Farngirl to gymnist in 3 easy steps

Posted by Sue on July 8, 2015 at 4:55 PM

I hear Blogging is all the rage these days! I am taking business classes that tell us that if you want your business to grow you MUST blog.  So I am blogging about blogging.  HHmmmm....  I don't think this is what they meant...  OK, would you like to hear how a farm girl becomes a gymnist?

So Monday, I am feeding the sheep.  Which now number in the upper 30's.  (Nature! WOW!)  Anyhow, I am feeding the sheep and because I love my sheep so much I sometim...

Ready or not...here's a new post.....

Posted by Sue on August 23, 2011 at 10:40 AM

Lately we've been busy.  And that's a good thing.  :-)  I kind of mentioned on the front page how we have recently headed towards the sheep and wool full time ...and I should say how I have headed that way. 

You see I'm the one that is scattered!  Like I'm a wild flower out in the pasture and the winds blow and suddenly I'm blowing seeds EVERYWHERE.  Do you know what I mean?   You see, I've been incredibly blessed...

50????

Posted by Sue on December 10, 2010 at 8:10 AM

WooHoo!! This morning I stepped outside to see what the day would hold as far as weather.  It is quite balmy!  YEA!!!  I listened to the weather and it is supposed to be 50 degrees today!!  YAHOOO!! And none to soon as I've started developing a cold and my ears are quite achy.  (I used my Garlic Mullein oil last night..they are getting better) 

BUT....the weather is about to get worse.  So today will be busy trying to get the barn cozy for the goats a...

Ok, so I got a little busy...

It has been a long hard summer for us and I finally have some time to devote to the website since it's been frigid outside.  Today though seemed like a heatwave! It got above freezing.  YEA!!!!  The goats, sheep and cow and I were all out in the pasture doing a happy dance.  Have you ever seen a goat doing a happy dance??  NO??? Really???  Well, have you ever seen me, the non dancer, do a happy dance??  I think it might rival the goats!!!  HA!  But...

Is it really March?

Posted by Sue on March 10, 2010 at 9:01 AM

Really?  Where does time go?  Where's the nice weather?  Ok, I know that it has been nice the last few days but all in all it has been a brutal winter.  Or maybe my world has changed so much in the last few years that even though it's 20 degrees out I still have to go to the barn and take care of all the critters.  (What was I thinking??  80+ animals and a crops to boot??) 

But I must admit....I L O V E it! :D  And, I feel like ...

Can you ride a goat?

Posted by Sue on February 18, 2010 at 1:17 PM

Kind of a silly quesiton, no?  Well let me tell you about my day...............

It started out as a beautiful sunny day.  A little cool and muddy muddy muddy...but I was choosing to look up and think"Ah, sun!"

 

So I decided to go check on the goats and see what's up with them.  They are all sunbathing and just looking content.  I decide "Nonsense!" Let's stir it up...I'll trim their nails.  Goats are not...

Questions answered

Posted by Sue on February 15, 2010 at 10:10 AM

Hello there!

 

We've been getting several questions about how our animals are fed.  I wanted to post that here so everyone can see at once.

 

Our birds(chickens, ducks, turkeys, geese, and gunieas) are all free ranging.  That means that they have full access to all 8 of our acres.  They also wander onto the 12 acre hay field next to us.  No chemicals are used on any of those 20 acres.  We use no chemical fertilizers, treatments, noth...

Anticipation

Posted by Sue on February 5, 2010 at 9:08 AM

Good Morning!

 

Today holds many possibilities for our farm.  Jil and I (Sue) are heading to the meeting I breifly mentioned yesterday.  The local PBS station is hosting it and has invited some big (possible) customers for local producers.  From what I understand there will also be some insurance folks there and other business type of resources.  This is such a great contact for us to make..who knows maybe someday we'll be featured on Volunteer Gardening o...

A La Nina Winter

Posted by Sue on February 4, 2010 at 10:20 PM

We've been told time and time again that this is a LaNina winter.  oh yea.  It is raining again here at the farm and the pasture is mushy.  Or sloshy...if that's even a word.  First it snowed here last Friday, then it iced.  Then it melted and now it's raining.  If you know anything about goats...they are NOT happy.  Poor Enya.  She stays in the barn most of the day.  The others come out and it almost looks like they are tip toeing.  And, then...

Cooments are off

It would appear that creepy creeps are everywhere.  I had a guest comment area and the creeps went there to leave cryptic messages, so I deleted that page.   Now they are leaving comments on this blog.  Fine! Disabled Comments.  So Sorry, ya'll, I will not have them junking up my pages and will disable them any chance I get!!  

GO AWAY CREEPS!!!!!
