Missing the buns today

Missing the buns today

At Cacia Farms we like to ensure that all of our rabbits enjoy life as much as possible, even the ones intended for our freezer. We provide them with top quality food, plenty of room to grow and live in, as well as many treats to have. Our adult rabbits that we use for breeding all have unique personalities. Pete loves to run and he also likes to visit his girls. Pete is not a huge fan of hard treats…

Snow Angels

Snow Angels

We spent a good portion of the evening moving our rabbit hutches and compost from our backyard into the front yard driveway.  Both the compost as well as the hutches are quite heavy.   The hutches also boast the quality of being both heavy, large, and awkward.  We used a sled to pull them through the 2 foot deep snow.  Once they were in the driveway I was so happy to be done with this project I flopped down in…

In a perfect world…

In a perfect world…

In a perfect world Jeff and I would be sitting in our great room on our super comfy couch with a roaring fire watching a epic movie.  Our dogs would be splayed out on the hardwood floor in front of the fireplace, with kitties scattered roosting on the beams of our log cabin.  Outside it would be gently snowing those huge beautiful flakes of snow.  Our open kitchen would be filled with the smell of pot roast cooking and apple…

Dixie

Dixie

We have two adult breeding Giant Chinchillas here at Cacia Farms.  I love my girls Dixie and Annabelle they are both wonderful rabbits.  Annabelle tends to be a bit more sensible than Dixie she is quiet and doesn’t mind being handled or me handling her babies.  Dixie on the other hand is much more emotional about life in general.  Dixie hates being picked up and handled and does not appreciate me touching or going near her babies.  The one great…

Horses are good for your soul 

Horses are good for your soul 

It has been a very stressful week for various reasons. I have also been extremely busy and have been unable to see my horse. I went out this morning and spent some quality time with him. Ace is always up to something and he was full of love and personality. He listened to all of my complaints about life and it was so calming to just brush him.  I am very thankful for Ace and often don’t know what I…

The thaw…

The thaw…

Spring is a lovely time flowers, birds chirping, baby animals, and mud.  Every year I get so excited for spring to come then remember that includes my yard thawing.  We have three dogs in our house which means a large quantity of poop accumulates over the winter months.  I try to clean the yard in winter as often as I can but that can be hard with snow and freezing.  Gus our border collie happens to love mud.  He really…

The Calling

The Calling

By Katie Morrison I’ve always enjoyed listening to people talk about what they’re passionate about. You can tell when their face lights up, and they suddenly become more animated. With each question you ask, and the more they share, you can tell they could just go on and on. I’ve always loved animals, and I’ve always wanted to farm. But somehow, at some point in my life I developed self doubt, and I think it started with tiny little, seemingly…

Its a farm not a circus…

     You would think that I would have learned the last time that we had babies in the garage that they are prone to escape.  Annabelle had her babies almost 2 weeks age meaning that they are getting brave and wiggly.  I came home from herding with Olive and Gus to find all of annabelle’s babies had flew the coop.  Luckily our garage is quite secure.  I had to get Gus to help me first find then round up…
