Dream Big

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…

Change is in the air…

Fall is upon us here in upstate NY and with that the rush to get everything prepared for winter.  The girls will need to be sheared next month along with trimming their feet.  This will also mean I will have five more fleeces to take to the fiber mill to be made into yarn.  We have made a nice area on the hill to allow the sheep to winter closer to the house to make chores easier in the winter….

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…

When Henley and I went out to collect egg this morning Betty came running over to us!  I thought to myself here we go what is Betty up to today!  Well little Miss Betty said I would never guess what has happened!! Betty told me how Henrietta (one of the production red hens) had decided she wanted to be a mother hen.  You can imagine what Betty had to tell Henrietta!  Betty then went on to tell me how she…

Lazy Days

Lazy Days

My little girls loves to play in he floor in the mornings which works out well for me!  This gives me time in the morning to eat my breakfast and get some much needed caffeine in.  This morning I am also casting on a new project to take with me on vacation next week.  Eventually today we will have to go outside as I am hoping to get the chicken coop cleaned out today.

I have so many pictures of Ace in my phone and I love them all.  If anyone else looked through my photos they might wonder since they are all variations of the same photo.  I have pictures of Ace eating grass, Ace in the crosswise, Ace’s pretty neck while riding, Ace all saddled up but by far my favorite photos are the big white blurry photos of his nose.  Ace has always been a nosy horse and very much likes…

Good For My Soul

Good For My Soul

Today I was the first day since having my baby that I got to go down and do chores by myself.  I have missed my animals terribly and was just as happy to see them as Ace was to see me.  Ewestace and Purl were even happy to see me!  Gus worked well for me tonight and didn’t even try to get away with anything naughty.

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…

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…
