  Rabbits, Rabbits, Rabbits...
I am very excited! I did a head count out in my rabbitry today and counted 173. I have 4 more rabbits due this week. Here's to hoping for full nestboxes!

  My best friend's kids (my kid's best friends) raise Hollands and Netherlands, so we are hoping to find something different for the girls. We're considering Dutch, Polish, and/or Tans.

  Cattle are great addition to any farm.

Our son like's his pig to be RED. We learn that having white pigs (Gilbert/Spot) on clay wasn't good for their skin. By the time they went to the butcher their skin was died to the clay color and our son lost money on the hide. Live, Learn and go with an all ready red pig...LOL.

Our pen set up is posted and loved the roof being over 1/2 and it helps with constante shade. Will extend it another 100' so our son will have a bigger walking pen for his show hogs.

  We have Hamp/York crosses. Our intention was to breed the gilt this year, but I think we're going to wait until next year to do any breeding. We found that the setup my husband used when he raised them in California isn't going to work for a very rainy Oregon. As soon as we butcher, I'll start working on improving the pen.

I was told last week that it would take 2 weeks for breeding to go back to normal in my barn once I put the lights up. Not remembering from last year, I was not happy. I have 40 does and can't let them sit idle. Yesterday (after only 3 days with lights), I went out and got 8 of my does to breed. Hopefully, I can get the other 6 to breed today!

  Thanks! With three young kids and more animals than a zoo, we definitely have our share of mishaps!
