About Time Ladies

Well it would seem that one of my fall chicks has finally decided that she will begin laying eggs. Her eggs have been this beautiful greenish blue color since she started laying a couple of weeks ago. This year we did choose to start over with basically a new flock of chickens we only held back one of the older hens to help teach the younger chicks how to chicken. I am beginning to dream of the angel food cakes…

I thought it might be time to formally introduce the two newest members of our farm! Olaf and Sven had heard about the awesome yoga classes we offer and they both thought that some yoga would help with their anger management problems. Of course we welcomed these lovely but spicey boys with open arms and hands full of cookies. It’s been about 2 months I think that they have been here and they are doing great! We figured out what…

All Roads Lead To Yoga

All Roads Lead To Yoga

We been busy doing farm improvements here. Last year we started building a gravel road that goes to the barnyard and it’s coming along so nicely! This will be so helpful for yoga this summer as it will provide extra parking as well as making it easier to get hay to the barn.

Winter Is Here

Winter Is Here

It was a wintery wonderland this morning when I went out to do chores. Not only were the sheep covered in snow but so was everything else. Norma is our only ewe having any lambs this year as we make a switch in our focus here on our farm. Norma’s lamb should hit the ground sometime between now and the mid march but she certainly doesn’t seem to be in a hurry. We are gearing up here to start making…

At the same time he will jump out of nowhere and latch onto you like a tree with not a care in the world that your skin is not in fact made of bark. He also enjoys dumping the poop form EVERY SINGLE TIME right before of…

We bought a miniature horse this year and man did I not fully understand the amount of hair involved in owning a mini. He is solid fluffy hair his mane and tail are THICK and long and really unruly. Shortly after we bought him I ended up shaving him because he seemed to be so hot and uncomfortable and itchy. I bought him a new harness this spring and when I measured him apparently I did not account for the…

Time To Wrap It Up

Time To Wrap It Up

As I stand here skirting fleeces from our sheep I can’t helo but think about all the things I had intended to get finished and accomplished this year.  Most of the things on my list I finished far and above some became irrelevant and some new ones came up.  For countless people, December is a month for celebrating and focusing on family, friends and what’s truly important. It’s a month for great food and fun times …and giving gifts.But before…

Dashing Through The Neighborhood

I was ground driving our miniature horse this morning I took this opportunity to think about all the things I accomplished this year and what next year will look like for our farm. This time last year I was dreaming of my new horse Sass and planning my trip to Florida to pick her up! This was a new adventure for me as she is trained predominately as a driving horse and not a riding horse but I was super…
