Goat Rodeos and Cow Wrangling

It’s been an eventful stressful 24 hours.  Yesterday about this time, I put Gwen and her calf friend down into the lower pasture.  Around 5:30 PM, Wally and I walked down to bring them up, but we couldn’t find them.  We walked around and around the pasture looking for them.  I went back to the […]

The best laid plans …

Well, we didn’t get done what we wanted to get done yesterday. The day started poorly because I didn’t get enough sleep … again! How do you know when you don’t get enough sleep? When you put udder wash in the milk bucket instead of the bucket it belongs in. We did get all of […]

Making peace with Facebook.

I wrote a while back about my disgust with FB.  There are still some things that I hate about FB, like all the games, farm town, and all the gibberish, but since I’ve started a FB page for Spellcast Farm and am in charge of maintaining the Rock House Farm FB, I am starting to […]

The Hearing …

It was brutal. I’m so glad Wally went with me for moral support; but if nothing else to drive me there because I don’t know what would have happened if I drove myself. The GM of MM tried digging up all sorts of dirt on me, but thank goodness none of it was valid. Checked […]
