Sue Weaver began writing professionally in 1969, when her first article was published in The Western Horseman magazine. Since then, she’s written hundreds of articles, first specializing in horse magazines, then in publications affiliated with Hobby Farms magazine. She’s also written 10 books, four in the Hobby Farms series for BowTie Press and six for Storey Publications. All her books relate to livestock or farm pets, including goats, sheep, cattle, chickens, donkeys, llamas and alpacas.
Sue lives on a 29-acre property in the southern Ozarks near Mammoth Spring, Ark., along with her husband and a huge animal family composed of horses, full-size and miniature; a donkey; Classic Cheviot sheep; Boer and Nubian goats; llamas; a water buffalo; a Jersey-Holstein riding steer; a pet razorback hog; guinea fowl; Buckeye chickens; and a passel of dogs, most of which are former rescues. Animals are her passion and her friends; she is a vegetarian and does not eat them.
