  Thanks for visiting!
That is a 1 in a mill pict! Awesome!
So, I have a cat named Monkey and you really do have monkeys- neat! I sometimes refer to our place as a zoo but only because of all the critters, nothing to do with the variety!

Have you ever milked any Jerseys or do you only feed them out? I've been talking to Wisteria Suri Ranch and it all began cuz she was wondering about a family milk cow. I recommended sweet cute Jerseys but we have only ever had 1 Jersey and I wasn't around the farm much at that time. So if you have any experience with them, I'll send her your way!

Have a good LONG wkend!!

Come visit me, Rock Pile Ranch.

  Great suggestion, thank you
WOW, thank you for the great suggestion for a sign for our farm. I'll have to try to develop one. Maybe I'll put it up here once I do.

Hope your day is a good one!

Extra neat that you caught a double rainbow. A variety of animals there . . . sounds like fun, though. Monkeys . . . wow bet they are fun to be with. Intelligent animals aren't they? Great day to you!

  Thx for the visits and comments
My husband is the only one good at taking pics here unless I wait for my 1 in a million and delete 999,999 of them. I enjoy seeing what other people raise and learning how they do it so I can do better with our own!
