    Keep or Sell? Names?

    Y’all take a look at this. My sister gave me a picture for Christmas. I looked at it and said, “you are not going to believe this, but I have a ewe lamb with those same markings!” I’ve been considering this ewe lamb, she is growing good, looks good, but comes from a wormy momma. Wormy mamma is...

    The Truck is Protected

    Our LGDs are marvelous animals, going above and beyond what we expect from them. Trip guards the sheep from predators, neighbors, garbage trucks and the like. He gallops down the driveway and clears the fence in a single bound into pasture 1 to run to the front fence to bark ferociously. He...

    Giant Pink Banana Squash

    I planted Giant Pink Banana Squash out of curiosity. I wanted to make pies and have something for sheep treats. I had 3 plants. They sprawled out, went over the fence and up a tree. I picked 6 squash, not bad. I made pie and pumpkin bread, delicious! After a hot dry summer, we finally got rain...

    Baymule’s 2021 Lambing

    Ok, it started a little early, there will be another one, but the rest will be in February 2021. I had Ringo with 2 ewes to sell as bred ewes. The buyer lost his job due to Covid and oil patch layoffs. He found another job, but not what he was making. House note, car notes, wife and 3 kids...

    October has started with more than the usual amount of crazy that goes on in our lives. BJ is scheduled for hip replacement October 14 and is counting down. He is in pain, lurching around and very unhappy at being sidelined. The good news is that the doctor said that his recovery won't be near...

    Shucking Corn With Ringo

    Yesterday I picked corn, got 53 ears. I dropped the tailgate on BJs truck, had a cleaver, 2 knives and a small board. I chop both ends with the cleaver and pull off the shucks. I had a plastic tote to drop the shucks in, there were some very over ripe pears in the bottom. I hadn’t done too much...

    Sheba-A Marvelous Gift

    I was contacted by a person wishing to remain anonymous, with an offer of an Anatolian puppy. As I read the generous offer to BJ, we both burst into tears. Because of Sentry’s hip dysplasia and surgery and our decision not to put him through another surgery, this person felt bad for us. Needless...

    Grass Tetany in Sheep

    Lady Baa Baa has been feeling “off”. I could see that she didn’t feel good. I figured she was hitting the uncomfortable stage of pregnancy and gave her tummy rubs. She laid down and I could see in her eyes that she wasn’t her usual self. She was eating the pellet Feed, hay and grazing in the...

    Coronavirus Covid-19 Is it Affecting You and How?

    This Coronavirus has people scared, buying up all the toilet paper and hand sanitizer in sight. Was just wondering how this is affecting the herd? Is anybody stocking up for a lockdown? If you are, what are you doing? We pretty much stay stocked up, but could probably get a few more bags of dog...

    Femoral Head Ostectomy and Hip Dysplasia in Sentry

    Hip Dysplasia. Words and diagnosis that strike fear and grief in any dog owner. That's the words we got February 12, 2020. Our vet said he has never seen hips so bad in a dog so young and called him a train wreck. We sure started out in a different place when we got Sentry. So full of...

    Baymule's 2020 Feeder Pigs!

    Here we go! Got two guilts today, Hampshire and Yorkshire cross. I’ve been looking, people sure are proud of their pigs this year. Finally found these an hour and half away and we went and got them. Sentry is in a pasture, not against the new Pigs, but he knew he didn’t like them. He barked...

    Taking Lambs To Slaughter

    Our lamb loading has a lot to be desired. We have invited our friend over to help us catch and carry lambs to the trailer, it took 2 or 3 of us, that worked, not great, but it worked. I have tackled them in the lot, slipped a halter on them and led/dragged them to the trailer with me pulling and...

    Ok @B&B Happy goats and @CntryBoy777 my Loquat tree is doing something! It looks like it is about to burst out in blooms. It is also going to be 28* tonight and 24* tomorrow night. Will the Loquat blooms survive the cold or is it doomed?

    Cougar Attack!

    Not a cougar attack on our place, but a cougar killed 5 goats only a mile from us several nights ago. We stood in line yesterday for 1 1/2 hours to vote and got to visiting with people. Behind us was a neighbor that we know and he was telling us about the goats being killed. His neighbor next to...

    Sentry, Baymule’s Livestock Guard Dog

    We have two Great Pyrenees, Paris and Trip. Paris is 10 and Trip will be 5 in November. Now is a good time to introduce and train a new puppy. I have been wanting an Anatolian. I was on a Facebook Sheep and goat group when I saw a post for a very Anatolian looking puppy. I kept going back to...

    When It’s 101* Outside

    When it’s 101 degrees outside, the boys know what to do. Watching TV through his eyelids. Soaking up the AC and donating dirt to the floor. Sigh...... Napping with his blue squeaky pig.
