Everyone loves the pugs!

Boots, one of our cats, sharing the bed with Tito & Tarabelle.

Belinda, the house goat (only temporarily ... lol), couldn't squeeze in so took the other bed!

Another Cat!

My mother was having a hard time taking care of Smokey so today he came back home here to stay with his mother and brother. He isn't sure what to think about the pugs yet but other than that he has made himself quite at home here as you can see in the photo.

New Additions

We just added several new animals to our cow herd.  Shown above is our new Red Angus heifer and Black Angus/Hereford cross steer.  The other steer was being shy.

Demolition Complete

This milk house next to the barn no longer exists.  Too bad it wasn't salvageable.

The house is completely gone.  All that is left is the small ice house which we will take down next spring.

Demolition Begins

Demolition of the house and milk house on our property down the road began yesterday before the storm hit.  Too bad I didn't get a before picture of the house.  The photo of the barn is prior to the demolition of the milk house.  I will post after pictures later today.

First Winter Storm

Here's a pic of the chicken coop in the fresh snow.

The Dangers of Goats With Horns!

We just heard this on the radio today as we were coming back from helping a friend vaccinate calves.  I always knew horns were dangerous to the goats themselves having experienced them getting caught in fencing and feeders but this is the first I have heard of a human fatality.
