    It was an "I quit" day.

    Is this your rescue horse? She looks so good. And, a good helper.

    Thats not the only bright spot. A lot of good things have happened because we have been forced to look at things differently. My dad had suggested we make a pond out of the water that finds its way to our place. I kinda like that idea. If we do it just right we may not have to water our...

    They are actually blaming him for the accident. They said he pulled out in front of the car. That car had to be going at a super fast speed to have done the damage they did and to not have seen him sitting at the corner. He states he clearly looked both ways. He knows that is a dangerous...

    I missed you. My FIL is doing miraculously well considering he was thrown several feet in the air and landed on the back of his head. I would consider him 90% recovered. They are however making it impossible to his license back. They say his reaction time is too slow. Hes 74 years old, doesnt do...

    Life has been super “crazy, hectic, shattering, expensive, stressful“ maybe tumultuous is the right word. It’s been one thing after another. I just snipped this from one of my comments to a comment in here. It might be easier than retyping it all over again. Actually a month ago (late...

    Actually a month ago we were fighting excessive amounts of water on our property. There was mud everywhere! From our vehicles, our goats, walking back and forth on the same path. We were inundated with what felt like a sunami. When we should have been preparing for winter, we were trying to get...

    I’m sorry, life has been hectic, sometimes chaotic, challenging, and overwhelming. We are trying to trim the excess so we manage the important stuff.

    Could a livestock guardian be warranted?

    We are buying 16 acres for our homestead. There is mixed land on it. I can see 3-4 as hay or corn. There is a couple islands of wooded area. We can see possibly pasturing pigs and goats on as much as 4 acres. There is really nice pasture land on most of it. There is a creek that runs along one...

    We found out there is even a creek running through it. The property is absolutely gorgeous. There is a whole lot of land, trees, grasses, berries, flowers, and a creek behind the trees in the views of the yard. We did find one thing that was a bit alarming. Scat, we think bear. There have been...

    We were using his lawyer. He didn’t want to work with a realtor or anyone using a realtor. That alone should have tipped us off to run as fast as possible away from that deal.

    Senile Texas Aggie - comic relief for the rest of you

    The heat has been quite warm in western Wisconsin. But, it’s the humidity that seems to be the worst part about the weather. Even at 7pm it feels like 90 degrees . I really feel bad for our rabbits and goats. Our pigs seem to enjoy the weather as long as they have mud to wallow in.

    I’m sorry. It has been a jam packed summer. We haven’t even made it to our cabin yet this year. My husband is going back to work today. He’s been on vacation since the morning of July 4th. I think he’s secretly happy to be going back as well. He’s been kept super busy. We are finally out of our...

    We gave her the option of calling her Hot Lips or Hunnicutt. For some reason she liked Hunnicutt. Silly girl.

    Thank you. These little ones have a different mentality than any of the other goats I’ve had. These little ones are like tanks or bulldozers. My other goats would climb on another ones back to get them out of their way. Independent little tanks with short little legs.

    We have added a few little ones to our herd. We need to have a few little goats that don’t get bigger than Abigail. We found a few Nigerian Dwarf. They are the funniest little guys I’ve ever seen. This is Hunnicutt. Radar O’Reilly. He hasn’t always had a curled ear, but we love it and him...

    Nigerian Dwarf with a curled ear

    Thank you. It’s good to know it isn’t harmful for him or a sign of something wrong. We don’t think we will do anything for him other than call him Radar O’Reilly (Radar) I think it might be too late. He doesn’t mind us touching it, but he doesn’t like it uncurled. For that reason alone, I think...

    Nigerian Dwarf with a curled ear

    I bought a few Nigerian Dwarfs a couple of days ago. All between 1-4 weeks of age. One of them has a curled ear. His ear didn’t start curling until he was about a week old. He’s cute as heck. But, I have to wonder if this could be the result of a deficiency or is this something that will need...
