Penny


Meet Penny! She is a five-year-old quarter horse that was given to us by a friend. She is very friendly and gentle, but a little green. I've been working with her, and she is very smart, and learns quickly, so I feel good about her future here on the farm.

Introducing a new horse into the herd is always exciting. Here is a video of their first encounter:

Big Tree Down


Thankfully, this old maple fell away from the house! Now the whole tree must be removed before it does fall on the house. This has been an incredibly stormy and tornado filled spring. We have had record rainfall and flooding. Wind, please be calm for a few days.

Silver Laced Wyandots

This is a Silver Laced Wyandot hen.





These are the SLW pullets I recently purchased.
Do you think some day they will look as beautiful?

Baby Foxes

We took a family vacation to Florida the week before Easter, and when we arrived back on the farm, all our chickens were gone. Then we saw this bunch playing in the field adjacent to our back yard. They were so cute, we didn't mind feeding them our chickens.

No More Jack


Our beautiful, sweet Great Pyrenees dog, Jack, was killed by a car on the edge of our yard. It has been over a month since it happened and we are still sad. Cami prays that Jack will go to heaven. She is the one who misses him the most. He was almost one year old.

Snowiest Winter Ever

This has been officially (according to me) the most snow we have ever had in one winter here in KY. Not much going on here on the farm worth reporting, but here are some pics: I call this one "icicle ears".
