    I hope he does as well. He deffinitly has more of his mothers genetics in him than his fathers! His father at that age was a scrawny little thing,but adonis? No way! he is almost 70 lbs and that was 3 weeks ago that we last weighed him! Molly is by far the best investment we could have made!

    Ut-oh... What's happening there Newton? So sorry to hear your last... Just so you know, no matter what happens with you and your family, you'll always be welcome here! Even should you have to depart that farm, we can be your "farm connection" to help you "maintain" and down the road, when you start your own farm, we'll still be here. Life isn't always a straight path, and you can't see around the corners as you travel. But set some reachable goals, and always travel toward them.

    What @Latestarter said @newton the goat !! Heck I'm stretching it BIG time being here. 2 alpacas and 19 chickens isn't exactly a farm or a herd. You might notice there isn't a lot of herd discussion in my journal. You are most welcome here whether you have a herd or not. I'm sure that even if you do stop being part of your Dad's farm, you'll have one of your own in the future.

    I am doing my best to currently set myself some reachable goals and currently that is going beck to school then moving to bc!
    ya i guess that is true. Things have just become too much out here. Sure i love being around my dad and my brother but certain members of my family keep trying to control my life and make it a living hell when i wont let them. So as soon as i am done school (if my application is accepted) i am moving down to BC to try and live a new life and start over. I will miss my girls like no tomorrow but i know my dad will care for them.ive just been around toxic people too long and its made me depressed and stressed which has its affects on my health recently. Good news is i know an older woman who always needs help with her chickens as she is getting up there in age so i wont be fully away from animals and maybe i can find a job on a sheep farm as well and the restaurant. Really moving there qill give me so many new opportunities to live! I wont be stuck in a job where i hate myself daily just for working there because its the only option. Plus it would be like returning home once more, i honestly miss the salty air of the shore side and the crisp breeze of the mountains. Sorry i seem to be rambling :hide to cut things short i feel like im missing something and im going to go find it and bring my little bunny rizzo along with me just so I have an excuse to post on here ;) 15472444195442429844954564929361.jpg
