Mom was looking at her calendar today. She checked it against her 2011 and 2012 calendars, and guess what? The frogs should start serenading us this month!
Mom has two new bottle babies. Theyâ€™re our smallest goats yet! Theyâ€™re Nigerian Dwarf preemies born 21 days before they were due.
Humans have strange New Yearâ€™s traditions. Did you know that people all over the English speaking world sing a Scottish song on New Yearâ€™s Eve?
Uzzi and I admire Mom and Dadâ€™s Christmas tree when we sneak into the house at night to use the computer. After Christmas, we get to eat it! Evergreen trees are a big part of humansâ€™ Christmas traditions.
Thursday is Thanksgiving Day. Itâ€™s a special day for us goats because we get yummy animal crackers, vanilla wafers and corn chips with our breakfast. Yippee!
You donâ€™t need a livestock trailer to transport small animals like sheep, goats, pigs and calves, but itâ€™s trickier to haul them in a truck or van.
Uzzi and I were munching the yummy, crisp leaves that fall in our paddock and gazing at the beautiful autumn colors in our woods when Uzzi swallowed and then said, “Why do they do that? Why do the leaves change colors before they fall?â€ť
Uzzi and I love this time of year because soon weâ€™ll be eating yummy pumpkins. Pumpkins are loaded with vitamin A and beta-carotene, the USDA says, and we think they just taste good!
Itâ€™s almost Halloween, so I bet youâ€™re thinking about what your animals will wear for dress up this year.
Weâ€™ve always had a lot of mice on our farmâ€”Mom calls our feed building Mousehavenâ€”but this year theyâ€™re much worse than before.
