There has been a lot of things that have happened since the last post. Harvest would be one of the biggest of them. All of the corn and soy are down now and it looks really weird. I guess the cold is on its way. Steve got to help out a lot with harvest, which was great.
We have also acquired five new barn cats. The girls bus driver had a new liter of barn kitten and we were able to pick three of them out. Then our neighbor decided to give us two more. At first we were not sure how everyone was going to get a long but they are all good friends now. They are all really funny. When ever they see a person they go strait for them and want to be pet and picked up. Everyone loves them even the other animals.
Along with the new kittens we have a new goat. Or at least we have a new goat for a few months. He is hear only to breed with our females. His name is Jack and he is really good at escaping and causing trouble. I think everyone will be happy when the day comes he gets to leave. Hopefully by that point all three of them will be pregnant.
Does anyone remember that huge junk pile we had on our property? Well because the crop is down now we were able to burn the whole thing! It looks so much better now.
For Penny’s birthday last year we promised to get her a ATV. So as promised with the help of our awesome neighbor Penny now has her present. The rest of the family is also enjoying getting to use it.
We made a new pasture for the horses and they love it! Cowboy is such a goofy guy.
Unfortunately we have had to say good buy to Alymoe. We had come a long way with her but she was starting to get dangerous and we were not able to put in enough time to make her into a good horse. We gave her to a person that is taking her to Kentucky to use her in a breading farm. This is going to be the best thing for her. Now she gets to eat all day and get papered. Good luck Aly!
With the snow on its way we need a plow to plow our own drive way. This is the one that we eventually got. Its old but works well.
Paige finaly got to come back home for Thanksgiving break!
It was nice to have her home. While she was back we got more hay for cowboy and the goats. There was also plenty of time to have fun with the animals and each other.
While everyone was home we decorated for christmas! Being the first christmas here it was hard to figure out where we wanted to put anything. I think everything ended up in a great place.
Poor Rooster the other night got sprayed by a skunk. It smelled so bad and he was so unhappy. Luckily after manny washes he is starting to smell and feel better.
I’m sure there will be many more crazy stories to come.
