first year heffer. She had a normal birth, and everything at home is fine. Frank and Rach, […]

What’s on the horizon for us….

Wednesday, February 27th, 2008

This is such a cool time of year - we are just now beginning to thaw out of the long winter - and we’re now keeping a real close eye on our remaining hay - knowing that sometimes spring brings lots of new grass, but sometimes spring is a little slower in coming than we’d […]

Welcome to 2008

Thursday, January 10th, 2008

2008 - Wow…. it’s hard to believe another year has passed. Really it was a great one for us, in many respects. We’re all still healthy, we made a little money on the Weston house, we had a great time during hunting season, and we’ve had quite a bit of interest in the […]

The snow starts to fall…

Thursday, December 6th, 2007

The snowy season is upon us. It snowed enough on Tuesday that they cancelled school. Frank decided to take his chances and drive up to Mt Hope anyway to pick up his new manure spreader. He, Rachael and Kaya had a great day in the snow.
When they got back from their little […]

The young horses

Saturday, October 6th, 2007

Frank’s been starting to work with the young horses in harness…. which has created in his mind a little conflict. He’s got an old team, Scratchy and Mandy - but Mandy has arthritis, so is pretty gimpy most of the time now. He’d really like to use them, but feels a little guilty […]

Birthday Parties

Monday, October 1st, 2007

We had a great weekend - at both farms. Today (10/1) is Rach’s birthday - so this weekend we had a sleep over - 8 friends came over - which, besides being difficult to chauffer around, made our weekend very noisy - but fun.
We started out just letting the kids run, jump on […]

What it’s all about

Saturday, July 28th, 2007

This morning, Frank was out in the back fields working somewhere, and I couldn’t find him, so I had to to do some helping of the neighbor. Our Neighbors are an older couple who have some cows, one of which was having trouble birthing this morning. I looked all over for Frank, who […]

Lambs and Furniture

Saturday, March 24th, 2007

No, it’s not about lambs on the furniture - although that has happened in the past - I have some really cute photos of the great pyrenees puppy and a lamb on the Lazy Boy recliner!
This time, it’s about them separately!!! We have 2 lambs as of yesterday. Cute little white ones with […]

More Snow

Tuesday, February 13th, 2007

Where is global warming when you need it? We’ve been wrapped in cold, and I mean really cold, weather since mid January. Prior to that I might have even believed the global warming theory. As it is, we’ve had snow on the ground for about 6 weeks straight, and more is on […]
