    Thanks I really needed to hear that. These days have been very trying. I know now why I had my kids in my early 20's.

    bethh Life on the Funny Farm

    I sure hope so. We spend lots of time talking about it. Since school has been out, I’ve had 3 of the boys almost daily. I try and do life lessons each day and teach them something new. I think Harrison, above, had life lessons daily in Montessori. Last week, I taught him about hanging...

    Still running crazy here on the Funny Farm. I can’t imagine how things will be when the goats deliver. Hope all the mommas can feed their babies. Not planning to have to bottle feed but will have supplies on hand if necessary. Dixie is the first due in about a month. She is really...

    Welcome. I have Nigerian Dwarf goats. I'm a relative newbie. They are lots of fun and work. Here are 3 of mine.

    Wow, wrangling grandkids sure keeps this grandma busy. It has been non-stop. I know this pandemic has some people looking for things to do, not me. I can't find time to do the things I need to do. Thought I'd post a few pics from last week or so. The goats are starting to show. I'm getting...

    Nap didn't happen. My doorbell rang and the inside dogs started barking. I was out of bed like a shot. I was so afraid it was going to wake them all up. Grandma needed some quiet time. LOL. Once I recovered from the door bell, I stayed up knowing I didn't have time to take a legit nap. I...

    Your sheep are beautiful. You need a couple of Dalmatians.

    Sounds like me when people ask how many chickens I have. My goats I can still count on one hand.

    Wow, my days have been very busy with the grandkids. They keep me hopping. Everyone is taking a nap and the rain is headed here soon. Thinking I’ll take one of those coveted naps as well. I bit the bullet and ordered myself a cabinet incubator. I’ve enjoyed hatching chicks but the smaller...

    So very hard to find someone. Where I live, we are the odd balls. No one really close by that has farm animals. I used to work in a vet office and one of my co-workers would come take care of the animals but our critters have increased. I always paid her generously so that she would...

    The rain stopped so I need to get out and take care of everyone this morning. But before doing that thought I’d post this pic. We have to go out of town overnight to finish cleaning out my mil‘s house. Our daughter is going to manage the chores this evening and in the morning with the help...

    farm dogs for someone with goats and chickens

    To protect our chickens and goats, we have Gracie, great pyrenees/Anatolian shepherd/kangal mix and she’s amazing. We also have a pure bred Great Pyrenees, Fitz, and he is really growing into his job. Gracie is an amazing teacher. Before purchasing any lgd, I make sure that they have been...

    Gardner’s California Homestead

    Rather than working on my morning chores, I just sat here reading your journal. I will enjoy following along. The lessons nature teaches us is invaluable. Recently we put up more fencing (eventually we will be experts), to keep the LGDs out of the garden beds around our patio. Planted them...
