Are We There Yet?

Are We There Yet?

Every one can I’m sure imagine that annoying child who asks 300 times if they have arrived at the destination… it’s me I’m that kid. We have reached mid January also known as half way to cabin fever crazy can’t wait until spring time. As I aimlessly scroll through Facebook and see all my fellow sheep farmers have started lambing my farming soul gets itchy. Much to my ewes dismay I start staring at them. The staring is usually followed…

A journey

A journey

This journey of moveing hasn’t exactly been filled with happiness.   When I call my realtor to look at properties I always ask her if she is ready for an adventure.  I know that once this whole process is over with and the stress of moveing is done we will be so grateful.  In the meantime I will try to find joy or at least humor in the journey and wear each gray hair I’m getting with honor!

Change is in the air

Change is in the air

Fall is quickly taking hold with the trees shedding their leaves and frost on the ground when I wake up. We put up more permanent fencing on the hill for the sheep to winter on.  The waters in the pastures this morning had a nice layer of ice on top that I broke apart for the animals. I realized that I have been feverishly knitting christmas gifts but don’t have a pair of mittens for myself. I worked Gus today…

This changes things…

Motherhood is something that no class, no lectures from wise older moms and no amount of research can prepare you for.  I spent the majority of my pregnancy (which to me seemed years long) pretending that we would magically skip over the whole birth thing.  I am sure that most first time mom’s have many of the same worries that I had while pregnant with my kiddo.  Will I be a good mom, will she love me, how will I…

Dream Big

In dreams and in love there are no impossibilities. -Janos Arnay I thought it might be time to introduce ourselves since we have acquired so many new followers.  If you have been following us from the beginning you might have noticed that Cacia Farms has been many things. We started out when I convinced my husband we would raise meat rabbits on our 1/4 acre lot in our small town. Well 30 some odd rabbits, 3 cats, 3 dogs, and…

Not Impressed!

Not Impressed!

When my husband woke up late and asked if the baby and I could do morning chores yesterday I had no idea what I was in for!  Usually chores are easy and relaxing as I love going out and talking to my sheep (I call them my girls) all while Purdy dutifully watches over them.  Everything was off to a great start the horses were well behave and eating in their stalls while I walked out to do the sheep…

What are you waiting for?

What are you waiting for?

I had the most wonderful birthday yesterday spending quality time for myself.  My wonderful mother in-law watched my beautiful baby for me giving me the day off.  I had a lot of time to think about the past years up and downs and what I had learned from them.  Last year we made the decision to finally jump in and buy the farm.  We no longer wanted to wait to have our farm and start our dream.  Shortly after finding…

Naked Sheep!

Naked Sheep!

Over the weekend we got so much accomplished to finish up before winter comes.  It happened that a warm front is passing through so we were thinking about the coming winter on an almost 80 degree day.  Sunday morning we woke up early and got Lola pig into her travel box to take her to the butcher on Monday morning.  We chose to do this early so that not only would my Mom and I have Jeff’s help but if…

I am incredibly happy to have both the horses home on the farm with us.  Ace is also incredibly happy supervising my chores.  He follows me to the sheep pasture and watches while I do their chores, he watches me clean the stalls, fill buckets and pass out hay.  I missed my horse horribly bad after we moved to the farm and he was still boarding an hour away, there was no need apparently to worry about our bond though….
