Haymaking makes my Skinny Girlie Arms Ache.

A good ache though. Yesterday I made an electric fence run out the North side of the Barn for our slinky swine. This is primarily so that the pigs can root in the dirt. They get a lot of their essential minerals from the…

My Mother called it Crying Tired

That tired. So tired that the yawn splits your face and you forget to cover your mouth with your paw.  So tired that you have to lie down to eat and you don’t care who sees.  So tired that you don’t even talk to…

Queenie is sent to Coventry for Picking Fights…

..With Pigs. Yes you read right.  Queenie Wineti my sweet little Hereford heifer was caught picking a fight with a small PIG. It started out as such a soft and gentle misty day. The animals all slept in. The peacock added his new found…

Back to work – Piglets are coming tonight!

It is funny how when we are focused on a big event,  like the birth of the lambs, this event becomes very clear in your head and everything else goes really fuzzy. Now all of a sudden it is Friday morning. Two piglets are…

Yesterday I was taken for a driving lesson  in the free green 1953 Dodge pick up. So I can drive it to and fro with the asparagus that will soon be popping up if the weather stays this warm!  Did I tell you that…

A tiny bit of spring is not always pretty

You will remember that the day before yesterday we opened the Big Barn Doors so that our hawk could find his way out. Which he did.  I have left them open. Yesterday was fine and clear and gentle with just a touch of spring…

Mary’s Cat and The Visitor are sent outside to play on The Farmy..

“Don’t be scared. They said I could bring you out here. It will be fine. I promise. “ “It’s Ok they won’t hurt you.   They are herbivores.  (cattie laughter) See thats Queenie.” “What have you got out there Mary’s Cat?”  “What is it?”…
