The proudest moment on my farm: When all of my chicks moved out to their coop and none of them have had any illness since, (I have had 12 for one year now!) 2nd proudest was pulling my potbelly through a bout of pnemonia at only 8 weeks old and 1 lb! (yes one lb!)
Pets: Penni and Maddi are the farm dogs. Wilma is our potbelly pig and can do tricks, she recently moved outside fulltime after learning how to open doors and dog crates and any thing else that may keep a pig otherwise contained!
