  Lots of snow in our area. Love it for the moisture, but boy does it make feeding time a lot harder. lol All of our animals seem to be taking the cold pretty good, but I think we are all waiting for the nice warm sun to come out and shine again. I think the hardest part of it all was that the chicken coop door was a the lowest area of the yard so every morning I had to go out with a kettle of hot water and melt all the ice so I could open the door. We will have to trench away from the door before another bid snow storm hits.

  cold season
We are experiencing very cold temps. right now. We have heating lamps in the chicken coop and goat barn. I am a little worried about our Emu? Should I have a heat lamp or does he do fine and his body acclemate to the cold temps? He seems fine and healthy. Our kitties (show are about 6 mos. now) are a little spoiled. They love the heat lamp in the goat barn, they all snuggle in this little bed under the lamp. Silly little things. I really can't wait until Summer when its not so hard to take care of the animals.

  What does an Emu eat?
I am needing to get some info on feeding an Emu. Does anyone know? He loves lettuce, and will eat a "flock raiser" and come cracked corn. Is this enough for him?

I am so ready for Summer, are we there yet? I am getting excited for gardening, I keep getting the catalogs in for trees/flowers and veggies. I am hopping that in the next few weeks to have my garden all planned out, what and where. I also want to get some flowers esp. for honey bees. I would like to do my part and keeping them alive. So many plans and we will see how much gets done.

  Christmas at our farm
Its Christmas here at the farm. I wish we had some snow though. The animals seem to be doing fine in the colder weather, I would like to get some more water heaters so I don't have to break up the ice so much. Merry Christms my farm friends.

  Our old cat
We have had a cat for almost 13 yr.s now and I think he was 3 when we got him from rescue. He has lost most of his teeth so for the past year he has gotten spoiled and gets only soft food. REcently though, I have noticed blood in his urine and stools, I am a little worried about him now. I may have to take him to the vet but I am scard of what the news might be. We have 2 other indoor cats and 5 barn cats but I will still miss our old Paws.

  So our newest addition to our family, is an Emu. Yep, thats right, and Australian ostrich. His family was loosing thier farm and wanted a good home for him. We gladly accepted him into our family. I absolutly love him. I didn't think he would be so personalable. His favorite treat is iceberg lettuce. We are in the process of making him his own lofting shed. Right now he just has some straw under a tarp, and he deserves so much more then that. I am learning about Emus now and would love any help or info on our sweet "elmo"

  The goats found the farmers wheat
Our goats have always been allowed to be free-range, sometimes this is a good thing and sometimes not so much. We are surrounded on 3 sides from the same farmer. Nice enough guy. well, the goats were roaming the other day and they got a scent of the "wheat" the farmer is growing, and now I can't let them out of their pen because they go straight for it. They are stubborn little girls too. you start pulling on them to get them out, they will lay down and refuse to go anywhere. So I try to push and pull and yell but, Cheyenne, the one with horns, acts like she doesn't understand what in the world i am trying to do. So frustrating. So now they are spending thier days in the pen, crying and baaing like there is no tomorrow. Silly girls.

  getting ready for horses
When we moved into our new "farm" almost a year ago now, we knew we had a lot of work ahead of us, inside and out. We have come a long way. Recently, we were given 2 horses, which is absolutly wonderful, and it is, until you look out in the pasture and realize that it is no way ready for 2 horses. The fences are all broken, there are piles of dirt and trash everywhere,and danger lurks in every corner. We have been mending fences, removing trash and, bless my dads heart, he is over every weekend helping move dirt and whatever else needs moved with his awesome tractor. I think I can finally see the end of the tunnel so we can bring our sweet horses home, now after 2 months. Just a little more time.
