Feels Like Home To Me

Feels Like Home To Me

Growing up I loved going to visit my family in Oklahoma!  I was most definitely an outdoor kid and loved the time I spent on my grandparents farm.  There was always a certain way that their farmhouse sounded, smelled and felt when I was there.  I moved a lot as a kid and after graduating college I moved back home to Oklahoma.  I will always associate Oklahoma as my home even though I grew up in several states.  Growing up…

A Few Misconceptions

A Few Misconceptions

Gus here, I just wanted to clear some things up.  First of all Olive should not be aloud to use the computer no telling what she might say!  Second its very hard to be farm boss and we can’t all be perfect.  I know that Mom thinks that she is farm boss but really my Dad is farm boss but since he has to be at his other job I have to do the job here.  We like to let…

But Why?

But Why?

While waiting for Purdy to eat her breakfast grain this is an ongoing conversation I have with Purl one of our Lincoln Longwools and my favorite sheep next to Ewestace of course. Purl:  I see you brought Purdy grain for breakfast again… Me:  Why yes Purl I did. Purl:  I see and why do I not get grain? Me:  Well Purl you don’t need grain to be nice you’re just friendly all the time.  Purdy however will become a feral…

Every morning I walk down the hill and am greeted by two of the most wonderful horses I could ask for.  Badger usually nickers his hello while Ace screams like an idiot.  Ace gets to wait in his stall in the morning while Badger helps me count scoops to ensure that I correctly count everyones breakfast.  After everyone is all snug eating their breakfast I usually sit in the tack room on the stacked pine shaving bales while the horse…

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….

Clean and Dry

Clean and Dry

Yesterday my husband made our sheep a hay manger for their hay to be in so it is off the ground and dry.  I can’t tell you how nice it is to have a husband that is handy and can build things for me when I need him to.  My sheep will stay clean and dry this winter and so will their hay, this will make me and Purdy happy campers this winter!

Farm update

Farm update

I thought I would give a general update on the farm for everyone today.  Lola the pig and I have come to an understanding, which is Lola isn’t allowed to taste me or eat me when I go into her enclosure and I will continue to feed her.  Instead of charging me and trying to taste me she now will stand on the other side of her pen while I feed her and change her water.  I know this is…

The big kid room…

The big kid room…

I spent half the week painting the upstairs bedroom (which is twice as big) so that Jeff and I could move upstairs.  Amazingly I didn’t get any paint on any pets and only a little on me.  As we were cleaning up after the painting stuff Jeff suggested we clean the carpet, it smelled a little musty from being closed and the previous owners of the home smoked so it still smelled a little of smoke.  I recently became a…
